More Info About My Practice

Douglas Psychotherapy was founded in 2005 out of a desire to create a different kind of private psychotherapy experience, one in which the most recent evidence based practices and more traditional psychodynamic psychotherapies go hand in hand while also offering innovative prevention resources that support wellness and thriving.

Our practitioners are an interdisciplinary multi-specialty suite of independent providers with locations on the upper east side and midtown.
