People come to me confronting many issues in their lives, fears of intimacy, difficulty setting or achieving goals at work, marital problems, problems with other family members, grief and loss. I see my job as exploring these issues and finding ways to deal with and resolve them so that the patient is able to find ways to deal with their feelings, find solutions to their problems, and be able to move forward in their life in the most effective and healthy way.
I am dedicated to connecting with you and helping you work through difficult times. I am available for phone and video sessions currently. The nurturing environment of a therapeutic relationship can deepen your understanding of yourself and teach you new ways to handle life's difficulties. I strive to be compassionate, non-judgmental, genuine and down-to-earth, so you can feel safe and comfortable sharing your deepest feelings.

I do believe each person and family has unique resources to activate healing processes. Brief Therapy requires a highly collaborative approach between therapist and clients, and focuses on practical solutions and clear communication. Brief Therapy offers a maximum of 10 sessions but usually don't need that many to promote change in the problem that is presented. I work with individuals, couples and families with a variety of problems: marital conflict and affairs, depression and anxiety, children and adolescent problems, addiction, eating disorders, stress and work related problems. I also provide online/Skype therapy if you needed.
Hello. My name is Natalie Mena and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-R) in New York State. I have 10 plus years experience as a public servant working with both families and children, and individuals with severe mental illness (SMI). I describe myself as a Latina woman, student of life, and healer. I became a psychotherapist to help make a difference in the world. I have great interest in helping my clients uncover their daily struggles and heal from generational traumas in order to become the greatest version of themselves.

Sometimes, it isn’t what happens to us that causes us to suffer, it’s what we say to ourselves about what happens. I work to empower people to address their issues and overcome personal obstacles. I don’t believe in focusing on labels and diagnosis. I believe that people sometimes struggle with different behaviors, emotions and thoughts. My job is to help you address, modify, explore, change or just understand those behaviors, emotions and thoughts so that you can maximize your potential and be the best you that you can be!
Are you struggling with feelings that are often uncomfortable, overwhelming, debilitating or even shameful? Do you find that you have difficulties finding safe, satisfying relationships? Do you feel stuck and confused and unsure of what next steps to take? Do you feel guilt or overwhelmed of parenting a special need child? Are these difficulties getting in the way of you leading the life you want? You do not have to struggle alone. We can work together to uncover the reasons for these difficulties and work through them to a more peaceful, satisfying place.
Sessions with you and your therapist shouldn’t be dry, or one-way. It should be a relationship, an alliance: after all, you’re sharing part of yourself in a session with a stranger, one that is going to hear your thoughts and personal details, and help you process them. It requires trust, and a proper guide, one that is kind and non-judgmental. It can be an informal conversation that lacks judgment but can give you validation and the ability to process your thoughts in a safe space. Being in a non-judgmental, supportive space can be healing. Therapy is about helping us to solve problems and to think better, do better, feel better.
We are living in an unprecedented time of stress. Coming out of isolation, returning back to the office, for some, kids back in school, creates an environment that is ripe for potential emotional and/or psychological issues. And if we add to this, the death of, or separation from loved ones, friends, or coworkers, it can make this period in our lives sometimes feel overwhelming. Talking to a professional can help you get through this difficult period.
I understand how challenging it can be to develop a trusting relationship with a new therapist. I am extremely patient with my clients and put in a great deal of effort in building a comfortable working relationship while supporting your personal growth and mental health resiliency. My practice provides a warm and safe space for children (age 6-12), adolescents (12-17), adults (18+), and couples to address wide variety of issues, ranging from depression, anxiety, and trauma to those coping with relationship challenges and adjustment difficulties.
I believe that mental health issues arise when we are faced with overwhelming emotions in isolation. Without the necessary support, emotions get so big and daunting that we defend ourselves against them, leading to numbness, anxiety, and depression. My goal is to invite intense emotions into the room so that we can learn to regulate them together and they can be reincorporated into the psyche, leading to a fuller and healthier life.
I have been a therapist for more than twenty years. I love my work and take it very seriously. I work closely with my clients to identify their issues and help them explore the solutions available to them. My role is not to judge but to listen and help develop self-soothing and problem solving skills to facilitate overcoming obstacles. I treat a variety of issues, including depression and anxiety which often interfere with relationships, employment and academic achievement. I welcome everyone to call with your questions. I provide treatment, assessments, diagnosis and referrals.
I am a psychodynamic/analytically trained clinical social worker. I have been teaching clinical practice and practicing for over 30 years. Its often quite frightening to come to a stranger and share one's suffering. I often recommend that one initially goes for a consultation. The consultation hopefully, will provide a sense if the therapist can be of help. Therapy is a collaboration of two people. People often seek therapy when there is a painful loss or disappointment in their lives. Understanding and support helps in the recovery process.
**Note: For fastest response, please contact me via e-mail. ** Life is busy, stressful, and anxious. It is a constant effort to manage all of the "should"s and the "musts"; the expectations and the high standards - put on you most often by no one more than yourself! But life is also beautiful, rewarding, and fun - if you can only slow down and get out of your head long enough to enjoy it. Even the many positive aspects of our lives can be overwhelming when we get caught in that anxious cycle.
During these complex times, we are presented with extremely challenging issues that demand resourcefulness and perseverance. No one is immune to pain and suffering; the sharing of it is a courageous and healing act. I specialize in helping clients develop strategies to cope with anxieties, fears, depression, hopelessness and helplessness. I bring years of expertise providing supportive, interactive, strength-based treatment and a client-centered approach, using evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, psychodynamic and stress-inoculation training.
Over the last decade I have had numerous clients come to me with anxiety, depression, mood swings, emotional instability, trauma, suicidal ideations, anger, obsessive compulsive behaviors, and more. They have gained insight, understanding, someone that listens to their situations, and assists them with develops coping skills such as problem solving, calming skills, reframe of thoughts, DBT skills, and positive affirmations.
