Mona Lee Yousef, LCSW, CASAC, CADC, MAC
I am a dedicated, perceptive and highly competent clinician with 25 years postgraduate experience. Certified in Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, I also hold state, national and international certifications in addictions treatment and have taught as well as supervised in the areas of addiction/recovery, HIV/AIDS and personality disorders. I have worked intensively and extensively with those struggling with (and recovering from) all forms of addictive disorders: alcohol/drugs, sexual compulsivity, eating disorders, gambling, spending. In addition, I am strongly experienced in and sensitive to issues of loss, trauma, identity, illness and sexuality and work well with those whose personality-states disrupt their strivings for authentic connection and intimacy.
I treat an adult clientele of diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds and all sexual and gender identifications. I believe that each person's therapeutic journey is unique; my commitment is to fostering a safe and supportive connection between us where all thoughts, feelings, issues, desires, conflicts and dysfunctional patterns may be honestly, creatively and compassionately explored.
I work empathically and interactively with you to provide a Relational analytic experience which will effect profound growth and change in your relationships with yourself and with others. I respect the courage it takes to reveal and reflect on oneself in therapy and offer compassion, structure, humor and balance. Additional information may be found in the "Services" section.
