I have comprehensive experience working as a psychotherapist in both private practice and outpatient mental health clinics. I have worked with adolescents, adults, senior citizens, and with support groups with a wide variety of difficulties. My specialties include working with adults who are in unhealthy relationships, who have recognized unhealthy relationship patterns, and/or who are dealing with anxiety and depression, trauma, LGBTQ issues, sexuality and identity, grief and loss, low self-esteem, addictions, destructive behaviors, and obsessive and compulsive behavior or thinking.
I have been described as warm, humorous, thoughtful, sensitive, and easy to talk to. I draw upon eclectic modalities: psychoanalytic, insight oriented, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, mindfulness practices, and systems perspectives. I am committed to identify, encourage, and value your strengths and support you in improving your relationships to live a fuller, more satisfying life.
I am a Smith College School for Social Work alumnus and is affiliated with the Training Institute for Mental Health, where I earned a post-graduate certificates in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.

I believe therapy can offer an opportunity to find clarity, to better understand overwhelming experiences, as well as to grow from difficult times. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with their relationships, dealing with trauma, and coping with stress, anger, depression and anxiety. I also hold space for and invite the exploration and curiosity of one's relationship with their various identities, especially the relationship with whiteness and masculinity. Regardless of the struggle, I believe the most important piece of therapy is tailoring each individual's therapy to their unique needs in order to assist the growth and change necessary to feel better.
I have experience working with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress management, masculinity, sexuality, identity issues, becoming a new parent, fatherhood, life changes, grief and loss, and general feelings of being 'stuck.'
I earned my Masters of Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work and have a Certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from The Training Institute for Mental Health. I also incorporate mindfulness and meditation techniques as well as Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) into my work when appropriate.
Stacy Blumenreich, LMSW
My approach is warm, authentic, and non-judgemental. I work from a relational perspective, meaning together we will use curiosity to explore and understand your motivations, emotional reactions, and thought patterns.
I work with adults and college students experiencing anxiety, depression, OCD, emotional dysregulation, and relationship challenges. I am trained in psychodynamic therapy, as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and will approach our work together based on your individual needs.
My goal is to provide a space for you to reflect and process; to help you make the changes you have been wanting to make.
Lyla Denburg, LMSW
With the right safety and support, we all have the capacity to heal. I use experientially-oriented therapy to help you move through barriers so that you can arrive into your body with compassion and connection, explore your relationship to self and others. I offer a relational and collaborative approach that centers your specific needs and our distinct work together. I integrate specialized training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) with psychodynamic, mindfulness, attachment-based, and trauma centered approaches. I serve clients of all gender identities, sexual orientations, and relationship styles with a dedicated focus on LGBTQ+ communities. Above all, I'm dedicated to co-creating an environment of non-judgement and compassionate safety so that your courageous healing can come forth. From this place, we will come to understand patterns that create stuckness and practice new skills so you can embody insights, change, and self-belonging.
Katie Greener, LMSW
I believe that everyone deserves a safe space to explore their innermost thoughts, analyze their current struggles and embark on a path of self-growth and fulfillment. Therapy is a collaborative journey built on a strong foundation of trust and respect between the therapist and the client. My approach to therapy is integrative and client centered, drawing upon various therapeutic modalities to work towards fulfilling the unique needs and preferences of each client. I create a supportive, relaxed and compassionate environment where I work with my client to unearth sources of distress and navigate upcoming challenges.
After a career in advertising, I decided to go back to school to earn my Masters in Social Work from New York University. I received my clinical and therapeutic training at The Bridge, a community mental health agency. I have particular experience with individuals coping with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship issues and stress relating to life changes. Above all else, I am committed to providing a safe and confidential space where my clients can embrace vulnerability and explore their emotions.
I am currently accepting new clients for telehealth or in-person therapy sessions. Please reach out for a free 15-minute phone consultation where I can answer any questions you may have.
