Janice Amato is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Midtown Manhattan who supports clients navigating the murky waters of loss, which can be a different journey for everyone. While some clients come to therapy in the wake of the loss of a loved one, others explore grief around the loss of a job, meaningful relationship, family connectedness, or sense of self. Janice skillfully guides clients as they process these difficult times, using moments of unexpected change to examine their core beliefs and make more conscious choices.
Janice is psychoanalytically trained and helps clients to investigate how early experiences influence their patterns of thought and behavior. By learning to recognize how unconscious patterns contribute to present circumstances, clients can isolate their true values and live a life that is more aligned with who they really want to be. Janice also integrates skill-based therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to equip clients with the daily coping skills they need to get unstuck in the grieving process and make concrete change.
Janice is dedicated to providing a safe environment to allow clients to do the deep processing work of grief recovery. She invites clients in mourning to learn to reorganize their world and move forward in way that honors what they've lost and builds new hope for the future. With over two decades of experience, Janice is excited to welcome new clients to her Midtown office, steps from the 33rd St station.
