Professional statement

Dr. Helen Stevens is a clinical psychologist in Westchester, NY. She provides individual therapy to adults and young adults, and her areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, and life transitions.

Dr. Stevens often works with young adults in their 20s and 30s who find themselves stuck in patterns and behaviors that aren’t making them happy – but which they don’t know how to change themselves. That might include choosing the wrong romantic partners or undermining their own success at work. Dr. Stevens is dedicated to helping clients increase their awareness of these dynamics and shift their approach in transformative ways.

Dr. Stevens creates a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental space where clients are encouraged to be curious about their struggles and their strengths. She works collaboratively to understand what’s getting in each client's way, and to build space for them to experiment with new ways of relating to themselves and to others. Treatment goals and direction with Dr. Stevens will be guided by each client's needs and desires. In addition to goals, Dr. Stevens hopes to help clients to develop more flexibility and freedom in their lives so that they can grow in the directions they desire and experience more joy and fulfillment in their day-to-day.

She looks forward to working with you.


Message to clients

Working with me involves expanding self-awareness through exploration of both the present and the past. We will discuss your early life in order to understand the ways that you adapted to life, navigated relationships and challenges, and began to develop your identity. We will discuss your present experiences in your day-to-day life as well as your experiences in our sessions and within our therapeutic relationship.

I have found that the therapy relationship is one of the most powerful tools to help people grow in new ways that haven’t felt possible until now. For this reason, I strive to create a space where you feel comfortable welcoming all aspects of yourself with me.
