Lillyana Morales, LMHC, LPC, CCTP

Clinical Director and Founder

My name is Lillyana, and I look forward to accompanying you on your journey towards wellness. I am a multi-racial Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional in New York and Connecticut. Additionally, I hold out of state tele-health registration and am able to work with clients who reside in Florida. I received my bachelor's degree in Studio Art and Psychology, my master’s in Mental Health Counseling at CUNY Brooklyn College, and I have been working with clients since 2017. 

Prior to working in private practice, I worked for Henry Street Settlement's Community Consultation Center providing individual, family, and group therapy to children, teens, and adults. Through my time in the clinic setting, I was able to support my clients through various stressors: anxiety, mood disorders, trauma and c-ptsd, domestic violence, pmad, interpersonal conflict, sexuality and gender identity, self esteem, disordered eating, and personality disorders.

My private practice is primarily tele-health, and female identifying/women's focused. We are LGBTQIA+ affirming and trauma informed. My aim is to provide you with a warm, empathic, nonjudgmental, and supportive environment where you can feel safe to express yourself and heal. I use an integrative therapeutic approach including dialectical behavioral, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, forward facing trauma, EMDR, and equine assisted therapy among other modalities that I believe will be best tailored to your needs. Additionally, I place an emphasis on self-care and self-expression through creative outlets.

Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a mental health professional can make things better. I care about your well-being and provide you with the tools you need in order to seize the day, recognize your strengths, process your experiences and improve your day-to-day life.
