Her training at Hunter College’s Silberman School of Social Work instilled an unwavering awareness in her practice of how social issues and patterns of systemic oppression affect people of all ages.

Approach

Casey’s approach is anchored in an abiding fascination with the human experience, drawing from a variety of influences including psychodynamic theory, attachment theory, cognitive psychology, Buddhist meditation practices, yoga, and the arts.

She is deeply interested in the body and it’s innate ability to move toward healing and resilience. Casey’s research interests include the growing fields of somatic therapies for healing trauma, polyvagal theory, psychedelic-assisted therapy, and nature therapy. Casey considers each patient holistically, working with all aspects of lifestyle to support change, and striving to communicate in simple terms about big, complex subjects in the vein of thinkers who inspire her like Bessel Van der Kolk, Brene Brown, and Tara Brach.
