Senior Social Worker
Leah Moroge is a licensed clinical social worker and psychodynamically trained psychotherapist. She obtained her Master’s Degree in Social Work from New York University and has completed post-graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy through the Psychoanalytic Association of New York, which is affiliated with NYU Langone. She is currently the Senior Social Worker for the Bellevue Program for Survivors of Torture where she conducts intakes with clients, provides trauma-informed psychotherapy, and supervises PSOT’s social work, social services, and intake coordinator staff.
Leah is passionate about human rights advocacy and throughout her career has provided mental health support for people who have survived torture, forced migration, armed conflict, and human rights abuses. For several years, she provided pro-bono psychological evaluations for survivors of torture and authored affidavits in support of applications for immigration relief through HealthRight International.
Prior to joining PSOT, Leah worked inpatient and outpatient at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center where she provided supportive counseling, facilitated support groups for patients and caregivers, and worked with the Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities Service to develop programs. In addition, she’s worked at adult outpatient mental health clinics. She currently maintains a private psychotherapy practice based in New York.
Leah’s clinical practice is eclectic and is informed by her breadth of experience throughout various medical, mental health, and human rights settings. She provides care through a warm, non-judgmental, holistic, collaborative, and anti-oppressive lens. She considers her deep appreciation for the arts and time spent throughout the United States, Europe, South America, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and the SWANA (Southwest Asia & North Africa) region as valuable dimensions of her work.
