Aspen treats clients across the lifespan as they navigate family conflict, anxiety and depression, performance issues in school and work, mood disorders, trauma, gender, sexuality, race, culture, and life transitions.
I work with clients who suffer from various psychological ailments including eating disorders, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, trauma, and sexual problems. I help individuals to uncover and understand the root of their disorders. I believe that unhealthy behavioral patterns are often an individual's attempt to fill a void resulting from dissatisfaction in career, relationships, finances, spirituality, or life purpose. Healing happens when individuals begin to understand where their issues are coming from, thus allowing them to gain control over their mind and body and ultimately mastery over their lives.
We all face challenge in our lives; the way we manage them can make all the difference. I will work to build a caring relationship and a strong therapeutic alliance so you can feel safe to express yourself, share your feelings, your hopes, your dreams, your pain. I listen deeply to what you say, and notice what your body and eyes say when there are no words. Our therapy sessions will be geared toward finding hopeful, strength based paths toward improving your days. I pay careful attention to personal and family history and to current patterns and behaviors in order to help you see new possibilities for yourself.
Have you ever noticed how negativity becomes THE driving force in our lives? We use fear to keep us complacent, bad to keep us avoidant, sad to keep us constant, and all we are left with is feeling lost and uncertain. Questioning our every move we ask others for advice. It’s no wonder we end up feeling, angry, isolated, or disgusted with who and where we are. It’s possible to put an end to all of this, for good. You can become your biggest cheerleader instead of your worst citric. Feel confident and embrace change instead of running from it. Be the person you know you've wanted to be. I want to help you make it a reality.
Pandemic life has uprooted the very things (school, work, relationships) which keep us grounded and functioning. For many New Yorkers anxiety, depression and panic attacks have made it a struggle to cope, opening up wounds and worries from the past that leave them raw and unprepared for today's ever-shifting challenges. We will work through the emotions and confusion to find where, with whom, and in doing what you feel most grounded. Our work may include journaling or other reflection-oriented activities as well as mindfulness exercises to help you remain focused in the present in the face of stress.

Hello, my name is Dr. Keoshia Worthy and thank you for visiting my profile. The question that I am frequently asked is, “How do I know if I need therapy?” I like to approach that question by considering the common misconceptions and benefits of therapy. Therapy is not just for people with mental illnesses, someone grieving a loss, or someone who experienced a trauma. Therapy is for anyone, even the well-adjusted person. I believe the benefits from therapy are vast and vary from person to person. For example, therapy can reduce stress, improve relationships, and help with decision-making.
In individual psychotherapy, we look at how you are currently living and clarify what is working for you and what you want to change. A therapeutic conversation heightens awareness of your feelings, thoughts, sensations and behaviors. With my support, you learn to use your growing awareness as ground for taking experimental steps in new enlivening directions. Our therapy process leads toward resolution, change and growth. I will help you apply what you learn in therapy to your daily life. Our working relationship is important, so the first step is to meet one another. I look forward to meeting you.
