Sokhna Ndiaye, MFT Intern

•Currently accepting New Clients •

Sokhna Ndiaye is a graduate student at Long Island University. She is currently pursuing a
Master’s and Licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy. Sokhna graduated from Hunter College
in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
Sokhna is from Senegal, a country in West Africa and she is very passionate about helping
people live happier and stress-free lives. She grew up noticing the need for mental health
services in her community as well as recognizing the lack of resources and mental health
professionals in African communities in general. This drove her to seek the training necessary to
help her community. Sokhna fathomed the complexity of human interactions and family
dynamics, which spiked her interest in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.
Sokhna has experience working with people from different countries and cultural backgrounds.
She respects and appreciates diversity and understands that everybody is unique and has different
needs. She believes she has a lot to learn from clients and is ready to really listen and try to
understand where they are coming from. She will work collaboratively with clients, set realistic
goals, and guide them toward a successful outcome. Sokhna is trilingual and speaks Wolof and
French.
Sokhna uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and a
person-centered approach. She is interested in working with African immigrant families,
adolescents, young adults, and couples.
