Counselor/Therapist, LMSW
 therapist: Truth Berenson,
In-Person in New York City, NY

I offer counseling and coaching for individuals of all genders, sexualities, racial identities, and family formations. My work is rooted in developing a strong therapeutic relationship. Within the counselor-client connection, clients are invited to explore relational dynamics and to safely become more honest with themselves and others. Through collaboration, I support clients to clearly identify boundaries, honor desires, and expand their capacity to tap into innate resources. My approach is informed by psychodynamic theory, spiritual and archetypal counseling, parts work, creative arts therapy, and goal-oriented coaching in addition to somatic interventions. These coupled with a client-centered and anti-oppressive lens facilitate changes that are both radical and sustainable. Areas of specialty include: pandemic stress, partnership and family conflict, self doubt, guilt & shame, eating disorders & body image, gender, sexuality, LGBTQIA+ experiences, transitioning, PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, addiction, attachment, suicidality, polyamory, family dynamics, interpersonal and communal conflict, spiritual growth, strengthening intuition, political identity, financial stability, transitions, and creative blocks. ​ My therapeutic style is intuitive, fierce, and nurturing. With passion and humor, I approach each person with deep respect for the grace and grit of human experience and an abiding trust in each individual's capacity for growth and resilience. I also support couples struggling to navigate both the inevitable and unexpected challenges of partnership. Every partnership has unique strengths and challenges and even the strongest relationships sometimes need help weathering life's hardships, be they related to health concerns, finances, sexuality and intimacy, children, work stress, extended family, etc. Couples counseling can help partners improve communication, develop a deeper understanding of each other's experiences, increase awareness of intentions and impact, and relate to each other with compassion and curiosity rather than judgment. I support couples to make collaborative decisions and move through conflict with courage, honesty, and mutual respect. ​Partners learn communication and deescalation skills, develop resiliency, and grow as individuals and partners. Together we can identify and heal attachment wounds, explore power dynamics, and build trust.
