Asian Therapists NYC
Searching for the right therapist can be a scary and challenging process, particularly for Asian, South Asian Americans, and Asian Americans.
You may be struggling to find someone who recognizes your lived experiences and cultural hardship. Perhaps seeing other therapists left you emotionally exhausted as you tried to familiarize them with your background. Or maybe you haven’t tried therapy yet, but you are curious and longing to feel seen by someone who “gets it.”
If you are looking for Asian, South Asian, or Asian American therapists who can provide culturally sensitive care, we are here for you.
At Madison Park Psychological Services, we offer a comprehensive range of therapy services for teens and adults in NYC and its nearby areas. Our diverse team includes Asian American, Asian, and South Asian therapists who understand and honor your unique heritage, identity, and values.
Our Asian Therapists in NYC
A solid client-therapist relationship is the foundation of your healing journey.
While your therapist doesn’t need to be where you are from, look exactly like you, or have the same experiences, having a culturally sensitive and responsive therapist does make the difference. It allows you to be vulnerable and embark on treatment without fear of judgment or the burden of educating them.
Our Asian therapists are deeply knowledgeable about Asian culture, its unique values, dynamics, and nuances. They also recognize how external stressors and systemic forces can affect Asian communities and their mental health (e.g., racism, immigration, intergenerational trauma).
We have experience working with people of Asian heritage of different ages, socioeconomic, gender, sexual, and spiritual backgrounds. This includes therapy for Asian students, immigrants, refugees, and trauma survivors. Our counseling services are offered in multiple languages (English, Spanish, Mandarin, French, Farsi, Arabic) and formats (individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, and group therapy).
We strive to tailor treatment to your story, identity, and goals, encouraging you to show up as you are. There is no need to “water down” or minimize your experiences in the therapy room. This is a safe and candid space for you to open up, connect, and explore.
Conditions Treated by Our Asian Therapists
Asian, Asian Americans, and South Asian Americans experience similar mental health challenges as other communities in the U.S. (e.g., anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues). Yet, they may also endure an added layer of difficulties, including oppression, racism, violence, trauma, religious intolerance, strict family expectations, and more.
Here at Madison Park Psychological Services, we understand that asking for help is not easy. You may struggle to find an Asian therapist or face language and cost barriers. You might also feel uncomfortable speaking about your problems if mental health issues are overlooked, set aside, or seen as taboo in your culture.
Please know your concerns are valid and genuine. We are here to provide affordable and accessible treatment with empathy and humility, no matter what’s troubling you.
Our Asian and Asian American therapists can help you with a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:
Severe and uncontrollable anxiety may rule your days and nights, but it doesn’t have to. Whether you feel constantly worried, irritable, or on edge, anxiety therapy can help you relieve distress and find inner peace.
Recurring or occasional panic attacks can be extremely debilitating for your mind, body, and spirit. We can help you explore your triggers, reveal underlying issues, and gain skills to manage your symptoms when the rush of fear strikes.
As hopelessness, lack of motivation, and deep sadness take over, everyday activities might become quite challenging. Depression therapy can empower you to restore hope, meaning, and joy for a fulfilling life.
Every relationship faces distinct hurdles. Whether you want to reconnect with your significant other, strengthen a bond with a loved one, or form new connections, therapy can support your relational needs to improve your well-being.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors can turn into a vicious cycle, affecting your ability to study, work, interact, and function. OCD therapy allows you to gradually expose yourself to triggers in a safe space to address your compulsions and alleviate your symptoms.
Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Dangerous or distressing experiences like loss, violence, or abuse can linger, leaving lasting post-traumatic stress. We can help you explore and heal unresolved wounds so you can pave the way forward and reclaim your life.
Your safety is our top priority. If you are struggling with suicidal or self-harming thoughts, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) or Suicide and Crisis Lifeline (988) immediately.
Forms of Therapy Offered by Our Asian Therapists
Our Asian therapists are trained in a wide range of therapeutic modalities. We may focus on one method or draw from different ones to suit your individual needs and help you reach your goals.
Regardless of the specific approach(es), we will always consider your whole self—body, mind, spirit, cultural background, values, and identity.
Some of the psychological modalities our Asian therapists offer include:
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (also known as CBT) is an effective treatment method for stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, OCD, trauma, insomnia, and other challenges. We can help you shift unhealthy patterns and manage your symptoms by looking at how your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors affect one another.
Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (or DBT) blends Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with core skills to help you address anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, relationship problems, self-destructive behaviors, and more. This method involves building mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness to improve your quality of life.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (also known as ACT) is a form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that combines mindfulness and value-oriented practices to accept painful experiences and engage in healthier habits. By acknowledging and separating yourself from your challenges and committing to mindful action, you can navigate anxiety, depression, eating disorders, OCD, trauma, and other issues.
Psychodynamic therapy aims to explore your subconscious and past experiences to help you identify patterns and find relief. This depth-oriented approach can support you with various mental health challenges, including anxiety, stress, depression, panic attacks, trauma, relationship issues, and other problems.
Holistic therapy focuses on treating you as an integration of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being. This modality looks at how each part works together to help you gain awareness, accept your whole self, and learn body-mind-spirit techniques to feel better.
Working With Our Asian and Asian American Therapists
Our team of licensed Asian American, Asian, and South Asian therapists is here to support you and equip you with tools to achieve true transformation. We offer psychological services and assessments in various languages to accommodate your needs.
Our process begins with a consultation, where we get to know each other and discuss your concerns. We will also explain our process and services and answer any questions you may have. If you seek an Asian therapist, we’ll pair you with one that best suits your situation and goals.
You will meet with your therapist in a one-on-one, couple, group, or family setting, depending on the selected service(s). Sessions will be scheduled regularly in person and/or online via teletherapy. We’ll collaborate to establish the length and frequency of treatment that works best for you.
