Piyumi

My name is Piyumi Buddhakorala and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York. I have over eight years of experience working with individuals with trauma, substance use, employment concerns, depression, anxiety, psychotic, bipolar and borderline symptoms. My approach with you is non judgmental, empathic, strength-based, and collaborative. I foster a warm and safe environment in which you can share whatever is troubling you. I believe that you are the expert of your life and I am there as a source of support. Together we can unpack your stressors and develop coping skills so that you can enjoy life and have meaningful relationships.



Some of the modalities I use are Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Person-Centered, Trauma informed treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness techniques, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, & Crisis Management.


Congratulations on taking the first step and seeking therapy. I am here to support and empower you in the direction you choose to go. So let's get started!
