Tanya Cole-Lesnick has been a licensed clinical social worker since 1995. She has extensive experience in both outpatient hospital mental health and private practice settings.
Tanya helps people to address issues related to anxiety, depression, relationships, careers, self-esteem, life transitions, day-to-day habits, and life satisfaction. She works with individuals—adults and adolescents, couples, families, and groups.
Her specialty is in creating a safe, shame-free environment for her clients to share the sacred, very personal, stories of their lives as they explore their own growth and healing. Her primary focus is in helping people to identify and move towards their best lives by getting clear about what does and does not serve them, what the lives they dream of look like, and making changes accordingly. Change, of course, can be challenging, and Tanya supports that process along the way to help her clients achieve success with the transitions they long for. Tanya customizes the work she does with her clients by exploring, through active questioning, what works best for each person.
Tanya received her master’s degree in social work from New York University.
