Professional statement

Dr. Konata Stallings is a Clinical Psychologist in Kew Gardens, NY who specializes in working with adults who are coping with anxiety, trauma and depression, especially those struggling with grief and loss. He enjoys working with individuals who may be struggling with mourning as well as coping with more abstract losses. He also enjoys working with members of the LGBTQIA community (especially those who identify as bisexual) as well as folks on the autistic spectrum. He has experience helping higher-functioning adults with Autism improve their social skills by helping them become more effective communicators. Dr. Stallings also enjoys working with creative individuals and performers such as actors, artists, and dancers.

Dr. Stallings utilizes an eclectic and integrative treatment approach that includes a number of modalities, including Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), particularly trauma-informed CBT. While Dr. Stallings works with his clients to explore how experiences earlier in life have impacted them as adults, he also helps them develop coping strategies to help them manage their symptoms and improve their level of functioning. His sessions are client-centered focusing on improving upon their current functioning.

Dr. Stallings really enjoys digging deep with his clients to help them better understand themselves and how they view the world. He offers a safe space where he welcomes all individuals. Outside of his private practice, Dr. Stallings is a Clinical Psychologist at The Floating Hospital. He looks forward to meeting you at his office that is conveniently located near the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens subway station.
