Claudia Chika, LMSW

Licensed Master Social Worker
New York NY
I primarily work with clients one on one through telehealth. However, I offer in person sessions for Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) in two office locations including mid-town Manhattan, and Irvington, NY.
I've been a social worker for over 20 years now. Even prior to starting my formal education I was working as an advocate. I've been very fortunate to have worked in a variety of fields including women's rights, healthcare accessibility, tenant rights, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, as well as politics and union organizing just to name a few. My clinical work developed from my intuitive coaching and teaching practice which I started while living in Seattle. I'm now in private practice in my native NY seeing individual clients interested in ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP). I'm currently immersed in a psychedelic assisted therapy program and am very excited to offer psychedelic integration services and KAP as part of my practice. Helping my clients get relief from their suffering and learn how to trust themselves, increase their self-awareness & intuition, and become more confident and joyful is my passion. I am very grateful and feel incredibly privileged to be doing this work.
