Professional statement

Stefanie Robison is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York, NY with expertise in providing support to young adults with anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), eating disorders, relationship issues, and depression. She guides emerging adults through times of uncertainty, such as the transitions into college and the working world, when concerns around body image, perfectionism, and obsessive thinking often arise. Her goal is to help clients build the sustainable coping skills to navigate shifting life circumstances throughout adulthood.

Stefanie uses evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness. She works with clients struggling with disordered eating from a health-at-every-size approach, which emphasizes holistic wellness rather than dieting, while also striving to understand the underlying patterns and beliefs that can lead to unhealthy coping strategies.

Stefanie is a highly interactive, supportive therapist. She aims to empower each individual to regain control in their life and discover the freedom to pursue their true desires. Her Union Square office is conveniently located near the 14th St subway station, and she also offers remote sessions.

There are no 'pre-set' solutions to your unique struggles, and I know that. I create a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental environment that allows change to occur.
