Heather Coleman, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
I am a Buddhist-oriented psychotherapist, also offering Neuroptimal Neurofeedback in my work with clients. Most people want to be happy, but unhelpful ways of thinking, feeling and acting become obstacles to our growth. Our job is to uncover and rediscover inner resources that can help you meet your goals and get unstuck from habitual patterns. I am active in my work with clients and use the here-and-now experience as a guide in our work together. My ideal client is one that is motivated for change and engaged in "the work."
My approach is practical. We collaborate together to find what works for you. We may work on having more fulfilling relationships, decreasing stress, informed decision-making, finding new ways to cope, increasing insight and/or becoming more mindful in day-to-day living.
I work especially well with ACOAs (adult children of alcoholics), addiction & those in relationship to people struggling with addiction. To learn more about Neurofeedback and how it can help, visit www.neurofeedbacktraining.com.

Heather Coleman's Groups

Buddhist Psychotherapy Group

This is an on-going psychotherapy group focused on developing stronger intimate relationships with others. We will: 1) Learn to express emotions clearly and authentically; 2) Work with social anxieties in a safe environment; 3) Increase awareness of how we think, feel and act in relationship to others; 4) Develop deeper emotional bonds with others by using present-moment awareness and empathy. This is an on-going group that breaks in August, and once it reaches capacity it is a closed group of 5-8 people only.

More about this group

Adult Child of Alcoholics (ACOA) Support Group

This is a group for those affected by being raised in an "alcoholic household." The group will be especially helpful for those wanting to learn more about ACOA features (which are on a spectrum and vary from person to person), identifying similar patterns among members and offering support and connection to each other over personal experiences. The group will also offer the opportunity to booster strength and hope in members. It is also helpful for those that identify with Alanon, as well as those who do not; all are welcome.

More about this group

Mindful New Moms Group

A safe and supportive group for new moms (baby age 1 & under) to discuss parenting in a mindful way. Focus will be on 1) Increasing emotional intelligence in our parenting; 2) Coping with anxieties of being a new mother; 3) Processing familial history and how this may relate to our parenting style (and how we might want to change that!); and 4) Learning about and developing a meditation practice alongside our parenting role.
