The New Westfield Location + Community Events
Lukin Center for Psychotherapy was founded in 2014 by Dr. Konstantin Lukin and Dr. Paula Yanes-Lukin. The first office was located in Hoboken and the practice has since expanded to six cities including Hoboken, Jersey City, Montclair, Ridgewood, Englewood, and the most recent addition — Westfield.
“We opened the doors to our newest location in Westfield in February this year and we are excited to become a part of such a dynamic community,” Dr. Lukin told Montclair Girl. “We have started to do presentations and discussions at local community events to help educate the community on mental health issues. We recently collaborated with Montclair’s Health department and engaged in a Facebook live event, which allowed us to share and discuss mental health topics.”
Community events are typically focused on topics of interest to local residents like creative arts and diversity, two things that are close to the hearts of the team at Lukin Center because of their importance in mental health. Clinicians from the Lukin Center will be attending an upcoming Town Hall meeting in Montclair.
As one of the largest psychotherapy practices in Northern New Jersey, Lukin Center provides the latest in evidence-based, heavily researched methodologies, so patients can put science on their side and work toward the positive change they want.
The Team at Lukin Center
As a family-owned practice, the team at Lukin Center takes pride in providing a comfortable and friendly atmosphere in each of its offices so each patient feels at home.
“I love my job because we get to work with people every day who are trying to better their lives,” Dr. Lukin shared. “It is so encouraging to see people prioritize their mental health more than ever before. We have noticed that often conversations around mental health are way less stigmatized and the questions have become when and how to take better care of your mental health not if.”
Mental health experts Dr. Konstantin Lukin, Ph.D., and Dr. Paula Yanes-Lukin Ph.D. are at the Lukin Center helm, as Clinical Director and Director of Training + Supervision, respectively. The team also includes Ami P. Kang, LCSW, the Creative Director and Assistant Director of Couples Counseling Program; Timothy Meyer, LCSW who is the Assistant Clinical Director; the Assistant Director of Child + Adolescent Program is Kristen Estrella, LCSW; and Dr. Seth Mandel, MD oversees medication management as the Medical Director and a practicing psychiatrist.
Maram Barakat, MA, is the Social Media Manager for Lukin Center and oversees the community engagement online while Gabrielle Milani, MPH, operates as the Senior Outreach Manager, ensuring that Lukin Center is doing everything it can to contribute to the mental health of the community.
