About
Hadassah Luss

Pursuing Master of Social Work at Yeshiva University, Wurzweiler School of Social Work

As a practicum student, I believe that every person deserves the opportunity to thrive regardless of their challenges. I work with teenagers and adults who are experiencing challenges related to anxiety, anger, negative self-talk, histories of abuse, and disordered eating.

My goal is to provide my clients an atmosphere where they can feel supported, and understood and also to help them develop practical coping mechanisms to navigate struggles in their daily lives. 

Through genuine warmth and understanding, I work to create an environment for my clients that is grounded in cultural humility, acceptance, and unconditional support.

Qualifications & Trainings

  • Goal-Focused
    Goal-focused therapy lets you specify what you want to get out of therapy, allowing you and your therapist to develop a plan for getting there. Even if your goals for therapy are simply about having someone to talk to about difficult life circumstances or sorting out challenging thoughts and feelings, it is worthwhile for both you and your therapist to be clear on this. Goals also allow therapists to develop a plan that takes into account your resources and budget for therapy, ensuring we work within the financial and schedule limitations we need to. Therapists at our clinic are goal-focused and will help you both set goals, take steps towards helping you meet those goals, and continuously evaluate progress and your satisfaction with the direction of therapy.
  • Person-Centred
    At our practice, our therapists use a person-centered approach that is catered to you and designed around your specific needs, goals, and life context. We do not take a ‘rinse-and-repeat’ or protocol-driven approach to therapy. Rather, based on your goals for counselling, we will co-develop a specific treatment plan with you, drawing on what we know as therapists and what you know as the expert on your own life and history.
  • Evidence-Based
    Psychotherapy approaches that are considered evidence-based have been rigorously evaluated by researchers across many different studies and found to be effective in improving various psychological problems and mental health concerns. Pursuing approaches that are validated by research is an important step to ensuring that you receive a high-quality therapy plan and preventing harm that can sometimes occur when receiving treatments that are not evidence-based.
  • Cognitive-Behavioural Oriented
    Write Here Clinicians working at our practice primarily operate from a cognitive-behavioral theoretical orientation that places a strong emphasis on helping clients change their relationship to difficult thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Our clinic’s emphasis on cognitive-behavioural approaches means that you can expect the therapy you receive to be practical, logical and intuitive, and provide you with clear skills, strategies, and resources that can be used in your life.
