Although it may be hard to believe now, we will build upon your current strengths to help you create a fun and fulfilling life.

My therapyy style is collaborative and strength-based. I want the people I work with to feel confident in their abilities and motivated to pursue their goals.

As a psychologist, I want to help you recognize the value of your emotional experiences and to gain a sense of self and autonomy from therapy.

Rukiya King, M.Phil., M.A., Therapist NYC

I love that psychology full of passionate people about what they do and the people they serve. I look forward to hearing your life stories and helping you reach your full potential.
