Announcement icon To protect the health of all New Yorkers we have switched all sessions to telemedicine. We have new appointments open and are here for you.
Maybe people accuse you of being paranoid when really they are at fault. Maybe you are hearing talking or having other unusual experiences, that are freaking you out or stopping you getting things done. Maybe you are concerned for a loved one, who seems to be experiencing these things and you don't know how to help? You are not alone! I will hear your out and begin to help you make sense of what is happening. I use a therapy called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy which has been proven to be effective for this, giving you tools to manage stressors yourself without having to be in therapy for ever.
You will begin to learn strategies to help feel calmer and more safe. We will figure out what is getting in the way of your goals and how to overcome those obstacles (or survive them). I will not tell you that you are sick, wrong or bad. You will feel understood.
As a group practice we have helped hundreds of people with unusual experiences overcome their distress and achieve their goals, without shame or stigma. We also have Dr. Roshane Wright and Dr. Lauren Gonzales, so we can offer you a convenient appointment time. Reception will take your call or you can easily schedule through our website.

Professional Connections

I had the pleasure of working and collaborating with Dr. Riggs at Kings County Hospital Center, where we were both supervisor psychologists. Dr. Riggs is a compassionate and intelligent person who aims to empower her patients with skills and techniques that directly address their most difficult concerns. She has a gift in helping others understand the complexity of mental health issues, and helping them cope with their difficulties in a down-to-earth, personable manner.

I have worked with and admired Dr. Riggs for the past 4 years. I find her to be an accessible clinician with astute observations and assessments. I recommend her strongly, having observed her application of CBT for psychosis to be successful.
