Siena Froment is a fourth year student at the New York University Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a minor in child and adolescent mental health studies. She was born and raised in Fort Greene, Brooklyn and is interested in the relation between community and mental well-being as it is impacted, defined and experienced differently due to structural violence, systems of oppression and interacting clusters of culture, language and generations.
At Gallatin, she approaches psychology with a concentration in Techno-Isolation, Social Suffering and Well-Being while infusing aspects of collective memory and literary history, anthropology and sociology, play and creativity, as well as Buddhism and mindfulness. She is interested in therapeutic community outreach, community psychoanalysis and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health.
Siena seeks to approach therapy with a psychoanalytic, narrative and relational perspective with children, their families, adults and couples. She is passionate about better understanding how meaning is uncovered in different healing modalities, while focusing on art, trauma-informed clinical practice and spirituality.
