Professional statement

Elizabeth Greene is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York and Massachusetts who sees individual adults and couples, as well as teens and families. Named one of the best therapists in New York by New York Magazine, she specializes in anxiety, depression, grief, substance use challenges, and trauma, including sexual abuse. Additionally, Elizabeth frequently works with clients who are navigating relationship challenges, such as struggling to develop a significant relationship or considering breaking up or a divorce.

In her practice, Elizabeth takes an eclectic approach that takes into account a client’s needs and goals. She utilizes different evidence-based modalities, including Psychodynamic Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT), Humanistic Psychology, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness practices. A member of the Climate Psychology Alliance North America (CPA-NA), she is trained in Ecotherapy to help her clients who are grappling with climate change and other environmental issues. She is also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), a highly-effective, short-term treatment for clients experiencing sleep issues or insomnia.

With individuals and couples, Elizabeth spends time looking at early relationships with parents and other important attachment figures, exploring how those experiences are playing out in clients’ current relationships. For clients who need extra support or are interested in exploring medication, Elizabeth will work closely with other providers, including psychiatrists.

Elizabeth strives to offer a safe space for her clients to open up and get to the heart of the issues they are facing. It is her hope that her clients 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. Elizabeth is currently seeing clients primarily online and also offers "walking therapy" outdoors. She looks forward to meeting you.

Message to clients

If you're here, you're ready for a change. I try to create a space that feels safe and positive, where you can feel free to talk about whatever is on your mind. You may be trying to work through a recent loss or a past trauma, a relationship issue, or a nagging anxiety or sense of unease. Maybe you know that there is something standing between you and the life you want, but don't know how to change old patterns. I will meet you with openness, thoughtful questions, and honest feedback, and together we can process your emotions, build insight, and create room for you to develop goals aligned with your desires. My hope is that our work will bring you closer to a life that reflects your true longings and capabilities. I see individual adults and teens as well as couples and families. My approach is caring and collaborative and I would feel honored to be on your journey with you!
