Professional statement

Dr. Carolyn AlRoy is a Licensed Psychologist and Coach  located in New York, NY. Dr. AlRoy has over twenty years of experience working with clients, many of whom want to find a way to make life less stagnant. Her clients find themselves stuck in relationships that are no longer meaningful, and sometimes have toxic elements that are emotionally draining. She also works with clients whose careers feel like they aren’t going anywhere, despite attempts to move upwards. This can lead to feelings of disappointment, frustration, anger, or even loneliness. Lastly, Dr. AlRoy helps clients whose anxiety or alcohol use interferes with healthy living habits.

Dr. AlRoy’s vast amount of experience, additional training, and certifications position her to support clients of different backgrounds, personalities, and mental health goals. She utilizes the Gottman Method when working with couples, teaching them to value their emotions and to open up to their partners about their needs. Couples learn how to reduce conflicts and instead grow their bonds with one another. Dr. AlRoy also uses cognitive behavioral methods for clients who suffer from anxiety. This type of therapy encourages clients to slow down their thoughts and avoid harmful self-criticisms that can lead to overwhelming emotions. She is a psychodynamic therapist who relies on a strong rapport with her clients to help them examine the ways they relate to other people.

Dr. AlRoy earned a PsyD from Pace University. She is an accredited Coach, certified in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and certified in the Hogan Assessment. She’s a researcher and a media psychologist who offers the psychological viewpoint for many news publications. She is passionate about mentoring young female psychologists and growing the mental health field to be more inclusive.
