Announcement icon We are currently providing telehealth initial evaluations as well as ongoing sessions.
Reaching out is a big step and contacting a therapist is an accomplishment and sign of growth in itself. Being a therapist requires that special quality that you cannot teach, and not all professionals have that alongside their education and experience. Our clinicians are personally engaging, insightful, and work with heart and soul. We place tremendous importance on the therapeutic relationship and trust, how one see themselves and relates to others, and the development of insight and deeper understanding. This is the groundwork to then start thinking about, planning, and implementing changes you want to make.
We provide counseling to adults and teens. Whether you want help coping with a temporary or ongoing issue, need to vent and sort through your feelings, or would like some help deciding where and how to start in approaching your life circumstances, we are here to help.
We offer confidential and affordable counseling services as NYS licensed therapists in Garden City, NY located in Nassau County of Long Island and close to the LIRR as well as Adelphi and Hofstra University. Nearby cities include Mineola, Hempstead, Williston Park and New Hyde Park. Low cost or free therapy services under some Insurance plans.

Garden City Therapy, PLLC | Ambalu & Group's Groups

Adult Social Support Group - Telehealth

We are gathering participants for an online therapeutic support group led by one of our mental health clinicians. Our aim is to provide a space where clients can socialize and share experiences related to symptoms emerging or worsening due to the isolation brought on from COVID-19. This includes emotional, physical, and interpersonal distress. Please let us know if you are interested and once we have enough participants we will begin the group. Thank you!
