Tribeca Therapy is currently in a growth spurt, and as our practice expands, we’ve been eager to bring new therapists on board. Earlier this year, we welcomed both Jordan Conrad, LMSW, MPhil, and Liz Graham, LMSW as staff therapists. Even though Liz and Jordan have appeared on the blog previously in conversations with others on staff, we are excited to introduce both therapists officially:
Jordan Conrad, LMSW, MPhil, is a NYU-trained psychotherapist with a background in philosophy, including a Master’s of Philosophy from KU Leuven in Belgium and a Master’s of Science from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. He is also currently a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Bioethics at NYU. As Jordan and Matt recently discussed on the blog, Jordan sees the intersection of therapy and philosophy in how he gets to know the ways in which an individual patient’s desires, beliefs, emotions, and motivations fit together to form a style of thought or behavior. He first recognized he could provide direct and meaningful support in other people’s lives while teaching kids and teens with autism spectrum disorders. He also worked as a school counselor with high school students with severe educational and emotional needs, and at the Maimonides Medical Center where he ran groups on meditation, loss and bereavement, anxiety and interpersonal skills, and worked with patients in individual therapy.

Before beginning her therapeutic training, Liz Graham, LMSW, studied neuroscience, behavior and the convergence of the two. She received a Master’s degree from NYU, after studying psychology and neuroscience at Emory University. She also studied at the Marcus Autism Center, and was a fellow at the Mind and Life Institute, where she was exposed to the most cutting-edge brain research in the field. With this background, Liz not only takes a science-based approach to understanding behavior, but she also combines this with an appreciation for cultural and psychological factors, realizing that patients don’t live their lives in a vacuum. She has worked extensively with women and trauma, including trauma related to sexual violence, childhood sexual abuse, and domestic abuse. She also has helped mothers with pregnancy, childcare, birth, and raising kids, from newborns to toddlers, as well as supported them through miscarriages, difficult pregnancies and difficult births.
