Our Supervisor & Counselor : Mary Ng-Tedjasukmana
Mary Ng-Tedjasukmana is a passionate Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW,) Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist (family focused,) and Certified Professional Life Coach who currently works in the New York and New Jersey areas. Her vast education and experience working in mental health includes experience organizing community-wide approaches to mental health, one-on-one therapy with an interpersonal approach, and workshop-based mental health programs. She is a graduate of NYU’s School of Social work, holding a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work. Mary deeply understands the challenges present in trauma therapy and has devoted her life to helping those who suffer from the negative after effects of traumatic events.
Mary has served on the Board of Directors for the New York Coalition for Asian American Mental Health for over 5 years, helping to organize systems of quality mental health for the Asian American communities of New York and New Jersey. Her fluency in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Taishanese has allowed her to provide unique care to members of her community in languages they are most comfortable with. This approach to therapy allows for the focus to be on healing and the overcoming of personal obstacles instead of the potential challenges of communicating nuance in a secondary language.
