Professional statement

Nathan Feiles is a psychotherapist in midtown Manhattan, near Columbus Circle. He works with adults who are navigating the stressors and emotions of daily life, as well as young professionals and college students who are dealing with the complexities of student life and transitioning into professional life.

Many people come to see Nathan when they feel like they are stuck in life, struggling with anxiety (mind and/or body anxiety), feeling out of sync with relationships, struggling to achieve emotional or general life balance, as well as other impediments to feeling grounded and happy with life.

Nathan specializes in various forms of anxiety, which includes the ways anxiety can attack and disrupt the body and the mind. He also specializes in relationships (including commitment and ‘grass is greener’ tendencies), depression, fear of flying, migraines, self-esteem, and other areas.

Nathan’s therapy style is to go at your pace. He wants to get to know you as a whole person -- what you are struggling with on the inside and outside, what is working for you, and understand where you are coming from and where you want to be in your life.

As an integrative and relational therapist, Nathan helps you identify and process through the underlying emotional, relational, and psychological patterns that contribute to the struggles you’re experiencing while helping you shift the overall foundation of these patterns for long-term success. In this process, Nathan may bring in other techniques, such as behavioral strategies, somatic focusing, mindfulness exercises, affect regulation, grounding, and others.

Contact Nathan with any questions or to set up and appointment. 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.
