Elizabeth Greene is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in FiDi in Manhattan who sees individual adults and teens as well as couples and families. She specializes in anxiety, depression, relationships, grief, trauma, including sexual abuse and domestic violence, substance use challenges, and insomnia. Many of Elizabeth’s clients are navigating challenges related to relationships, including those who are struggling to develop a significant relationship or considering breaking up or getting a divorce.
In essence, Elizabeth runs two practices: One is focused on in-depth psychotherapy and the other on treating insomnia, which involves a brief protocol.
In the former, Elizabeth utilizes a number of different evidence-based modalities and takes an eclectic approach that takes into account a client’s needs and/or goals. She brings in elements of Psychodynamic therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Humanistic Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness practices. With individuals and couples, she spends some time looking at early relationships with parents and other important attachment figures and explores how those experiences are playing out in clients’ current relationships. She strives to offer a safe space for her clients to open up and get to the heart of the issues they are facing. For clients who need extra support or are interested in exploring medication, Elizabeth will work closely with other providers, including psychiatrists.
In her role as a sleep therapist, Elizabeth utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) to help clients turn nighttime desperation into delicious, dreamy sleep. In six to eight sessions, her clients learn how to significantly increase their sleep efficiency so that their time in bed is time actually spent sleeping.
Elizabeth wants all of her clients to leave feeling empowered to take control of their lives. Prior to starting her private practice, she worked at the Brien Center for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. Her office is conveniently located right next door to the Wall Street subway station. She is also near the Fulton Street and Broad Street subway stations. She looks forward to meeting you.
