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 also offer the option of at home individually curated KAP sessions which allow clients the opportunity to experience ketamine in the comfort and security of their own home.
I've been a social worker for over 20 years now. 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 recently completed a yearlong psychedelic assisted therapy program and am very excited to offer ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP) and integration services 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.
