Meet Our Therapists
Madhuri Jha, LCSW, MPH
We live in a complex world, and the journey to finding oneself while experiencing adversity can be very difficult. Many people come to therapy with the hope that they will find a way to learn how to navigate these challenges. As a clinician, I believe that humans all possess an inherent resilience that can guide us through adverse experiences.
I specialize in trauma-informed practice, and I utilize an evidence-based, person-centered, and socially conscious approach to psychotherapy that helps my clients learn ways to activate this existing resiliency. My work places a keen focus on the connection between our emotional wellness and our response to stress tolerance.
I identify as a woman of color and I apply critical race and intersectional theory lenses to my practice. I foster a therapeutic space that is safe to discuss all facets of how our identity is shaped, inclusive of race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, and the expression of oppression and privilege. I respect and incorporate your value systems into our work together.
Training and Education
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York State. I incorporate various modalities into my practice, which include CBT, psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theory, dialectical behavioral therapy, structural family therapy, harm reduction and mindfulness. I have theoretical training in intersectional theory, critical race theory, and environmental systems thinking. I offer bilingual therapy services in Spanish and English, and I have a proficient command of Hindi, which is my mother tongue. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, children and families.
I completed graduate education from New York University in both the fields of public health (MPH) and clinical social work (LCSW). I have experience working in psychiatric emergency, out-patient, mobile unit, and in-patient treatment levels. I am currently an adjunct lecturer at New York University and serve as the Director of the Manhattan Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team at the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services (CASES).
