Larisa Kohen, LMSW
Larisa Kohen is a social worker experienced in providing therapeutic services for New Yorkers of diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds experiencing emotional, behavioral and cognitive challenges. She is particularly interested in working with individuals who experience anxiety, and developed a deep appreciation for the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), incorporating the modality into her practice after completing training at the Beck Institute in utilizing CBT for Anxiety Disorders.
After earning her Master’s degree in Social Work from Yeshiva University in 2008, Larisa advanced her training under the supervision of Noah Clyman, founder & director of NYC Cognitive Therapy, as well as through coursework in Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy (TBCT) with Irismar de Oliveira.
A long-time resident of New York City, Larisa is as fluent in Russian as she is in English, and believes that her bilingual skills make her effective in working with the City’s ethnically diverse population.
