Emy Zener

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW-R

I am a psychotherapist with 19 years of experience in the NYC area working with diverse adult clinical populations. I specialize in treating sensitive, often creative people who are stuck in negative patterns due to past traumas. My particular areas of expertise include mood disorders, trauma, and co-occurring disorders, along with fertility, pregnancy, pospartum, and parenting issues, especially the stressors related to parenting special needs and twice-exceptional ("2e") children. I use a range of modalities (including DBT, CBT, mindfulness-based, psychodynamic) and bring my arts background to my work, employing a unique combination of warmth, empathy, creativity, and humor to help guide my clients towards reaching their goals and getting "unstuck" regardless of diagnosis. After about 19 years of community mental health work, I now run a private practice in Washington Heights.
