Greek Therapists in NYC
Greek Therapists in NYC
«Η θεραπεία είναι θέμα χρόνου, αλλά μερικές φορές είναι και θέμα ευκαιρίας.» — Ιπποκράτης
Finding a therapist who affirms your cultural background can make you feel seen and supported.
But finding someone who also speaks your mother tongue can make all the difference in your healing process.
You might feel at home as you open up and share your story in your first language. Your therapist may be able to better grasp where you are coming from and where you’d like to go. And you can both have meaningful conversations without confusion or the need to fill in the blanks.
At Madison Park Psychological Services, we are committed to serving teens and adults in NYC and all around NY via teletherapy. Our team includes Greek therapists who are not only qualified to provide culturally diverse therapy but can also do it in Greek.
If you want to work with a Greek therapist who can truly understand you in your native language, we can help.

Our Greek Therapists Based in New York City
The Greek and Greek-American community may face unique stressors compared to other US groups: acculturation or multicultural issues, immigration difficulties, the aftermath of Greece’s financial crisis, a disinterest in seeking psychological help, and a preference to keep mental health issues behind closed doors, to name a few.
These, on top of anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems, and many other common challenges affecting Americans nowadays, can make life incredibly difficult.
We know how daunting it is to ask for support. But we also know that having a therapist who shares your heritage and speaks your language can make it less intimidating and foster a reliable therapeutic bond.
Our Greek therapists are fluent in Greek and deeply understand Greek culture, its traditions, social and historical aspects, and underlying challenges. They can provide Greek therapy and support Greek speaking clients in an individual, couple, family, or group setting, depending on their needs and goals.
Being flooded with worry, fear, and debilitating sensations can make you feel overwhelmed, restless, and out of control. Anxiety therapy will help you understand your symptoms, identify negative patterns, and restore harmony in your life.
When the rush of panic comes knocking, it can be challenging to find a way out. Therapy can support you in steering these frightening events, discovering underlying issues, and adopting practical coping strategies.
If low self-worth, lack of motivation or energy, and a strong sense of emptiness are clouding your days, you may be experiencing depression. Therapy offers a compassionate place to explore your thoughts and emotions, cultivate kindness, and recover your purpose.
All relationships may stumble—you may have conflicts with your relatives, experience trust or intimacy issues with your partner, or struggle to make new connections. Our therapists will assist you in managing your relationship problems and improving your skills for lasting bonds.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Obsessive thoughts may trigger compulsive actions to find quick relief, feeding a never-ending and harmful cycle. We’ll guide you to gain insight into these intrusive thoughts and urges and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Traumatic events may leave deep imprints in your path and prevent you from savoring life. Trauma therapy can help you gently face and process unresolved experiences to move forward.
Types of Therapy Our Greek Therapists Provide
We’ll match you with the therapist(s) and method(s) that better accommodate your background, needs, and objectives, always personalizing treatment to your whole being. But please, do not hesitate to ask if you are interested in a particular modality!
Our Greek psychologists offer the following types of therapy:
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a standard psychotherapy method that explores the connection between your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to see how they impact your well-being. We’ll highlight and reframe unhelpful patterns to address your symptoms and create better habits.
Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy mixes CBT with the development of four essential life skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. The goal is to nurture awareness, manage stressors, navigate overwhelming feelings, and enhance social skills.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy focuses on accepting what is, separating yourself from your thoughts and emotions, and welcoming the present moment with intention. It also guides you to play the “observer” role to have a broader perspective, and commit to value-based actions.
Psychodynamic therapy helps you peel your subconscious layers and life experiences to reflect on how they might have shaped your path. You can then use this personal insight to make necessary changes, solve problems, and learn effective coping skills.
Holistic therapy infuses talk therapy and body-mind-spirit practices to support your health. We’ll walk through your thoughts, feelings, sensations, beliefs, and essence to establish valuable connections, raise your awareness, and take the next steps to improve your well-being.
