Karen Carlucci is a licensed Psychotherapist and Professional Coach in NYC specialising in helping people through the unexpected. Since losing her fiancé suddenly on September 11th, she has been working on strengthening her own resiliency both personally and professionally through writing, speaking and connecting with others. In addition to a BA in Human Resources and an MSW from New York University’s School of Social Work, she possesses certificates in Training and Organisational Development and Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. She serves on the Advisory Board for Aircraft Casualty Emotional Support Services (ACCESS) and has been an adjunct instructor of Short-Term Therapies and Crisis Intervention at NYU’s Silver School of Social Work.
Her work has primarily been focused in the areas of mental health/mental illness, addiction, life transitions and professional development, in both direct practice and as a supervisor/manager/director. She maintains a private psychotherapy and coaching practice in Manhattan in which her mission is supporting adults through periods of transition, helping to manage any symptoms of depression and anxiety while exploring practical steps to achieve balance, a sense of control, and a place of comfort. The models of therapy she applies are strength-based and solution-focused, drawing from cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing and other psychodynamic approaches.
She has had the opportunity to bridge her clinical skills with the application of technology. This came to fruition when she managed a NYC-based behavioral health information/referral and crisis intervention 24/7 contact centre, followed by providing training and operations support for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and then while facilitating outreach and relationship development for a health simulation company. She is also an editorial board member for the Psychreg Journal of Psychology.
