Professional statement

Nathan Feiles is a psychotherapist who specializes in anxiety, relationship issues, depression, fear of flying, and self-esteem.

People often seek Nathan’s support for general anxiety (including general anxiety disorder, or GAD), as well as specific concerns like issues with intimacy, worries of financial destitution, social anxiety, life transitions, and others. He also sees people who are grappling with creative blocks related to artistic endeavors and careers in the performing arts. Nathan also welcomes people who are feeling a general low or lurking sense of underwhelm.

Nathan works to thoroughly and compassionately understand what emotions and struggles people are going through in determining the best approach for your situation. His approach is relational; as an integrative therapist, he helps people develop long-term insight while also helping them to work through the psychological, emotional, and relational blocks to where they want to be in life. In addition, Nathan integrates various behavioral and mindfulness-based techniques when can be helpful.

Nathan’s office is located in Midtown West in the Carnegie Mews building, steps away from Columbus Circle and Central Park. He looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

I believe an effective therapy starts with the relationship that we build in our work together. My priority is to understand you and your needs while providing an environment that is warm, safe, supportive, and genuine for you to work through difficult and painful life struggles. There is no judgment or pressure here.

At our first session, I'd like to learn about you and what you are going through and struggling with. Going at your pace, I want to get to know you as a person, not only the struggles, but also your interests, motivations, and anything else that makes you who you are.

It is also possible to come in for therapy not fully knowing what it is you'd like to change, or where it is you're looking to end up. This is okay and actually very common. You may know that something needs to change, though not be sure of what or how. The answers often take shape organically as the process unfolds.
