Ofer Ziv, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Buffalo NY
My name is Ofer Ziv and I'm an EMDR Certified psychotherapist and clinical counselor based in Buffalo, NY. I offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) as part of my eclectic and integrated approach to therapy. I believe long-lasting healing needs to occur in our body as well as in our minds, and I am trained in Natural Processing as part of my somatic psychotherapy approach. KAP is a powerful tool that helps create shifts in our conscious awareness, and helps unlock areas we might feel stuck in. Through integrating thoughts awareness and emotional tolerance, we can change our behaviors and shift our limiting beliefs. I will help you gain awareness of the underlying issues that are causing disconnection in your life, and work to resolve and overcome them. We start by taking comprehensive history of the difficult areas in your life that you'd like to change. We'll explore the roots of your pattern formation, and increase awareness of how those impact your life currently. You will learn skills to challenge and change your thoughts, tolerate difficult emotions through the practice of mindfulness, and develop various ways to cope with external disruptions. You will discover new freedom in being with your emotions, and become less controlled by your feelings. We'll explore specialized modalities such as EMDR, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy, and Natural Processing, and how those might benefit your healing journey. You will learn to find inner calm even in activating situations, and unlock your natural ability to heal from within.
