Kim Schneiderman, LCSW, is a Certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) psychotherapist who views every life as a sacred story that is open to interpretation, especially one’s own. As a holistic psychotherapist, seasoned writer, and “deep soul diver,” Kim Schneiderman, LCSW, helps clients befriend and unburden different parts of themselves that are no longer serving them, so that they can create a life that both honors and expresses their deeper needs, values, and gifts in their personal and professional relationships.
Kim likes to think of herself as a spiritual midwife of sorts, helping clients navigate the narrow bridge of difficult life transitions and give birth to a more fulfilled version of themselves. She works with adults in the following areas:
- Sensitivity, self-trust, and authentic self-expression
- Life transitions/ stages of life issues
- Relationship issues
- Career direction issues and work/life balance
- Dating and loneliness
- Religious identity issues
- Grief, loss, and illness
- Creative blocks
- LGBTQ related issues
In addition to IFS, Kim uses a variety of tools including the Enneagram, guided imagery, writing exercises, Focusing, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), meditation, mindfulness, and Kabbalah. Having been exposed to the wisdom of various faith traditions and spiritual practices, she is sensitive to the complex set of issues confronting individuals struggling to find a balance between religious/spiritual beliefs and personal integrity, as well as autonomy and the desire to remain connected to family/community.
Kim received her MSW at the University of Maryland, holds a certificate in Social Work and Spiritual Care from New York University (where she also guest-lectured) and completed the year-long certificate program with the Association of Spirituality and Psychotherapy (ASP). She is a regular presenter in PSI’s Spiritually Informed Psychotherapies certificate program.
Kim is a New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
