Colette Dowling, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
Do you feel alone with your problems, or stuck in self-defeating patterns of behavior? So much healing can come from a relationship with a compassionate and skilled therapist.I find it thrilling to witness my patients' transformation into confident, caring adults who sustain positive relationships and feel emotionally grounded in the world. When trauma is healed and depression and anxiety lift, a joyous way of living becomes possible. This joy is what I hold in my heart and mind for my patients. In the calm safety of my office we'll work together to bring positive change your life.
The therapy I offer is based in attachment theory. It helps people develop a deep self-acceptance and compassion; both necessary for sustaining positive relationships. I also treat trauma, PTSD, and grief and loss. Treatment approaches such as EMDR and AEPD can actually help the brains of the traumatized heal.
A psychoanalyst and therapist with special training in treating anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, I've also written a number of psychologically oriented books, including The Cinderella Complex, ( published in 23 languages), and "You Mean I Don't Have to Feel his Way?": New Help for Depression, Anxiety and Addiction.:
