Professional statement

Paris L. Williams is a Psychotherapist in Brooklyn, New York. Paris offers 100% virtual sessions and works with adults of all ages. Many of Paris’s clients come in to address anxiety, relationship struggles, and trauma. Paris is particularly passionate about serving relational attachment concerns. She also has advanced training in the area of Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

Paris is trained in Eclectic modality that often encompasses mindfulness practices with psychodynamic themes. She oftentimes brings attention to feelings and thoughts in the here and now and provides a safe space to express, understand, and process those feelings. Her role is an objective observer who emotionally supports and sensitively challenges the client through one's journey. In the session, Paris focuses on mindfulness practices and exploring creative ways to provide outlets to manage stressors. This approach supports clients’ awareness of their feelings and know how to work with them better. Paris's style is emotion-focused, exploratory, and non-judgmental. When clients first start therapy with her, the client and Paris will explore the client's history and discover how past influencers (mom, dad, caregivers, etc) helped them become who they are today.

Paris and the client will explore maladaptive patterns and thoughts to make different choices. Paris received her Master of Arts in Counseling degree from Lincoln Christian University. She has worked at Washington Square Institute for several years, where she successfully led 3-day relationship and career-based workshops. Outside of private practice, She enjoys roller skating, working out, socializing, and alone time.


Message to clients

Congratulations on starting or restarting this journey of self-discovery. Sometimes it’s not easy to put yourself first, but in the future, you will probably thank yourself. In this world that we live in, it is not easy to share how you feel with others and, more importantly, believe that those people are even listening. I can imagine it is even harder to talk to a stranger about things that are important to you and not know how one would feel about you. Wondering things like, "Will she understand what I am saying or am I boring her?" I completely understand those emotions because, in the beginning stages of seeking a therapist, I too had the same worries and concerns. Therefore, I think it’s important to go at the pace that you are most comfortable with, and with hope, time, and consistency, your comfort level will increase and so will our work together.

Consultation will be 30 minutes video call, you are able to reach out through message or self-service through the phone call portion. I will set up a 30-minute free consultation.
