Anya Katz

Clinic Therapist, Gender & Family Project

Anya Katz (they/he) identifies as a white, nonbinary, transmasculine person who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Since graduating from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, Anya’s primary clinical focus has been with queer and TGNCNB populations.

Within their work, Anya is committed to providing room for a wide range of emotion and affect as well as creative space to explore dreams and possibilities around identity. Anya approaches their practice from liberatory, anti-oppressive, and psychodynamic perspectives. They see therapy as an opportunity to recreate narratives of our pasts, presents, and futures in ways that honor rage, frustration, joy, and desire, while making space for us to fully comprehend and resist the stories that have both been told about us and to us.

In addition to being a therapist, Anya loves to play soccer, draw, and lie down next to bodies of water with their dog, Babette.
