By NYU Silver Communications OfficeFeb 4, 2021
Through a partnership with NYU Silver, NYU Counseling and Wellness has hired Dr. Tiffany Llewellyn, an accomplished Certified Licensed Clinical Social Worker, to provide clinical counseling services primarily to social work students. Dr. Llewellyn’s role is a direct result of a proposal submitted by the Socioemotional Support for Students of Color Work Group as part of Silver’s Action Against Racism agenda as well as from ongoing conversations with the School’s Rockland and Westchester campus students. While based at NYU Counseling and Wellness at the Washington Square campus, Dr. Llewellyn will serve students at all three New York campuses.
Dr. Llewellyn said, “I am excited for this opportunity to join NYU Counseling and Wellness with a focus and emphasis on working with NYU Silver students. What makes my role incredibly special is knowing students’ voices, advocacy, and commitment to their well-being made it possible.”
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) with a depth and range of experience in university settings, Dr. Llewellyn previously worked as a Clinical Social Worker and Coordinator of Services for First Generation/Limited Income students at John Hopkins University Counseling Center and as a Clinical Instructor at Yale University. In addition, she has extensive community mental health experience working with juvenile offenders, children and adolescents with severe psychiatric needs, low income communities, trauma survivors, emerging adolescents and medical social work. She also owns and operates a private practice where she serves a diverse population of clients. She earned her DSW from the University of Southern California, MSW from Hunter College, and BS in Social Work and AS in Liberal Arts with a minor in Psychology from Medgar Evers College.
“Foundational to my work,” said Dr. Llewellyn, “is a commitment and passion for racial and social justice, liberation of oppressed and marginalized populations, and advancing diversity and inclusion in all spaces. Equity in mental health is my non-negotiable, so my clinical style incorporates narrative therapy through an ecological, cross-cultural, interpersonal, and multicultural lens. It is necessary to add that treatment is person-centered and flexibility in approaches helps me meet the needs of clients.
