About

Have you been feeling stressed out or anxious lately? Perhaps you are feeling depressed or having trouble with relationships. Maybe you just want to feel more fulfilled in life. You might be worried about your adolescent. Maybe you've been told by your child's school that his/her behavior is out of control or that he/she seems depressed. Perhaps they are being bullied, cutting themselves or suffering from low self-esteem. My name is Alison Varianides and I am the Founder of Westchester Psychotherapy- a Private Group Practice specializing in the treatment of children, adolescents and adults.
Specialized practitioners of Westchester Psychotherapy are highly trained and experienced and work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues in a relaxed and comfortable setting. We offer a variety of therapeutic approaches to include Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused, Art, Supportive, Eclectic.
Our goal is to help you create a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle and to teach you the tools you need to maintain this lifestyle after you leave therapy. A Group Practice allows individuals and families to be able to receive a multitude of services at ONE location.
