Stephanie Manes, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
Are you struggling in your relationships? Feeling overwhelmed by life but not sure how to move forward? Unable to break away from stress, sadness or loneliness? Or are you and your partner getting locked in old arguments, feeling far apart, or maybe aren't sure whether you should be together at all? Bumps in the road are inevitable. My job is to help you turn them into opportunities to heal and grow. We can work together to ask questions, find new meaning and to build creative solutions to old problems.
I help people struggling with relationships, professional, creative or family stresses, life transitions, or disordered eating and body image. As a couples therapist, I work with partners to improve communication, increase intimacy, or to co-parent more effectively. I provide premarital counseling and counseling for couples considering separation and divorce.
I am a certified couples therapist and analytically trained psychotherapist. I believe in the healing power of conversations. But your problems are unique and so our work will be too. You might want someone to just listen, and at other times, more feedback. We will always start where you are and work toward your goals.
