About Kristin Lewis, Ph.D.

I believe that connection—to others, to community, to nature, to one’s body and inner world—serves as a foundation for well-being and meaning in life. Past experiences, inner conflicts, and the demands of daily life and relationships often reduce our capacity to form enduring connections. My work as your therapist is to learn about the ecology of your life and collaborate with you to deepen connections that will help you align your life with your values. I bring a curious and non-judgmental presence to the therapy process. I will offer new perspectives and emotional experiences to foster useful change in your life. 

My approach:

I work from an integrative perspective, rooted in relational and psychodynamic principles. I also draw on third-wave cognitive behavioral therapy interventions (i.e. mindfulness-based approaches, dialectical behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy). In my work with you, I will tailor interventions to your goals and needs. I attend closely to the therapeutic relationship while creating a caring, authentic atmosphere to help you learn to relate to yourself and others in new ways.

Professional background:

I earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The New School for Social Research. I also earned a master’s in General Psychology from The New School and a bachelor’s in Human Development and Psychological Services at Northwestern University. My graduate research focused on clinical applications of attachment theory, specifically on interventions to promote resilience in parents and children through increasing secure attachment relationships.

Prior to Madison Park Psychological Services, I worked in a variety of clinical settings including: the Brooklyn Veterans Hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital’s inpatient psychiatric unit, an adolescent rehabilitation and education center at Mount Sinai Morningside, and The New School Counseling Center. Across these settings, I received intensive training and gained experience in an array of therapeutic modalities for individual, group, family, and couples therapy. Currently, I specialize in working with adolescents, adults, and couples who are facing anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and recovery from trauma.
