Professional statement

Eliza Jaquez is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with an office in Soho Manhattan. Eliza welcomes adults navigating life transitions, relationship challenges, self esteem issues, anxiety and depression into her practice. She also helps individuals understand the different forms of trauma they may have endured.

Eliza utilizes a primarily insight-oriented approach to help clients develop awareness of self-defeating patterns, overcome obstacles to success, and become more self-confident. She strives to work collaboratively with clients by creating an open, safe space, where they are free to explore thoughts and feelings in new ways.

With specialized training in child and adolescent therapy, Eliza is passionate about working collaboratively with children and teenagers to strengthen their relationships with their families. She draws upon a combination of play therapy and traditional talk therapy. She is an expert in supporting children and adolescents through a wide range of challenges including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and behavioral issues. She works closely with each child’s parents to address family challenges and enact positive change.

Message to clients

The time you invest in understanding your mind and emotions can unlock change. With thoughtfulness and curiosity, you will work through challenges interfering with your well-being. You'll form awareness into patterns and ways past events inform your present. The knowledge gained will empower you to make choices that feel healthier and more fulfilling. By getting to the bottom of what feels difficult today, you can start long lasting changes.

I trained at NYU and specialize in helping adults in their 20s and 30s facing anxiety, self esteem issues, depression, life transitions and relationship struggles. I trained at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research in Child/Adolescent Therapy. I partner with parents/caretakers to improve the relationship with their child or teen.

Self discovery, growth, or healing are achievable. By considering therapy, you have taken the first steps towards change. To speak about your goals and see if I'd be a good fit for your needs, I welcome calls for a consultation.
