Professional statement

Sheina Schochet is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Midtown, Manhattan who specializes in working with women, especially those dealing with life transitions, including starting a new job or a new relationship.

Sheina mainly works with clients who are high-functioning women in their 20s and 30s, including young professionals and young moms. Relationships and self-love seem to be the overall theme in the work she does, including struggling in relationships, not finding the right person, and/or repeating the same negative patterns. She also enjoys short-term therapy that has a goal in sight.

Sheina knows how stressful it is to adapt to a “new normal.” But that’s where therapy comes in. She takes a person-centered approach, meaning she believes you are the expert of your own life. She'll work with you to develop skills that will help you become your best self.

When working with clients with anxiety surrounding relationships or new situations, Sheina frequently utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices. She wants her clients to become more aware of their thoughts and then challenge them. She may suggest books or guided meditations to help clients continue to make progress between appointments.

Sheina helps her clients move from who they should be to who they truly are, without societal expectations. She looks forward to meeting you at her office near the 33rd. Street subway station.

Client testimonials

Sheina was punctual and informative.

- Zencare client • September 2020

A bit over a year ago, following a series of low points in my life, I had reached a place where I no longer recognized myself. Emotionally, mentally and physically drained, I knew that I needed to find the strength to come out of my rut. I reached out to Sheina and it was the best decision I ever made. Over the past year, Sheina has helped me experience growth beyond what I thought I was capable of. In a loving and caring manner, she has helped me to identify the negatige behavior patterns that led to my low points .Most importantly, Sheina has taught me how to change these ruinous patterns and replace them with positive, healthy, self-affirming ones. Within one year Sheina has positively influenced almost every aspect of my life.

Body image has always been a struggle of mine. I never felt confident in myself and that reflected in my day to day life activities, weather work, relationships etc. Sheina Schochet helped me change that. She has a knack working through these specific issues. I can say I am a more confident woman and I'm proud of who I am today
