Gerardo Sorkin

With over 20 years of experience in psychotherapy and psycho-education, Gerardo brings a unique perspective to Oasis. He grew up in a small farming community in Argentina, and pursued Bachelors and Masters degrees in Psychology from the National University of Córdoba. After traveling the world for a few years, Gerardo decided to settle in New York City and earned a Masters degree in Social Work from Yeshiva University. Gerardo has worked in a multitude of communities, and has helped individuals, couples, families and groups in both Spanish and English.

In his free time, Gerardo likes to spend time with his 15-year old twins, Samuel and Clara. When he’s not biking around New Haven or barbecuing for his family, he can be found dancing Tango, an activity in which he has woven several Oasis stress-management techniques. As a father, psycho-therapist, and Oasis practitioner, he is ready to help all those who are overwhelmed find more effective ways of managing their stress.

Oasis delivers simple strategies people, teams, and organizations use to adapt in a complex world that is ever-changing and increasingly reliant on technology. As humans, learning how to give our brains time to reboot to handle the demands of work and life is essential. Oasis increases our awareness of this usually unconscious process with renewed energy and a path forward to change.” – Jean Stetz-Puchalski, Individual Differences at Work
