Criticism is an unavoidable part of life, and while it is never a fun experience to be criticized, there are certain ways we can support ourselves and prevent an emotional spiral. Dr. Nelly Seo shares several techniques to practice after receiving critical feedback from others:

It is very common for people to have strong emotional reactions to perceived criticism. This is because criticism often triggers an underlying negative narrative or belief we hold about ourselves, which can provoke the experience of shame. Dr. Nelly Seo shares some practical steps to take immediat

Many of us who tend to feel anxious in social situations, otherwise known as social anxiety, may lean on alcohol to help manage those feelings of anxiety when we do socialize.

A few drinks can make us feel carefree and confident and this can make alcohol feel important to our enjoyment of socializing. However, the relationship between anxiety and alcohol might be more counterintuitive than it seems.

Dr. Jordan Meisel explores the relationship between alcohol and anxiety, and shares some tips to reduce alcohol consumption.

Embarking on the journey of pregnancy and childbirth is often envisioned and portrayed as a joyous and exhilarating time.

One of the most frequent reasons people seek out therapy is to address their anxiety, and one of the more common forms of anxiety is social anxiety. Research shows that one of the most successful treatments for maladaptive anxiety is exposure and response prevention (EXRP). Luckily, if you live in New York City and suffer from social anxiety, there are ample naturalistic opportunities to engage in exposure and response prevention.

In the realm of polite society, there are topics that we’re often advised to steer clear of—the kinds of conversations that make us squirm in our seats. But the truth about therapy is that it’s not polite company; it’s a space designed for you to delve into every nook and cranny of your life, even those that feel awkward or uneasy to discuss. Dr. Jessica DelNero answers the common question: “Can I really talk about _____ in therapy?” and shares some of the topics many find themselves hesitant to bring up.

We're excited to share that beginning in late January, Dr. Aleksandra Rayska will be offering a second installment of her group offering: Befriending Your Body.

Dr. Rayska is a clinical psychologist and a trained Dance/Movement Therapist with over 15 years of experience bringing mind and body into the clinical space.

This is a 10-week group (with virtual and in person options available) and will focus on the psychological impact of experiencing chronic somatic distress; exploring how pain and illness affect your thoughts and feelings, and providing techniques to help you cope.

Each week, we will incorporate embodied therapy techniques and mindfulness skills into an open discussion. Inviting our bodies into the room will allow us to not only “talk” but also “be” with the somatic experience - that way together we can support each other in “re-inhabiting” our bodies.

We are so excited to welcome Dr. Preeya Desai to our team!

Dr. Preeya believes that everyone can benefit from therapy whether you find yourself in acute distress or wish to understand yourself and your patterns on a deeper level.

She finds that a strong therapeutic relationship is an important facet of her work, allowing her to support her clients as they navigate life challenges, mood changes, trauma, or loss. She maintains a highly collaborative, genuine, and empathic stance in treatment that allows her to develop treatment goals with her clients and move through therapy at a pace that works for them.

She has experience conducting CBT, DBT, CPT, short-term treatment, and mindfulness-based treatment. She welcomes patients of all backgrounds, race/ethnicities, sexual orientation, and religions.

Dr. Preeya received a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Psychology from Barnard College.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 46.3 million people met DSM-5 criteria for a substance use disorder in 2021. And yet, only 6% of these people received substance use treatment. One possible reason for this could be the stigma and mystery that still surrounds substance use disorders and their treatment today.
