Ammari Edwards, LMSW

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker, with experience providing psychotherapy services in a wide variety of clinical settings.

I was was born and raised in Massachusetts and I am very familiar with Brooklyn, NY, having attended second grade here and visiting my late grandparents and cousins during many summer vacations. I acquired my undergraduate degree at Framingham State University studying Sociology and Psychology. I earned my MSW while attending NYU’s Silver School of Social Work.

In addition to my work as a psychotherapist, I have worked as a notetaker for classmates with learning disabilities and as a tutor for students learning Sociology at FSU. I have served 1700 hours, over 10 months, in an underserved school as a City Year Boston Americorps member and I was initiated into Phi Alpha Delta Honor Society and began constructing homes for those in need with Americorps Habitat for Humanity NYC. I am very passionate about social justice and in 2015 and 2016, I began activism at social justice rally’s in Brooklyn, New York, as well as in Washington, DC’s Million Man March for Black lives after a stream of videotaped police brutality.

My therapeutic approach is passionate, open minded, and demonstrates empathy while helping any person in need. I am an avid advocate for self-care and I value the exploration of how an individual’s spirituality and culture may impact their mental health and coping.
