Dr. Nanika Coor is a Licensed Psychologist in Brooklyn, New York who specializes in positive and respectful parenting. She works with parents who want to improve or repair the relationship with their children. She helps individuals explore their beliefs about parenting and how their childhood experiences impact the way they raise their own children. She works with parents across the lifespan—whether it is a first-time mom, a dad with two teenagers, or a seasoned grandmother. She also offers as-needed consulting sessions for individuals who need help navigating a specific issue related to parenting or working with children.
Dr. Coor is an advocate of respectful and connection-based parenting, in which parents set kind but firm limits and give their children the space to be themselves and express all of their feelings, both positive and negative. She helps her clients understand what triggers their stressful or angry feelings when they're interacting with their kids, and how to create more peace at home. She also helps her clients develop healthy coping mechanisms and reduce tendencies to hold themselves to impossibly high parenting standards.
Dr. Coor wants her clients to feel empowered, capable, and connected, so that they can provide an environment for their children that will help them to thrive. She truly believes that it's never too late to try to heal or deepen the bond with your child, and she looks forward to helping you on your path to being the parent you really want to be. Her office is located just steps from the Borough Hall subway station in Brooklyn Heights.
