Evan Moore is a Brooklyn-based counselor and therapist who specializes in working with college students, adolescent and young men, and the intellectually disabled. Much of his work with clients revolves around social anxiety, depression, isolation, identity, career, as well as masculinity-related stress, procrastination, and young adulthood.
Evan primarily utilizes CBT, Psychodynamic theory, and mindfulness-based stress reduction in his approach with clients. He will often apply multiple modalities in order to best approach each client with their individual and unique situations and problems. Evan applies the use of mindfulness exercises and meditation, encourages outside homework like thought logs, and will explore past traumas and history for the client to better understand themselves. Another important piece for Evan is the development of emotional intelligence by way of developing empathy and understanding for others, creating words banks for different feelings and what triggers such feelings to happen.
Evan received his BA in Psychology at the University of North Texas. During this time, he worked as a Resident Assistant for UNT where he interacted with many first time college students and helped transition them into a new way of life and community. After graduation, Evan worked as a community support specialist for Denton MHMR where he interacted face to face with clients with intellectual development disorders. Evan moved to New York City the following year where he was accepted into the Counseling in Mental Health & Wellness program at NYU Steinhardt. There he interned with Children of Promise, Jamron Counseling, and finally Bray Counseling where he honed his clinical approach and learned the ins and outs of branding, marketing, organization, & insurance.
Evan is available for remote sessions and in the future will be available in person as well at a future Brooklyn location. He works throughout the week with a flexible schedule.
