Announcement icon I have openings for tele-therapy (video) and would be honored to support you during this unprecedented time.
During this uncertain time, getting extra support can be vital, and bringing this connection into your home, via teletherapy, can help. A number of my clients are people asking the "who am I" questions. Especially now. They’ve come to me to explore, express, and discover themselves, perhaps for the first time or perhaps as part of a lifelong process. Whether a difficult relationship, a loss or trauma, being new to NY, or feeling stuck in a career first sent them to me, what they all have in common is a desire to be and feel more authentic, more connected, more safe, and to live life with more ease and joy, more passion and purpose.
In addition to being a psychotherapist of 20+ years, I am also a dance-movement therapist & yoga therapist. So our sessions may incorporate movement, breath or meditations. These can be illuminating, freeing & powerful for self-understanding, healing & growth. Along the way, you will learn many tools to better navigate life's challenges & mysteries.
I believe therapy is a collaborative process. Whether we are doing teletherapy, traditional talk therapy, movement exploration or learning meditation techniques, our work is a cocreated journey of personal discovery. Whatever your goals, I will bring my presence, compassion and wisdom gained from >20 years of professional experience. Let's discover together.

Ricki Grater's Groups

Authentic Movement - 2 weekly women's groups

Authentic Movement is a body-oriented form of self-inquiry and discovery in which movers move with eyes closed in the presence of a witness, contacting the inner impulse to move and be moved. In this process of waiting for what authentically unfolds, one's true nature is brought to light. As the body finds form for the expression of what is at first formless, integration is promoted and personal consciousness evolves. An environment of safety, trust and space for free self-expression is the focus of our work together.

More about this group

Kundalini Women's Group (once/month)

Kundalini Yoga is a powerful form of yoga that uses codified combinations of postures, movements, mantra, mudra, and breath to get specific results. More than any other form of yoga, Kundalini Yoga goes deeply into the nervous system and affects our emotional, mental and energetic bodies as well as our physical body. This once/month group offers a special opportunity to gather with other women, share, do powerful, transformative yoga, and then connect over tea and snacks. Each month is a different topic. Each gathering is a workshop in and of itself.
