"Therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix. It is a process of self-discovery, exploration, and healing. By identifying self-defeating behaviors and learning ways to cope with difficult feelings, you can see life-changing results. As a therapist, my goal is to support you through the ups and downs of your journey."

What To Expect During Therapy
I primarily take a psychodynamic and relational approach to therapy. Drawing from many different treatment modalities, I help individuals:
Better understand themselves, including their feelings, behaviors, and patterns
Learn skills to cope with stress, anxiety, depression, and other emotional pressures
Adopt new attitudes towards life situations
Develop self-acceptance, empowerment, and resilience
Navigate the process of healing
Experience greater fulfillment within themselves and in their relationships
The foundation of my work is the trusting, supportive, and collaborative relationship that I develop with my clients. Building this special relationship and tailoring a treatment approach to each individual are the keys to therapeutic success.
About Elizabeth Baron, LMHC
I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor and psychotherapist. I received a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Columbia University’s Teachers College.
With a primary focus on maternal mental health, I am passionate about the transition into and through motherhood-- from the preconception stage and pregnancy, through early childhood development and parenting. As a therapist at The Motherhood Center of New York, I developed my expertise in treating Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. I am deeply committed to destigmatizing maternal mental illness and helping women through all stages of motherhood, both in treatment and by advocating for their needs in the systems they are in.
I have worked in outpatient clinics, in day program treatment, as well as college and graduate student counseling programs focusing on attachment, difficult life transitions, family theory, and cross-cultural issues. These experiences have given me the unique ability to meet the diverse needs of women, adolescents, families and couples. With a lifelong interest in holistic health, I support the integration of different practices for optimal wellness and believe in coordinating care for the mind, spirit and body.
I am a member of Postpartum Support International, the American Psychological Association, and the Women's Mental Health Consortium.
