Welcome to Pleasantville Therapy. With locations in Pleasantville and Manhattan, and available for teletherapy in New York State, we are a group of clinicians who offer comprehensive psychotherapy, postpartum support, nutrition counseling, and speech-language services for children, adolescents, adults, and families. 

We believe that the therapy process shouldn’t be a mystery. Our clinicians work compassionately and collaboratively with clients to make positive life changes. We are committed to helping people manage anxiety and depression, change hurtful and unhealthy relationship patterns, and cope with stressful or challenging life events. Our skilled dietitian provides nutrition counseling and intuitive eating support in order to create a more positive relationship with food and their bodies. Additionally, our highly qualified speech therapist provides articulation and language therapy, as well pragmatic and social skills support.


We are here to support you. Contact us so we can begin making positive changes together.


At Pleasantville Therapy, we provide therapy services for individuals and families. Our treatment approach is active, supportive, and collaborative.


We provide evidence-based treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and PROMPT for speech production disorders. We believe that all treatment is based on a genuine personal connection through empathy, passion, and a sense of humor.
