She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Katie Banach is a Licensed Psychotherapist based in New York, NY. She works with young adults ages 22-38 looking to overcome feelings of anxiety, depression, self-doubt, past trauma, grief, and loss. Many of her clients are high-achieving adults who are driven and have high expectations for themselves but find they are feeling overwhelmed with the weight of their expectations, fears of failure and disappointing others, people-pleasing behaviors, and struggle with self-confidence. Her clients frequently described themselves as over-thinkers, perfectionists, and feel paralyzed with decision-making and starting projects.
Katie's style is rooted in Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and she has training in many different types of therapy including Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
Together, your work with Katie will help you navigate through difficult emotions and feelings while learning to recognize and change negative thought patterns. You will gain the ability to feel comfortable and confident with yourself, increase your ability to cope with your stressors and improve your relationships with others. This process will happen in a safe, judgment-free space. Life transitions do not need to be overwhelming. Having the right support can make this a time of self-growth and personal betterment.
Katie believes the cornerstone of the therapeutic process is the working relationship between the client and therapist. Katie offers an alliance of safety, free of judgment and “suppose too’s.” She meets her clients where they are, accepts them for who they are, and works to help get them where they want and hope to be.
Katie has an online therapy practice. She offers virtual video sessions to help make therapy more accessible.
She also offers her clients the first session for $80, so they can get to know her before committing to her full fee.
