Kaerensa Craft's bio

This content was provided by Kaerensa Craft "My career in mental health began in 1997 with pursuing a Master of Science degree in Social Work at Columbia University, concentrating in social policy affecting families and children while providing support services to families in the foster care system. Over the next few years, I provided education and counseling services to victims and perpetrators of relationship abuse, gaining a multi-faceted perspective about the dynamics of healthy and unhealthy relationships. In 2002, I began working with alcohol and substance abuse at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, where I gained considerable clinical training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) with an excellent team of social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists. In 2008, I completed the requirements for Certification in Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling (CASAC). Since 2009, I have worked on various psychology research studies investigating psychotherapy interventions for alcohol use disorders. In an effort to gain complementary perspectives and training, I pursued and completed a 2-year training program in 2005 in psychodynamic psychotherapy of adults at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Education at NYU School of Medicine. I went on to complete three years of training with the Stephen Mitchell Center for Relational Studies. My dual background of cognitive-behavioral therapies and psychoanalysis enable me to offer an integrated model to people looking for help to make behavioral changes while also resolving deeper-level issues."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Kaerensa Craft "So often people seek out providers who specialize in a particular area (for example, drinking, anxiety, or depression), and without thinking about it, imagine that the treatment might focus singularly on that issue alone through behavioral exercises to reduce the symptoms. However, in most cases, the symptom is the result of complex processes, including faulty ways of thinking about things and various choices being made (with varying levels of awareness). I am happy to help people with short-term behavioral modification, though my ideal approach is to try to help people untangle and resolve the deeper-level issues that result in symptoms for longer-lasting and more fulfilling change."
