Under Clinical Supervision
Tanya Fridland, Licensed Master Social Worker, 116659 is practicing under the supervision of Amanda Laukant (New York, LCSW, 89101) at Resilience Lab.
Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.
What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?
Formerly an attorney, I opted to leave the field of law so I could serve my clients in a more holistic way. My own experience with ADHD inspired me to help others feel better about themselves, improve their functioning, and structure their lives in a way that makes room for their neurodiversity. These experiences, along with becoming a mother, led to my passion for helping clients decide on and weather life transitions.
What is your style/approach to therapy?
My mission is to empower people with ADHD and those with professional struggles to live their most meaningful lives – lives based on their understanding of who they are and how to live in the world in a way that feels satisfying to them. That’s why I specialize in ADHD, career burnout or change, and difficult life transitions. These emotional struggles can take a physical toll on clients, as well as lead to anxiety and depression, and my goal is to provide both short and long-term solutions to address these concerns. Formerly an attorney, I opted to leave the field of law so I could serve my clients in a more holistic way. I’m trained in a wide variety of therapy approaches, but we’ll decide together what’s best for your needs. We will identify your priorities and examine areas of dysfunction–emotional, physical, environmental, or other–before coming up with a plan to help you live your best life. Whether you’re struggling with a new chapter, juggling competing demands, or dealing with “bad brain days," you are capable of finding peace and contentment.
What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?
Empathy: As a clinician, I approach each client from a supportive perspective. I believe everyone is trying their best. We begin our path to growth by forgiving and having compassion for ourselves. Non-judgment: I believe in creating a non-judgmental space, both for who you are and how you interact with your environment. I’m interested in seeing the pile of laundry, the sink full of dishes, and the mail you’ve been avoiding for months. Together, we’ll work on accepting all of your parts and fostering grace and understanding for your whole being. Only when we approach problems from a space of non-judgment and solution-focused thinking can we move forward with long-lasting solutions. Skill-building and resilience: Many of my clients are trying to grow against the backdrop of unsupportive people and traumatizing environments. Half the therapy battle is just addressing past or ongoing traumas that others have inflicted on you. My goal is to equip my clients with the skills they need to weather these storms.
