Making real change through psychotherapy for anxiety, depression, and relationship issues is possible. We will work collaboratively with you to find the appropriate client-therapist fit and the right course of treatment for your unique, individual needs.

Do you want to connect with your most authentic self?

We know there is a lot of stigma attached to seeking help for mental health reasons. At Behr Psychology, we combat this stigma by providing judgment-free, inclusive, and culturally sensitive therapy.

All of our therapists are relatable, authentic, and insightful clinicians who understand what it is like to be a patient. Yes, we provide therapy but we strive to understand who you are, not as a patient but as a whole person.

How We Work

We specialize in many forms of therapy and are heavily influenced by psychodynamic psychotherapy and attachment theory. All of our therapists also have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) among other disciplines.

Providing Useful Tools

We are equipped with many tools to help you achieve success in your life in whatever area you need help with most. Whether you are coming to our practice in NYC for anxiety therapy, depression therapy, couples therapy, or something else, we help you develop coping skills, build greater authenticity, and a better understanding of yourself.

Developing Goals

Our short-term goals are to assist you in developing coping skills and to provide you with time for self-care and self-reflection. Our long-term goals are to build insight and link current behaviors to past experiences. With this greater understanding of your internal experience, we aim to help you create a more conscious and deliberate approach to your emotions and your thoughts. 

Our Approach

This is not one-size fits all therapy. We curate a treatment specific to you.

What our clients say about us

I feel so fortunate that Dr. Behr was my first experience with therapy! She quickly made me feel comfortable enough to open up on difficult topics, and helped me navigate my feelings in thoughtful and productive ways. We explored areas I hadn’t even anticipated when first seeking therapy, and I regularly see the impact of our sessions in my day-to-day life. I couldn’t recommend Dr. Behr more!

- Verified Patient

Can't recommend Dr. Jessica Behr enough! She is compassionate, kind and weaves in therapy theory is a very digestible way. I've seen many therapists over the last 10+ years and have felt very comfortable with and understood by Dr. Behr.  by Dr. Behr.
