Are you looking to live better? Do you need some extra support and safe place to work through life's challenges? I can help! I'm a New York City based therapist who works with clients managing anxiety, self esteem struggles, interpersonal or relationship issues, life transitions, career difficulties, managing stress, feeling "stuck", and/or depression. I also work with couples (both traditional and non-traditional) on a wide range of relationship concerns. Therapy can also just be a safe space to process daily events. Being a person is hard sometimes!
Please contact me via e-mail (rachel@vivawellnessnyc.com) or through Psych Today's messaging system for a free e-mail or phone consultation to see if we'd be a good fit. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve a happier, healthier, and well balanced life!
I work with clients to create an environment that feels supportive, helpful, and safe. Therapy needs to work for you, so I tailor the experience to each person. There's no "right" way to do therapy - it looks different on everyone! I treat clients holistically, as I believe that physical, mental, and social health are all connected.
