About Ilena
I am Ilena Osma, founder and owner of Therapy In NYC.  I'm a New York State accredited Psychotherapist specializing in individual therapy to adults, young adults, and families. I hold a license in Clinical Social Work (LCSW) and received a Masters in Social Work from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. 
My treatment modality is psychodynamic-oriented which draws attention to unconscious thoughts and feelings, as well as how our past experiences affect our present day functioning especially with our current relationships. My postgraduate training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps to find healthier ways of perceiving our selves, others, and circumstances. 
Behavioral interventions involve teaching skills needed for effective coping, communication, self-care, and symptom relief. 


Personal Bio: I live in New York City with my husband of 30 years and our cat named Lilly. I have two adult children, and a son in law, all of whom I'm very proud of. In my spare time, I like to read, spend time with friends, and cook healthy meals.
