Marcy Abramsky, LCSW, Counseling InspireAmind®️& Licensed Clinical Social Worker serving areas near East Amherst, and New York State Online

I am a licensed clinical social worker in private practice serving clients in and around East Amherst, Western New York, and New York State online, as well as on-site, as needed.

I have experience in understanding the challenges related to owning a business, working in the medical field, as an educator. Coping: chronic illness ( family or adolescent with a parent struggling with cancer), caregiver for a senior with Alzheimer’s or another difficult long-term issue). Management of unwanted symptoms related to anxiety, stress, overwhelm or needed motivation to get started on moving forward on a project, etc.

In addition, I am permanently certified as a NYS School Social Worker, NYS School Building Leader and have my NYS Professional Certification in School District Leadership. I have also had further training, and many other experiences outside of schools.

I understand what students and parents go through. I understand school disability, and medical needs. In this challenging time of social distancing … I am here to help.

Whether a parent, student, senior or caregiver or a person ready to improve upon themselves and make some changes, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and for you.

I look forward to working with you by addressing your challenges and assisting you in reaching your goals.

Treatment Approach

I use a variety of approaches to address the unique needs of my clients. Many successful treatment plans have utilized a foundation in cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, person-centered, and solution-focused brief therapy work.
Next, continuing to work together, we move toward a tailored treatment plan and an approach that includes tools to help sustain the type of growth that you would experience in our regular sessions. This can also be fluid, and change, if needed.

Additionally, research supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. In tandem, I focus my work in helping people believe in themselves. There is absolutely power in positive thinking! The results of Neuroscience research ( I’ll spare you the reading) reveals that people that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal challenging memories from the past, and manage challenges they are presently facing.

It is my honor and mission to help my clients through their barriers and reach their full potential. 

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
