Craig Haft

Craig Haft, MSW LCSW

Craig Haft is a licensed clinical social worker with a MSW degree from NYU and has been treating adolescents and adults struggling with mental health, addiction, relational and/or life transition issues for over 10 years. Craig believes in a mindful approach to psychotherapy that flows with the client’s present experience. He utilizes an eclectic blend of relational, cognitive-behavioral, body-centered, and emotionally-focused techniques within the spirit of mindful awareness. Whether working with individuals, couples, or groups, Craig looks to get to the core of symptoms, conflicts, and concerns in a compassionate, collaborative manner.

Craig is a certified Hakomi Therapist. Hakomi psychotherapy is both mindfulness-based and body-centered and seeks to support a person’s organic healing and growth by safely working with deep, core experiences, encouraging holistic integration of “lost parts”. Having completed trainings, seminars, and retreats with many leaders in the fields of mindfulness/meditation, yoga, energy psychology, and eastern medicine, Craig incorporates much from these philosophies/ practices in his work with clients. In addition, he offers highly applicable, concrete skills from the widely-used modalities of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Imago Couples Therapy.

Craig also brings to counseling his vast business experience, over 15 years, in corporate management and business consulting with a focus on human systems and teamwork. Craig received a BS degree in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University in 1982 as well as an MBA from the University of California at Berkeley in 1990.
