Treatment Modalities

 Our New York City therapists will work with you through a number of different therapeutic approaches to provide insight into your individual problems, whether that’s managing stress and anxiety from work or home, confronting and healing from trauma, or using therapy as a space to understand yourself better. One of our licensed clinical psychologists or licensed counselors will work with you through our treatment modalities as you gain the skills to navigate your unique challenges and ultimately live a more authentic life. Here are the methods we use:




Exposure Therapies


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) challenges the notion that how we feel now is how we’ll always feel. CBT is an evidence-based technique employed by our New York City therapists that helps you develop a healthier frame of mind, and challenges the way you think or react to situations.

Our Licensed Clinical Psychologists and Counselors use CBT to help reframe thought processes through a therapeutic lens and focus on setting and achieving actionable goals. CBT will help you learn to recognize distortions in your own thinking that could be causing problems, understand your own behavior, develop and use problem-solving skills, and build a greater sense of confidence.

Other treatment goals for CBT include facing your fears, using role play to prepare for potentially difficult meetings with others, and learning to calm your mind and relax your body during tense situations.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Mental health therapists use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, also known as DBT, to help their patients manage stress, live more “in the moment,” regulate their emotions and improve their relationships with others. This type of therapy sees wide use in the field of clinical psychology and is sometimes used to treat specific mental disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Using DBT, we can help you connect to your best self, one who lives without a turbulent emotional life. Contact us today, and we’ll put you in touch with our New York City therapists who will tailor your treatment plan specific to your goals and challenges.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)

If you’re struggling with your relationships, or you find that your interpersonal relationships are hurting your mental health, Looking Glass Psychology of NYC offers interpersonal psychotherapy services. IPT is an evidence-based approach to therapy that seeks to treat mental health concerns by improving interpersonal functioning. Many people benefit from IPT, and you could too, if you:

  • Feel lonely
  • Feel isolated
  • Just experienced the loss of a loved one
  • Are facing a significant relationship change, such as marriage or divorce
  • Are dealing with career changes
  • Have regret
  • Have interpersonal conflicts
  • Deal with a mood disorder
  • Are adjusting to a new city

Our New York City therapists will work with you on an individualized basis to help you build awareness around your thoughts and feelings, your mental health concerns, and ultimately help you develop better coping mechanisms. Your interpersonal goals are within reach at Looking Glass Psychology.

Exposure Therapy

Do you avoid certain objects, stimuli, or situations out of fear? Avoiding these things can help in the short term but in the long term, it can lead to anxiety, significant interpersonal issues, and conflicts. Exposure Therapy works to help patients confront and ultimately overcome their fears. In this form of therapy, you’ll be exposed to whatever you fear and avoid in a safe and highly-controlled environment. Repeated exposure can eventually reduce fear and avoidance, so you can start living a better life, and connect to the you that’s underneath the fear and anxiety.

Trauma-Informed Therapies

Trauma doesn’t have to come from one specific event — it can also build up over time through small micro-moments of trauma that can cost you your focus, your happiness, your interpersonal relationships, your career, and more.

Our trauma-informed therapies don’t simply follow a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we carefully tailor our interventions to your unique context, taking into account your personal history, experiences of trauma, triggers, and specific needs. This way, we ensure our treatment strategies align closely with you as an individual, not just a predefined intervention.

Our New York City Therapists will work with you and establish safe emotional and physical boundaries that allow you to explore the impact of the trauma on your emotions, regulations, and behaviors. All of our trauma-informed therapies revolve around:

  • Establishing physical and emotional safety.
  • Collaboration between you and your licensed clinical psychologist.
  • Transparency between our New York City therapists and you.
  • Competency and understanding of the most current techniques in trauma-informed therapies.

With time and guidance, you can heal and live a life free of flashbacks, panic attacks, brain fog, anxiety, guilt, shame, and all of the crippling symptoms that stem from trauma.
