Aida Diallo, MSW, LISW

Clinical Therapist

Fluent in Wolof and French

I am a licensed Independent Social Worker with nine years of experience in the mental health field. I am a graduate of the city college of New York with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology, and a master's degree in social work from New York University.

As a client centered therapist, I aim to create a safe space where you can verbalize, process, be truly heard and empowered while becoming the best version of yourself. My experience in the mental health field is comprised of advocacy for children in the foster care system, clinical services to chronically homeless individuals, management services for new immigrants diagnosed with chronic medical conditions, and outpatient psychotherapy services. I have worked with many different populations including adolescents, young adults, adults, and families.

On a personal note, I immigrated from Senegal as a teenager and grew up in New York city. I experienced first-hand how major life changes, acculturation issues, learning a new language, leaving friends and family behind, puberty, and overall life adjustments can become stressors without adaptable coping skills and support. These personal experiences continue to shape me and encourages me to always create a space where people's stories are truly heard, their concerns processed and solutions to stress management explored and implemented.

My therapeutic techniques are essentially comprised of cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT and solution-focused therapy. I am also training in EMDR and will have my certification soon. With these techniques, client's participation is paramount. Self-exploration, curiosity, participation, cooperation, self-determination, practice, research, open-mindedness, and commitment are key factors to making therapy successful. I am hopeful that in establishing a great therapeutic relationship with you these factors can be taken into consideration. I look forward to meeting and to supporting you in your journey!
