help you can trust.

New York City is exciting and vibrant but it also can be hectic, stressful and overwhelming. Every day we help clients just like you mediate stress and reach their full potential.

Our clients receive the tools and strategies to thrive along with a deeper understanding of the emotional undercurrents of their lives and relationships.

Individual Therapy

Whether you’re trying to improve your mood, change a behavior, or better navigate your emotions, we help make those goals a reality.

Couples Therapy

Navigating infidelity, addiction, co-parenting, communication, and intimacy, we help you create greater clarity and connection.

Family Therapy

We help families improve communication, resolve conflict, increase empathy, and create sustainable patterns/dynamics/tools.

Child and Adolescent Therapy

We help children and teens struggling with their challenges so they can develop life skills to flourish.


Engage with your therapist when you cannot be physically present. Miss fewer appointments and keep moving forward in your treatment.

“New York City is a community unlike any other. Our neighborhoods are diverse, our experiences are distinct, our beliefs are varied. Individually and collectively, we are full of strength, resilience, and determination. In the face of adversity or challenge, we rise to the occasion and triumph.

We know most New Yorkers experience a complex mix of success and stress in creating a life filled with meaning and purpose. At NYC Counseling, we are committed to realizing your fullest potential.

Our passion is to support you to not just survive but ultimately to thrive.”
