Professional statement

Dr. Dayana Jiménez is a bilingual (English/Spanish) clinical psychologist in Midtown, Manhattan. She provides expert support to a wide-ranging clientele, particularly around major life transitions, when emotions run high, anxious thoughts take over, and loving relationships become contentious. Dr. Jiménez welcomes individuals, families, and couples to her practice, helping each client to reach a greater sense of balance during times of change.

Dr. Jiménez utilizes a skill-based and solution-focused approach, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). She enjoys supporting parents to help them gain confidence in their parenting, build on the strength of their partner bond, and equip them with the practical daily skills for a more peaceful home. Dr. Jiménez is also highly skilled at working with children and adolescents, looking at the family system as a whole to problem-solve around separation anxiety, school issues, and behavioral challenges.

Dr. Jiménez has years of experience working in the school settings, as well as at New York City's top hospitals, allowing her to connect readily with clients facing challenging times. She received her doctorate from NYU, and is excited to lend her expertise in skill-based therapies to clients across the lifespan.


Message to clients

Thank you for taking the time to learn about my practice. Over the years I have been able to help individuals, families and couples develop skills to manage emotionally stressful situations. I have been able to provide a safe space for clients to express thoughts and feelings without experiencing judgements. It is challenging to learn new ways of managing conflict or stress and refrain from repeating behaviors that are not helpful. The goal of our time together would be to develop helpful new skills to help decrease feeling of distress and create the life you deserve.
