Therapy in NYC & All New York

Life Can Be Hard, Therapy in NYC Makes It Easier


No where in the manual of life does it say we won’t fall on hard times. In fact, ask just about anyone and hard times often swirl around us.

Anxiety about the future, sadness and grief about loss or relationships that didn’t work out, trauma from your past, or even how you manage your day-to-day stress can wear you down. These are just a few of the many reasons why people seek therapy.

As an NYC therapy practice, we have witnessed how hard the past few years have been. So whether your life is in a particularly challenging place (work, health, family, or love) or you just don’t feel as happy as you want to be, we can help.

If you made it to this page, you’re looking for a great therapist. NYC therapists come in many shapes and sizes, but the Modern Intimacy clinicians have something a little special: the ability to help you with the biggest pains in your heart and mind, and help empower you to live a healthier life.

Chances are, you’ve been looking for a therapist in NYC for sometime. Maybe you’ve seen a few therapists and felt misunderstood, or as if you couldn’t quite be yourself or tell the full truth.

As a therapy practice, all Modern Intimacy clinicians pride themselves on creating the safest, most open space for you to heal trauma, relationship heartache, and wounds that keep you from living a full life.

We are an intimate practice, helping clients one at a time to reach their full potential and live their greatest life. 

If you’re ready for this kind of integrity, support, and honesty from your therapist, we would love to speak to you.

We do not have a waitlist and can schedule with you right away. 

At Modern Intimacy, our therapists vary in credentials, experience, areas of specialty, and types of therapy they use in session. We can help you find the right therapist who fits your needs and your schedule. The process begins by scheduling a free 30-minute consultation with our Intake Specialist.

During this call, we will learn more about your goals and ask specific questions to ensure we are aligning you with a therapist who is a good match for your needs. If you have any questions about our services, fees, therapists, and whether health insurances can be used, please bring those up on our call so we can explore your therapy needs together.
