Our Team

Kate Papacosma, LMSW


My primary goal is to ensure a climate of trust and creative collaboration for a journey of discovery and healing. I take the time to know each client as well as I can, so they feel as fully seen and heard as possible. This will help them hone the tools to see and hear themselves more clearly, as well. 

People seek my support for a variety of reasons, including anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship- and work conflict, parenting, life transitions, and more. I work with adults, adolescents, and children using an integrative approach, offering a unique balance in response to the needs and preferences of each client. When working with children, I collaborate closely with their parents to ensure consistency. 

My areas of focus include psychodynamic theory, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-informed care, play therapy and playfulness, and mindfulness. 

Knowledge gained as a landscape historian and educator has led me to decode and interpret places wherever I go, whether professionally or personally. I use many of the same skills of observation, attunement, and communication as a therapist. I feel fortunate to be able to connect these disciplines in the service of others. 

Kate Papacosma, LMSW, earned a Master of Social Work from the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service; a Master of Arts in Landscape- and Urban History from the Bard Graduate Center; and a Bachelor of Arts in History and English and American Literature from Bowdoin College.
