Professional statement

Nirav Soni is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Midtown Manhattan with deep expertise in serving clients throughout the lifespan experiencing challenges related to mood, anxiety, and relationships. His particular specialty is in working with adolescents and school-age children, helping them to understand how they can better relate to their family, their peers, and their inner world.

Dr. Soni offers an integrated approach, primarily focused on insight-oriented work, to help his clients process the stories they tell about themselves, how they view their place in the world, and whether their current behaviors contribute to the kind of person they would like to become. He helps clients build the skills to manage overwhelming emotions, succeed at school, relate more authentically and openly to the people around them.

Dr. Soni is deeply committed to providing a safe environment where adolescents and young adults can explore the full possibility of their unique identity.
