Professional statement

Maytal Meltzer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York specializing in maternal mental health, anxiety and young adults. Many of Maytal's patients are struggling with their reproductive journey, infertility and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. In addition, her patients may also be experiencing challenges in relationships, family dynamics, friendships, identity issues, work challenges, trauma, anxiety and loss. Maytal's goal is to identify concerns and help you move from feeling stuck in some areas of life to achieving your own definition of well being.

Maytal has particular expertise in maternal mental health. Society tells us what to expect in the journey to becoming pregnant, being pregnant and entering motherhood. However, when your own unique experience does not match what you have been told, it can lead to feelings of shame, guilt, anxiety and depression. Maytal is passionate about supporting women and their families in their reproductive and parenting journey.

Maytal is committed to those suffering from anxiety. The only certainty in life is change. However, that does not make it any easier when suffering with postpartum anxiety, a breakup, life transitions or career choices. Maytal can help you learn to navigate and cope with difficult feelings, understand your fears around uncertainty and move forward.

Maytal has been working with young adults in their 20's and 30's for many years. Maytal recognizes it is difficult to be young, living in New York City and trying to figure out what is best for your well being. Maytal will help you to develop compassion for yourself and gain confidence.

Maytal is passionate about mental health and uses a combination of therapy approaches to help her patients meet their goals. Maytal has over 13 years of experience and received her MSW at NYU. Her practice is trauma informed.

Message to clients

Life is full of uncertainty and unexpected challenges. It is rarely how we plan it to be. It is common to feel anxious, sad, angry or begin to question ourselves when faced with difficult situations. Through understanding your history and triggers, we can help to see these moments in a fuller light. Psychotherapy can help build compassion for your self and resiliency in navigating what comes your way. Therapy is a collaborative process and we will work closely together to identify concerns and focus on helping move from feeling ‘stuck’ in some areas of your life to achieving your own definition of well being.
