Professional statement

Dr. Gabrielle Ducsay is a Clinical Psychologist who holds licenses in both New York State and California. Dr. Ducsay specializes in helping with relationship issues, infertility, grief and loss, anxiety disorders and life transitions.

Dr. Ducsay believes relationships are at the center of our lives and they can impact us in a positive or negative way. Personal and professional relationships require us to behave differently, and to access different aspects of ourselves. When relationships are not going smoothly, Dr. Ducsay helps her patients identify what’s happening for them emotionally, and practically so they can better understand what actions to take in order to heal, balance or improve them. Dr. Ducsay also understands how anxiety or depression can influence how we behave in relationships, and she will help you identify your patterns.

Many of Dr. Ducsay's clients come for help to navigate life transitions, such as work or personal transitions, job loss/burnout, career change, moving, infertility, or loss of a loved one.

The approach Dr. Ducsay takes is collaborative and interactive. She is invested in getting to know you and help you understand yourself with as little judgement as possible. Dr. Ducsay believes we are capable of healing and change in an environment that privileges curiosity, safety, and going at the patient's pace.

Originally from Los Angeles, CA, Dr. Ducsay now resides in Manhattan and provides therapy to people on both coasts. She earned her MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, and a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She wrote her dissertation on borderline personality disorder from a feminist and social constructivist point of view, and strives to make therapy an inclusive, welcoming place for all clients.


Message to clients

I don't see my practice as a place where people come to get fixed, but rather a place where we practice curiosity and compassion.

To reach a deeper knowledge of yourself requires bravery and safety. I strive to make therapy a safe place by working at your pace and watching out for judgements and criticism that stifle exploration. I believe you are an expert on yourself, however I may challenge you or offer another perspective as a fresh pair of eyes and ears.

My style is collaborative and I will ask questions, reflect back what I hear, and clarify things that are confusing or difficult to put into words. I will be your guide on the the path to discovering what makes you unique and I will help you put into practice how to share yourself with the people in your life.
