Dr. Rebecca Cohen is a Licensed Psychologist in New York who works with adults with depression and anxiety disorders. Many of her clients are women in their 20s and 30s.
Dr. Cohen’s treatment approach is insight-oriented, utilizing Psychodynamic therapy and relational framework. Rather than just treating clients’ symptoms, Rebecca takes the time to help them determine what the root cause is. She wants them to see the big picture and solve the problem long-term. While she gives her clients tools to utilize between sessions, she wants to give them strategies and insights that they cannot find online.
