Monica Roldan, LCSW
Clinical Director at Safe House

I am a licensed psychotherapist in New York and New Jersey. In my career, I have been always focused my efforts on working with women, specifically Latina women survivors of gender based violence, trauma, rape, childhood abuse, prostitution, and trafficking. I am an expert on issues regarding mental health and immigrant struggles and have a deep understanding of the migration process, and its unique stressors. When working with immigrant patients in particular, I am mindful that migration from a country to another has lasting psychological and social effects on an individual’s identity, relationships and society. I also analyze the transgenerational implications of this experience. I am a native Spanish speaker from Colombia and hold a psychology degree from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, and a master’s degree in social work (MSW) from New York University (NYU).
