Amy Gottheimer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Midtown, Manhattan who specializes in trauma, including domestic violence, sexual trauma, complex trauma, and single-incident trauma. She also specializes in life transitions, anxiety, depression, professional identity development, and working with members of the LGBTQIA community as well as individuals in non-traditional relationships.
Amy strives to create a safe and warm space where clients feel comfortable sharing their most inner thoughts. She takes the time to get to know her clients before developing an individualized treatment plan that takes into account their needs and goals. She utilizes a number of different tools and treatment modalities, including music, art, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), mindfulness practices, and Supportive Therapy. Amy fosters a collaborative, caring, and comfortable relationship with clients. Her sessions are client-led, and she never pushes them to talk about something until they are ready.
Amy believes everyone deserves to heal and grow, and she is there to support them on their journey. Before starting her private practice, she worked at the Center for Urban Community Services for a decade. Her office is conveniently located next to the 33rd Street subway station.
