Dr. Rebeca Gonzalez-Scherman is a licensed clinical psychologist in Chelsea, New York, specializing in trauma, anxiety, and depression. She works with adults, adolescents, and couples as they navigate times of transition and change that may lead to uncertainty in relationships, career, and identity.
Dr. Scherman uses an integrative approach, drawing upon her expertise in insight-oriented and trauma-informed care. She works collaboratively with clients to understand both the immediate concerns that bring them to therapy, and the deeper, underlying beliefs that inform their thought and relationship patterns.
Dr. Scherman encourages clients to bring an open mind into the therapy room. An open mind allows clients to pay close attention to the connection between mind and body resulting in a better understanding of self and becoming more present in their daily lives. She offers sessions in both English and Spanish at her Chelsea office, conveniently located near 23rd street subway lines and crosstown bus.
