Kim O'Connor is a psychotherapist in Westchester, NY who specializes in anxiety, depression, parenting, life transitions, and family, school, and work stress.
Kim's practice is open to individual adults and teens. She is skilled in helping clients navigate such life adjustments as raising a family, entering or ending romantic relationships, and deciding on a desired academic or career course. She also welcomes clients who are seeking anger management skills, for themselves or loved ones.
Kim takes an eclectic approach to treatment, infusing her psychodynamic training with components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as mindfulness-based strategies. This blend empowers clients with the opportunity to gain perspective and greater self-awareness, while also developing skills for managing difficult situations and emotions.
When working with parents, Kim emphasizes the power of the family structure, which helps clients understand how they can affect positive change within their unit. When working with teens, Kim understands the pressures of academic rigor and helps clients identify and navigate symptoms of perfectionism.
