About Kayla Gottlieb, M.A.

My goal is always to create a deep and connected feeling to each person I work with therapeutically; a sense of warmth, stability, and safety in the room. Through this bond, I believe an immense amount of growth, insight, and desired change can flourish. Navigating life’s challenges can feel exhausting and unclear, so I am here to help alleviate this burden and work towards an improved relationship with yourself and those around you. I believe in the special and resilient ability we all have to tap into our desired best selves and I am always inspired to be a part of the journey.

My Approach:

Although I was primarily trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, I work integratively and, most importantly, in a client-centered way; I base my approach on what is fitting for you. I often incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy approaches, DBT skills and principles, attachment theory, and emotionally focused therapy to understand and support my clients. I feel blessed to have been able to work with a diverse population of adolescents, adults, and couples with a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, OCD, and relational and identity issues. I care most about my clients feeling supported and heard, and I am always curious and open when trying to connect with those I have the privilege to work with.  


Professional Background:

I am currently a doctoral candidate in Clinical Psychology at the Derner School of Psychology at Adelphi University. I obtained my clinical and psychoeducational training at the Adelphi University Center for Psychological Services, Long Island Reach, Montefiore’s Supporting Healthy Relationships, Hero Dad’s, and Yeshiva University’s Counseling Center. Across my diverse training experiences, I honed various multi-modal therapeutic techniques and interventions. I look forward to bringing my specific experience to our work together in order to help meet your goals. My research centers on Orthodox Jewish women’s feelings around the Jewish Law system that dictates when couples can be intimate. This research is a conglomeration of my specific interests, intersecting religion, sexuality, and couplehood.
