Leon Garber is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Midtown, Manhattan specializing in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, and existential challenges. The primary focus of his practice is in helping clients manage anxiety disorders, including social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). He works closely with his clients to help decrease self-destructive behaviors, foster self-compassion, and develop healthy coping skills to live happier, more meaningful lives. He also helps clients recover from narcissistic / emotional abuse in relationships with partners, spouses, friends, and/or relatives.
Leon’s approach is grounded in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to challenge clients’ unhealthy behaviors, feelings, and thoughts. For clients with OCD, he utilizes Exposure and Response Prevention, a type of CBT to help clients face their fears in a systematic, gradual manner. He also draws upon Existential Therapy to support clients as they contemplate life meaning and explore feelings of doubt or despair.
Supportive and thoughtful, Leon is dedicated to building a safe space for individuals to openly share their concerns and work toward practical goals. His practice is conveniently located near Penn Station and the 33rd Street subway station.
