Maytal Meltzer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker near Penn Station specializing in young adults, women's issues, anxiety and life transitions. Many of Maytal's patients are struggling with relationships, family dynamics, friendships, identity issues, work challenges, uncertainty about life choices, 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 working with individuals experiencing life transitions and anxiety. The only certainty in life is change.
