What services does your practice offer?

Our team of clinicians offers psychotherapy sessions via a virtual platform. We offer individual, couples, family, and group therapy. Therapeutic fit is of the upmost importance to us. To prioritize this, we offer free phone consultations so clients can find the best therapist for them. Our therapists have a range of availability from early mornings to evenings.

What are your practice's specialties?

The NY City Psychotherapy team specializes in anxiety. Each clinician has their own approach to anxiety, incorporating techniques from various modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Somatic Therapy. We often utilize an eclectic approach to help clients better manage difficult or fearful thoughts and feel relief from physical symptoms of stress and anxiety.

Each of our clinicians also have their own individual specialties such as grief, trauma, somatic practice, Borderline Personality Disorder, and OCD. Their wide range of training and expertise can help you address a variety of concerns in therapy. Sessions will always be personally tailored to what you need so that the work feels authentic, productive, and meaningful.

Therapist's note

The practice is out of network with insurance. We offer income based sliding scale rates and support in pursuing out-of-network benefits reimbursement. We will submit out-of-network reimbursement claims on your behalf free of charge. We work with a HIPAA compliant program called Mentaya to do so.

Our practice website has a calculator to help you estimate costs. We also provide Superbill receipts for you to submit to your insurance for out-of-network reimbursement if you prefer to personally handle submissions. It is recommended you contact your insurance company in advance to inquire about out of network benefits for telehealth sessions, the reimbursement process, your deductible if you have one, and any limits you have on coverage and cost of sessions.
