Our Therapeutic Approaches

Our expert therapists in New York City offer an inviting space where individuals, couples, families, and groups can come together to work towards healing and growth. We embrace a holistic approach to wellness, offering a variety of therapy formats to suit your individual needs, all grounded in evidence-based methodologies backed by a wealth of research. Some of our most common approaches include:
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Through DBT, you’ll learn to manage your emotions more effectively, fostering relationships that are more rewarding and a life that is more fulfilling.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Children (DBT-C): Tailored specifically for children, this approach uses the DBT framework to help pre-adolescents learn to manage their emotions effectively and build strong relationships from an early age. 
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This transformative approach helps you identify and change negative thought patterns, empowering you to take more positive and proactive steps in your life.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy- Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE): In DBT-PE, clients first establish safety and coping skills with their therapist before integrating standard DBT practices and focusing on processing trauma-related memories and beliefs.
  • Gottman Method Couples Therapy:The Gottman Method is a couples therapy approach that focuses on enhancing emotional connection, encouraging mutual respect, and creating shared meaning within relationships through interventions and skill-building exercises.


  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): This innovative therapy facilitates the healing of trauma and distressing life experiences, enabling you to move forward with strength and serenity.
  • (PEERS Therapy) Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills: Designed to support social skills development, PEERS therapy is especially beneficial in nurturing interpersonal relationships and building a fulfilling social life.
  • Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART): Focused on relieving psychological distress, helping you find relief and resolve troubling memories in a short span of time.
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT):EFT is based on the concept that the body functions as an energy circuit, where stressors can interrupt this flow, resulting in negative emotions and pain.
  • Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT):

    IRT aims to transform conflicts within relationships into opportunities for healing and growth, by fostering understanding and connection between partners.

Relationship Therapy In New York City

We are human and built to connect to others. Yet so many of us feel unconnected and lonely, struggle with lack of intimate relationships or feel unfulfilled with the relationships we have.

Family Therapy & Counseling NYC

It’s our source of love, strength, and connection. When one member is struggling, it affects everyone, and in bustling New York City, it’s not uncommon for families to feel misunderstood and disconnected.
