Kristy Fitzgerald is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Flatiron, Manhattan specializing in relationships, family challenges, substance use, and trauma. She enjoys working with young professionals as they navigate the pressures of the working world, define the kinds of relationships they hope to be in, discover their identity separate from their family of origin, and make peace with traumatic past events. Kristy helps her clients gain insight into self-defeating patterns and thrive through self-exploration.
Kristy’s particular area of expertise is in addiction recovery. She helps clients explore the impact of substance use on their relationships and gradually reduce use over time by replacing substances with sustainable coping mechanisms. She also works with many trauma survivors and utilizes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help clients heal at a comfortable pace.
Kristy offers individual, family, and couples counseling. She strives to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with her clients and fosters a safe, supportive environment that facilitates self-development.
