Professional statement

Dr. Sabrina Romanoff is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Midtown, Manhattan specializing in young adults and adults who are experiencing psychological distress and are navigating life transitions. This includes feelings of anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, depression and relationship issues. Dr. Romanoff has extensive experience working with both individuals and couples.

Dr. Romanoff’s therapeutic approach is primarily rooted in a psychodynamic perspective. She also integrates techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based approaches to provide immediate symptom relief. Dr. Romanoff helps people recognize habitual patterns, which are no longer effective and keep them stuck in unsatisfying repetitious cycles. She is noted for helping people identify how they are contributing to these cycles and how to alter their conceptualization of and method to manage problems. This approach supports her patients to move through immediate obstacles while also deepening their understanding of themselves to live life to the fullest.

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Romanoff is a professor at Yeshiva University, where she teaches clinical psychology doctoral students. Dr. Romanoff finalized her doctoral training at Harvard Medical School where she was a clinical fellow. She is a researcher whose work has been published in The Journal of Psychiatry Research and presented at the Harvard Medical School Mysell Psychiatry Research Symposium. Dr. Romanoff is also a media consultant, and is regularly interviewed for expert opinion on topics related to psychology, relationships, and performance. She is passionate about supporting her clients gain greater self-awareness while ensuring they feel supported and understood.


Message to clients

Psychotherapy is a collaborative and valuable opportunity for self-examination and growth. I work to create an honest and compassionate relationship with patients, which serves as the context to discover, recognize, and modify primary conflicts, strengths, and difficulties as they strive to transform patterns no longer serving them. I work both through a dynamic and skills-based perspective.

Often the very factors propelling people to reach their goals contribute to challenges in their personal lives including difficulty with self-esteem, achievement-based identity, and the tendency to construct their sense of self around meeting the needs of others.

My style is warm, thoughtful, and non-judgmental. When patients first start therapy, I work to understand their historical context, establish a strong relationship, and create a comfortable environment where they feel safe and heard.
