Hi there, I'm Assata!

Assata Terry is a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor.

My approach

Assata uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy principles and strategies, person-centered therapy, and additional therapeutic interventions to encourage personal growth and self-expression. Assata uses an integrative approach, with a foundation in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and a holistic perspective, to guide individuals while they explore issues, gain perspective, learn effective coping skills, and create solutions that bring relief.

My focus

I specialize in working with adults who have experienced Complex Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, Depression, difficulty with adjusting to a life-altering event, and other circumstances that require a safe, nonjudgmental approach.

My communication style

I will create a safe and nurturing environment for my clients. My approach is supportive, genuine, and empathetic. I value building a trusting relationship with my clients which encourages the healing process and the therapeutic work ahead.

My goals for you

Clients can expect to create an individualized treatment plan that includes identifying, examining, and modifying unhelpful beliefs and behaviors to achieve optimal wellness. Goal setting will be a collaborative effort between the therapist and client based on the needs and concerns that are identified during the initial session.

My first session with you

Clients can expect to partake in an intake and diagnostic assessment during their first session. I will ask questions to learn more about their social, psychological, and family history. We will explore current issues and needs for therapy. We will also commit to a schedule for future sessions.
