Provider Spotlight: Marcia Luskin; LMHC; CRC

August 16, 2018

With over 40 years of experience, Marcia Luskin is a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and nationally Certified Rehabilitation Counselor(CRC).  Her theory is simple, everyone has different needs, so why should all treatment plans be the same?  She always poses a question to her clients at intake, “If you woke up tomorrow and therapy “worked”, what would change in your life?” Her therapeutic services are individually tailored and always respectful of the clients clinical pace..

After successfully completing a 3 year postgraduate Gestalt therapy program, she developed her clinical approach with an emphasis on creativity, grounding and breath work.  She suggests journaling and writing exercises to improve communication and acknowledge feelings.   In her personal life, yoga and meditation are a daily part of her routine.

Luskin specializes in addiction, depression, anxiety and relationship work.  She sees individuals and couples.  Her clients are typically very creative individuals, working in the arts or as teachers.  In addition, Luskin has devoted her career as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor in  working with individuals who have disabilities.  In this work, she helps to plan for vocational, occupational and educational “blueprints”.  She uses this skill to assist her clients in private practice as well.  Luskin also specializes in working with individuals who have had bariatric surgery or are considering this surgical intervention for weight loss.  After undergoing weight loss surgery 14 years ago, she understands the struggles which individuals may face, such as body image, family or work relationships.

Luskin is happily married, enjoys music and theater.  She is a native New Yorker and as such is keenly aware of the role that NYC can play in our lives in terms of its environment, fast pace and stress.

If you are depressed, anxious or simply wish to change your outlook, you can benefit from the therapy that Marcia can provide.
