About My Staff



My name is Lauren, and I am a therapist under supervision at MyTherapist New York. In therapy, I utilize an integration of rational emotive behavior therapy and imago couples counseling. People are complex and often times the presented problem in therapy is just a small part of a much larger picture. I try to consider all aspects of their world and life including culture, family, tradition, health, barriers, economy, and so forth. It is important to me that I help others tap into mind, body, and spirit in order to gain a more rational outlook on themselves and the world. I strive to provide a warm, non-judgmental and supportive environment for healing.

We are influenced by norms that have been established for us as people, and when we do not adhere to society’s expectations about what ways and actions are acceptable, many problems arise in our lives. In therapy, the therapist can help to construct (with the client) a different and more favorable storyline from the narrative they have created. No one person’s idea of reality is better or more correct than any other, rather, each persons cultural, familial, and societal experiences creates a different reality for each individual. Therapy empowers the client to re-author their lives in order to develop their own alternative and unique stories that might not necessarily conform to societies expectations, but that the client will find works for them and not against them. I look forward to working with you!

My name is Sophie and I am a therapist in New York under supervision.  My passion is to help people gain perspective into their lives and develop the tools to become more self reliant. My work has included working with LGBT New Yorkers to Cambodian refugees and all sorts of people in between.

In therapy, we deal with issues ranging from intimacy and communication (couples therapy) body image issues/eating disorders, emotional conflicts like anger and anxiety, sexuality issues and more.

Therapy can benefit anyone who seeks insight and growth and with a culturally competent therapist, can translate to people from all walks of life.  Therapy is a collaborative process in a judgment free and supportive environment. Utilizing evidenced based psychotherapy, we want you to leave therapy equipped with real tools to face any challenge that comes your way. Even looking for a therapist is a great first step- go ahead and schedule and let's take the next step together.
