The Private Practice of
ALICIA HENRY, LCSW
psychotherapy /individual counseling
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker offering a supportive, safe and non-judgmental environment for clients to explore, understand, and resolve issues. My style is interactive and empowering. I believe therapy is an investment in yourself with tools, healing and support that can be carried with you throughout your lifetime. The benefits of individual psychotherapy include better adaptation to new challenges or transitions, healing from past experiences, greater insight and perspective about ones' self and family dynamics, stress reduction, and establishment of more meaningful, trusting relationships. Everything is connected; work, family, relationships-
Together, we will help you or your family member process life events, build self awareness, and stop feeling stuck!
Treatment specialization for psychotherapy includes:
Self Esteem / Confidence
Work & Career Development
Divorce & Breakups
Grief & Loss
Wellness Coaching (designed to help an individual make changes in his/her lifestyle to optimize the way he/she feels both on the inside and out).
As a LCSW I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including outpatient mental health clinics and hospitals. My post graduate training is vast with concentration in the areas of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, compulsions, palliative/end of life care, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and interpersonal psychoanalysis. For many years I have been employed at New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center as a key interdisciplinary team member who helps to assess and support patients undergoing treatment for both acute and chronic medical illness, and for those receiving an organ transplant.
My background as a Division I Collegiate Track & Field athlete has made me particularly interested in the relationship between our minds and bodies. I truly enjoy sharing the wealth of knowledge and skills I have learned from coaches, trainers and nutrition experts over the past 12 years to help people optimize their health and fitness goals.

services & insurance
-I offer individual, 45-minute sessions for teenagers (16+) and adults.
-I recommend weekly sessions for all new clients as it allows us to build a foundation and better address the areas you'd like to work on.
Walk and Talk Therapy
If the idea of sitting in an office doesn't appeal to you and you find that you're more "open" while taking a stroll or being outside, I offer "walk and talk" therapy. Typically, we will meet in Central Park in our casual walking attire and take a 45 minute walk at your chosen pace.
You'll get in some steps, increase your serotonin levels naturally and enjoy the great outdoors while receiving support, tools and non-judgemental feedback.
