I am Edy Kupietzky, and I support young people and their families.
I am a licensed social worker with a specialty in chronic and acute childhood illness. I have spent years in pediatric oncology, childhood cancer survivorship, and health education. Working at a large academic cancer center, I assessed the needs of patients, examined long-term effects, and helped cancer survivors cope with psychological, emotional, and social concerns.
In my work as a school social worker, I served as a link between the child, school, and home, supporting students to achieve their most successful selves. I always advocate for the student and have expertise in helping parents navigate challenging school procedures for using IEPs and 504 plans.
My Advanced Clinical Practice with a concentration in health, mental health, and disabilities studies in social work elevated my understanding of the human experience. I want to help navigate various resources and provide emotional, psychological, and social support. Using techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychoeducation, mindfulness and relaxation, and coping strategies, we can work together to achieve your goals.
I am a life-long learner and have a particular interest in grief and loss. I am skilled in helping guide people through “Healing Milestones” to provide an optimistic future.
I believe we are all resilient, but young people have a special spark, and it is important to help them find their inner courage and self-esteem to let their flame shine bright.
I received my training through Columbia University, where I earned a Doctor of Public Health and Master of Public Health, concentrating in sociomedical sciences, health promotion, and disease prevention. At the School of Social Work, I received an MSW in Advanced Clinical Practice with a concentration in health, mental health, and disabilities. I am proud of my role as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, and loyal friend.
