Professional statement

Karen Singleton is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at Cobb Psychotherapy LCSW in Midtown, Manhattan who specializes in treating adults with depression and anxiety disorders. She has over three decades of experience working with individuals, couples, and parents who are navigating a life transition, relationship challenges or are needing additional support in managing their anxiety or depression.

Karen’s treatment approach is grounded in psychodynamic therapy, but she utilizes a combination of therapy modalities based on the client’s needs and goals. This includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness practices. She ultimately wants her clients to walk away confident in their ability to manage their symptoms and conquer all of life’s challenges.

Knowing that each client is different and unique, Karen is able to expertly create an individualized treatment plan. She offers a nonjudgmental space for clients to navigate the challenges they are facing. Her office at Cobb Psychotherapy LCSW is located just steps from Penn Station.


Message to clients

The key to any successful treatment is grounded on the strength of the collaborative partnership. That said, my goal is to be a better listener. I work to understand the explicit and the implicit meaning of what is brought into the session, and attempt to get attuned to what resonates in the many layers beneath.
