Maryjane Nelson, LMSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
The therapeutic relationship is paramount to successful outcomes for clients. I provide a safe environment to develop relationship. You may be seeking therapy to address relationship problems, job issues, social anxiety or phobia, low self-esteem, generalized anxiety, coping with the loss of an important relationship or having to make significant life decisions. My style of practice is collaborative and supportive. I utilize psychodynamic psychotherapy, supportive counseling, cognitive behavioral interventions, and EMDR in my practice and have experience treating both males and females. Where appropriate FaceTime/phone sessios s are available.
What course of therapy - short term vs. long term, specific vs. ongoing issues, treatment plans and goals - are decided collaboratively. In my work with couples I use both the Gottman, I am level three Gottman trained, and Imago models to help with a lack of intimacy and passion, and better ways to deal with conflict.
I strive to provide treatment that is culturally informed and sensitive to religion, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. For out-of-network clients, I am able to submit claims to most insurance companies for payment directly to me. Your responsibility is then limited to your copayment.
