Khrystyna Misyuk, LMHC
Khrystyna holds a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University. During her studies, she worked at the school's Dean Hope Center for Educational and Psychological Services where she received training in conducting clinical intakes as well as career and multicultural counseling for new clients. As part of her training she additionally worked in a private practice setting specializing in adults dealing with anxiety and mood disorders.
Khrystyna's clinical interests include working with adults and children dealing with anxiety, ADHD, and mood disorders. She also has a special interest in multicultural psychology and counseling which developed based upon her own immigration experience at a young age. She believes that cultural issues, such as immigration, acculturation, bilingualism, cultural identity, and cultural stigma greatly impact not only the individuals' state of mind, but also their views of mental health and access to services. She has a particular interest in working with clients from different, as well as mixed, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. In her work she aims to help clients integrate various parts of themselves, (race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, socioeconomic status), into one unique cultural identity.
Currently, Khrystyna also works at a private practice in downtown Manhattan counseling adults with ADHD, and mood related symptoms. She also provides services at the University Settlement Society of New York providing psychoeducational counseling services to an immigrant population, which includes presentations, workshops, and individual care of clients from various ethnic backgrounds.
Khrystyna is fluent in Ukrainian and Russian, and conducts psychotherapy in both of these languages.