Zoe Malliaros, LMSW
Brooklyn & Saugerties (Telehealth Only)
I know that it can be hard to find a therapist who feels like the right fit, especially when you are overwhelmed by work or family, facing a significant loss, or feeling stuck in repetitive patterns. With compassion, patience, and authenticity, I aim to create a space for support and healing based on your unique needs and goals. My approach is relational, strengths-based, and rooted in deep respect for my clients. I work with adults who are feeling depressed, anxious, or struggle to navigate grief and loss, life transitions, relationships, parenting, trauma, guilt, and shame. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming and welcome clients of all identities.
My work draws upon several modalities that facilitate lasting change, including mindfulness, somatics and DBT. I am particularly interested in the unique ways we process grief, guilt, and trauma, and in helping my clients attune to their bodies. I specialize in supporting those grieving all losses, including anticipatory, ambiguous, and non-death losses.
I earned my Master's in Social Work from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College and have provided individual and group therapy in private practice, community health agencies and outpatient partial hospitalization (PHP) hospital settings. A former architect, I hold a Masters in Architecture from Columbia University and continue to consider how our physical and social environments affect us. I am familiar with high-pressure work, academic, and creative lifestyles.
Regardless of what brings you to therapy, I believe that we are all capable of growth and I welcome the opportunity to help you explore and move towards your goals. I am currently accepting new clients and would be happy to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation.
Anand Mukherjee, LMSW
Our world has become increasingly interconnected, yet ironically loneliness can still permeate even the most crowded rooms, leaving us feeling unseen, unheard, even alienated. In my experience working with a diverse population of individuals of all ages and backgrounds, I have found that sharing our stories in a safe, non-judgmental space not only brings relief and healing from the traumas of our past, but also helps us re-engage with the present and envision a hopeful future.
I am a psychotherapist working with clients remotely and in person at my office in the Park Slope neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. I am LGBTQ+ affirmative and welcome all individuals. My approach draws from a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic modalities including psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness practices, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I bring warmth, humor and experience as a parent and a creative professional to empower my clients to embrace their authenticity, find purpose, and manifest personal growth.
I earned my Masters of Social Work from Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Service and previously practiced psychotherapy at The Training Institute for Mental Health in Manhattan.

Raquel Soto, LMSW
I am a firm believer that by exploring unhealthy patterns, understanding overwhelming situations, in addition to providing guidance to manage day-to-day difficulties, individuals can heal, grow, and build resilience. Amongst others, I have experience in treating adults struggling with depressive, anxiety, and post-traumatic challenges. I have also helped individuals experiencing bereavement and grief, academic and occupational distress, difficulties in relationships, stress-related situations, and major life transitions.
Fostering an emotionally safe and free of judgment environment, I provide supportive counseling focusing on Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and using elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy as well as Problem-Solving and Strengths-Perspective interventions. I tailor the treatment to your individual needs.
I am a bilingual English/Spanish licensed psychotherapist with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Fordham University. I am also a member of the National Institute for Psychotherapies in a postgraduate program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and I have worked in the mental health field as a psychotherapist and educator for over 9 years.
Eve White, LMSW
We bring meaning to our lives through the questions we ask and stories we tell. While language may feel intangible, therapeutic conversation helps us reflect on and strengthen the narratives we use to make sense of our experiences. Recontextualizing the stories we tell ourselves can bring us greater clarity, ease, and self-compassion.
My therapeutic approach is empathetic, creative, and holistic. Our bodies shape the way we experience the world, and by mindfully attuning to our physiology, we gain knowledge essential for healing. I draw from a variety of modalities including psychodynamic and CBT, with a focus on attachment and adversity in childhood. I have particular experience working with people who identify as learning disabled or neurodivergent, as well as individuals coping with chronic illness. No matter how your unique healing journey unfolds, I strive to help you feel safe and supported as you embrace new opportunities for growth.
I am currently accepting new clients for telehealth and in-person appointments. If you are curious about starting therapy, please reach out. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have over a free 15-minute phone consultation.
