Zuania Capó, MHC-LP
Integrative Psychotherapist, Editor & Writer
Zuania is a compassionate Licensed Associate Mental Health Counselor in New York and New Jersey. As a neurodivergent-affirming mental health advocate, she is passionate about supporting individuals in their journey to improve their lives and relationship dynamics while fostering self-awareness and respecting other individuals' autonomy.
She works collaboratively with clients to reconnect, heal, and regain a sense of empowerment through integrative, person-centered, spiritually sensitive, and trauma- and multicultural-informed approaches. Specializing in neurodiversity-related challenges (ADHD, ASD, SPD), perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, parenting mental health, and obsessive-compulsive tendencies, she's particularly interested in the interplay of neurodiversity and developmental variations in relation to self-regulation, self-efficacy, and self-perception.
As a mental health therapist and coach, Zuania extends her support to moms-to-be, new moms, dads, and families seeking emotional guidance and resources to navigate the challenges associated with pregnancy, parenting adjustments, fertility struggles, and loss.
Fluent in both English and Spanish, she earned her Master’s Degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University (NYU). Currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at Regent University (RU), with a focus on marriage and family studies, she actively contributes to the Families and Children Experiencing Success (FACES) Lab at NYU. Here, she investigates innovative interventions that reduce the burden and enhance the flourishing of youth with attention and behavioral challenges and their families.
