How we Can Help

Our therapists offer services for a wide range of mental health challenges that affect New Yorkers on a daily basis. Some of these include:


Couples Therapy

Relationships are complex, and sometimes, seeking unbiased outside assistance can help overcome obstacles and issues. Whether you are looking to resolve conflict, trying to rebuild or strengthen a relationship, or needing to find common ground with differing expectations, couples therapy can help you enhance your communication, deal with conflict and work together to maintain a healthy relationship.


When stress begins affecting your quality of life and decreases your ability to function effectively, it could be a sign to speak to a therapist. Therapy can provide you with the proper tools to address and manage stress. Our therapists can help you find a resolution that will give you more peace and allow you to deal with your stress in a healthy and sustainable way.


Our psychiatrists are licensed medical doctors who can prescribe medications. Psychiatrists are specialists in diagnosing and treating mental health disorders. A psychiatric consultation aims to empower and educate you on all your care options so that you can make an informed decision about your health.


When ADHD symptoms affect your ability to function day-to-day, it can negatively impact multiple areas of your life. While the causes of ADHD can vary from one person to another, ADHD treatment can help you to understand and manage your symptoms, giving you the tools you need to improve your quality of life.

Life Coach

We provide life coaching services that will help guide you through your unique circumstances and difficulties and create a pathway for you to set and accomplish your personal and professional goals. Qualified psychologists and therapists work closely with you to help you reach your full potential and make positive, lasting changes in your life.

Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy

If phobias or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are negatively affecting your life, virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) allows you to confront your fears from the safety of our New York offices. We use state-of-the-art technology to create realistic yet safe situations to treat and manage phobias and PTSD.

Firstly, you can choose your preferred therapist directly from our providers page and select “book an appointment”. Alternatively, click on the “Request Appointment” button on our homepage, then complete a short questionnaire that asks about your therapy needs, and your preference in a therapist’s age, gender, and therapeutic style.

How much is therapy in NYC?

The cost of therapy in NYC varies widely based on factors such as the therapist’s level of experience, specialization, the length of the session, and any special psychological treatments needed. Generally, the cost can range anywhere from $100 to over $500 per session. At Thriving Center of Psychology, we value providing high-quality care while being mindful of the financial considerations for our clients. Our session fees fall within the range of $100 to $400, depending on the specific provider and the type of service chosen. While we are an out-of-network provider, our dedicated team will assist you in understanding your benefits and guide you through the process of insurance reimbursement, if applicable. Whether you’re seeking individual, couples, or group therapy, we are committed to ensuring you receive the best possible care tailored to your needs.

Why do most therapists in City, State not take health insurance?

In New York City, prioritizing therapeutic service quality often means therapists opt out of accepting insurance. This decision stems from insurance companies’ restrictive practices concerning coverage and reimbursement rates for mental health services. Therapists in-network tend to be overworked and underpaid, which may not be feasible for providers living in cities such as NYC.

At Thriving Center, our decision to be out-of-network has allowed us to take really good care of our therapists, so they can, in turn, take really good care of you. Being out-of-network means our therapists can spend more time giving you the tailored care you need without being overworked.

How much does insurance cover for therapy sessions out-of-network?

The amount that insurance covers for out-of-network therapy sessions can vary depending on your insurance plan and the specifics of your coverage. In general, insurance plans will cover a percentage of the cost of out-of-network therapy sessions, usually ranging from 50% to 80% of the fee for services.

Does insurance cover online therapy?

Yes, many insurance plans do cover online therapy, also known as teletherapy or telehealth. At Thriving Center of Psychology, we do not currently accept insurance, but we can provide you with a detailed invoice that you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. Many insurance plans now cover online therapy services, so if you have out-of-network benefits, you may be able to receive coverage for your online therapy sessions.

How do I schedule my first therapy appointment?

To schedule your first therapy appointment, click on the “Request Appointment” button on our website. Our short questionnaire form will allow you to provide important information about your therapy needs. Our expert client coordinator will then meet with you to recommend a therapist best suited for you based on your responses and answer any questions about starting therapy.

If you already know what therapist you’d like to work with, simply go to the therapist’s provider page and select the ‘Book Now” button in their profile.

What can I expect from my first therapy session?

The first appointment with a therapist typically involves getting to know each other and setting goals for therapy. Your therapist will ask about your background, current situation, symptoms, coping strategies, and therapy goals. Using this information, they will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Choosing the right type of therapist depends on your individual mental health needs, challenges, and goals. Couples therapy can help with relationship difficulties and communication breakdowns, while family therapy can improve communication and resolve conflicts between family members. At Thriving Center of Psychology, we offer a range of therapy services for adults, including couples therapy and family therapy. Our licensed therapists are dedicated to providing evidence-based, personalized care to help you achieve your best possible mental health. Contact us today to learn more about our therapy services and find the right therapist for you.

What is the difference between a therapist and a psychologist in NYC?

Psychologists are therapists with doctoral degrees. While the term “therapist” is a general term for professionals who see clients in a clinical setting. All of the therapists at Thriving Center of Psychology have acquired, at minimum, a Master’s degree and are considered experts in their field.
