Patricia Mensa

Licensed Master Social Worker

Patricia sees clients in Brooklyn Heights and online. She uses mindfulness, CBT, and trauma-informed approaches to help pre-teens, teens, young adults, and adults with anxiety, depression, eating problems, low self-esteem, and interpersonal challenges using an intersectional and anti-racist lens.

Patricia’s goal as a clinician is to nurture a warm, collaborative and safe environment in which people feel confident in being their authentic selves. She takes pride in actively listening to experiences and appropriately validating feelings, while helping navigate challenges. Patricia believes that people are the architects of their lives, as they have had lived experiences before walking into her office. Her role as a clinician is to meet everyone where they may be and work together to address internal and external needs in a non-judgemental manner.

 

In her work, Patricia invites clients to make mistakes, explore their strengths, and build self-awareness to foster a sense of autonomy. She approaches her clients with gentleness and compassion in order to facilitate a brave space where they can have transparent conversations, process their emotions, and gain tangible tools they can use to cope in their daily lives.

Patricia earned her Master’s Degree from Fordham University and has worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, and specialized schools.
