Not Currently Accepting New Patients in our NYC Office

I place a premium on developing insight as we work together to help you learn what obstacles stand between you and the fulfillment of your needs. Insight occurs when we use therapy to begin to uncover the themes in your experiences.

I provide you with feedback about what is unique and useful about how you interact with others and what might be holding you back. Ultimately, my goal in therapy is to help you engage in more enriching relationships.

Heather Z. Lyons, Ph.D., Therapy Group of NYC

My goal is to accompany you through the sometimes difficult truths that we will confront together in therapy to help you move beyond painful feelings or events.
