Claire Nitze, MA, LMSW

Psychotherapist

I am a Brooklyn-based mother of three, a former teacher, and a devoted learning support advocate who recently shifted from clinic-based psychotherapy to private practice with individuals.  I received my undergraduate degree from Duke University, an MA in Humanities and Social Thought from NYU, and an MS from Columbia University School of Social Work. My post-graduate training includes coursework in family systems theory, trauma-based experiential work with Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk from the Trauma Research Foundation at Boston University School of Medicine, and somatic experiential psychotherapeutic training in the Hakomi Method. In addition, I have facilitated workshops with Dr. Mark Brackett, Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. I am also a certified Pilates instructor who appreciates the connection between wellness of mind and body. Apart from my affiliations, I am a person who runs deep, and I bring to my work with clients an experienced, thoughtful, nuanced, and compassionate lens.
