Chris Stevenson is a Licensed Master Social Worker based in New York City. He works with adults of all ages. Chris is particularly sensitive to attachment issues, in addition to anxiety and depression arising from living in a society that increasingly seems alienated and atomized. Chris' approach to therapy is integrative, with an emphasis on relational work and psychodynamic principles and application. It is also rooted in the idea that all of us are, in part, socially constructed individuals, even at the cognitive level. He offers a warm, non-judgmental, and non-authoritarian space where clients will identify the feelings and assumptions that generate the self-defeating patterns preventing them from experiencing joy and fulfillment in their lives.
