Professional statement

Rachelle Feintuch-Heinemann is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with offices in Brooklyn and Manhattan, NYC. She specializes in working with adults in their 20s and 30s as they navigate the challenges of anxiety, depression, self-esteem, career changes, and adjustment to life in the city. Many of her clients are women who have a history of or are currently struggling with disordered eating and negative body image. Rachelle works closely with each individual to help them understand the root of their presenting challenges and find new peace within themselves and their bodies.

Rachelle’s treatment approach is grounded in Psychoanalytic Therapy. She enjoys doing deep, process-oriented work with her clients to help them gain insight into how past events and early relationships influence their current patterns of thought and behavior. She also brings in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills, giving clients concrete tools to process overwhelming emotions and stay grounded in the present moment.

Rachelle offers a supportive and non-judgmental space where clients can share their most vulnerable thoughts to better understand themselves and work towards actionable change. Her Brooklyn office is located in Midwood right next to the Avenue I subway station, and her office in the Flatiron District is located near the 23rd Street subway station.
