Helene Omansky, LCSW
 

I am passionate about helping individuals discover easily accessible tools from within, to establish sustainable, healthy and meaningful coping skills. I draw upon years of working with families, borrowing from teachings in meditation and mindfulness. Together we can explore how to detach from what is not contributing to our wellbeing. I enjoy helping others approach anxiety and stress with curiosity and kindness rather than dread and heaviness. I embrace our work together and consider it an honor to join you on this journey. 

I have been a Clinical Social Worker since 1994, LCSW since 2002 and working in pediatrics since 1999. My experience includes clinical social work in healthcare ~ helping individuals and families cope with medical diagnoses, treatment and navigating through their experience ~ as well as working more dynamically with children/adolescents and families confronting transitional or situational stressors around life events, peers, academics, among other areas.

I look forward to meeting you.
