Therapists Specializing in Adolescent Mental Health in New York

Adolescence is a formative developmental phase of life full of rapid changes and unique challenges. Given the social, emotional, and physical changes occurring, it’s very normal to experience some degree of distress during this time. Therefore, it can be difficult to distinguish normal distress from more serious mental health concerns, particularly because adolescents can find it hard to communicate emotional and psychological difficulties. If symptoms such as persistent irritability, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, risk-taking behavior, or mood changes are negatively affecting an adolescents’ relationships or academic participation, seeking the opinion of a mental health professional may help.

A therapist will be able to discuss these symptoms and help choose the best fitting therapy type to help. Depending on the specific issues faced, therapists can help adolescents learn new skills for coping or communicating, deal with bullying, and examine thinking patterns in order to develop more helpful perspectives.

Below are therapists in New York who specialize in working with young people and adolescents. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care. Visit their profiles to watch an introductory video and book a free initial call to find a good fit!

When you are feeling overwhelmed, whether by sadness, workload, anger, or something else, it’s easy to feel cut off from the world, your loved ones, or even from yourself. Therapy can help you to develop a healthy relationship with yourself, and to regain a feeling of connection, joy, and engagement with the world around you.

I consider each therapeutic relationship to be a unique and collaborative experience. I make a point of allowing the work to unfold free of any preconceived notions, and utilize techniques from the theoretical traditions of psychodynamic, somatic, and attachment-oriented therapies.

Therapy can be a powerful force for good, so long as we never lose sight of the paramountcy of human connection and avoid retreating into narcissism. So many of us desire to feel more connected, less anxious, and less alienated, but we simply do not know how to achieve this reality. This is especially true for some of us who have experienced attachment disruptions, or even more severe forms of trauma. Or, perhaps we see a path forward, but that path vanishes suddenly without warning and is replaced by malaise and renewed uncertainty, or, even worse, despair. Our work together will focus on developing that path in such a way where it will endure even in the face of adversity and the intrusion of the past into the present.

My goal from the very first session is to help you see and feel something new that you didn’t fully put together, and to help you see the artistic connections your psyche has been waiting for you to make.

We’ll do that with freewheeling metaphors and images that help you illuminate what has been happening inside that’s been so confusing. As a big fan of movies, music, and literature, I’ll draw on references far and wide to help us connect to the heart of the matter for you.

In the process, you’ll come away forgetting about your problems and marveling at how much fun it is to discover new possibilities together.

Just as every individual is unique, so is their treatment. So it is my job to create a meaningful and appropriate treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. My approach to medicine is thoughtful and cautious; I will suggest the need for medication, but only when necessary and appropriate. I also value psychotherapy, and view it as a deeply personal, individualized, and dynamic process. Therapy is a place to share, unburden, and grow. By sharing my understanding of your concerns with empathy and respect, I hope to help you find insight into and relief from your adversities, and enhance your personal life so you may achieve healthier relationships with yourself and others.

Out-of-pocket-fees: $185 - $200 per session

I'm a Gestalt therapist with a private practice in New York City, and a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. Living in Manhattan is high stress and demanding. Whatever your responsibilities are, it is easy to become detached from your wants and needs. Integrating the body-mind connection into therapy helps my clients get back in touch with their feelings.

In our work together, we explore what's going on in your body as well as your mind. Physical sensations are often a clue to what’s happening emotionally. This holistic approach to therapy helps you discover new ways to cope with feelings and find relief from old emotional patterns.
