About Will Holland, M.Phil.

I practice from a patient and caring stance that allows me to understand who you are and gives you the room to come to know all of yourself. I believe that our therapeutic relationship can bring about a space of safety and challenge, exploration and reflection. My aim is that you will find yourself authentic in relationships, will feel relief from the burden of difficult feelings, and will live a rich life full of meaning. Humor, spontaneity, and playfulness are serious business here, too. I believe that growth comes as much from our play as from our reflection.

My Approach:

As a therapist, I have a strong grounding in psychodynamic theory and technique that informs how I listen to you and understand your life story. I tailor therapy to meet the needs of each person through a collaborative, integrative approach, drawing on techniques from the evidence-based practices of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mentalization-Based Therapy (MBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I strive for cultural humility and hold an affirming, sensitive stance in meeting with individuals from all backgrounds, of all identities.

I see adolescents and adults in individual, group, and couples psychotherapy, and I conduct neuropsychological assessments for people of all ages. I help people who are facing challenges such as depression and anxiety, trauma, relationship and intimacy issues, major life transitions including the transition to parenthood, chronic illness, body image concerns, and personality disorders. As an interpersonal group therapist, I work with individuals who want to discover how they relate to others and who seek feelings of connection and belonging.


Professional Background:

I am completing my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at The City College of New York. I received my undergraduate degree in Classics from Bowdoin College and worked in outdoor education and wilderness therapy for many years. I have specializations in both short- and long-term individual psychotherapy for adolescents and adults, group psychotherapy, consultation, and neuropsychological assessment. My prior work experience includes many years at The Psychological Center, a community mental health clinic in West Harlem, and the Queens College Counseling Center, where I worked as a CUNY Clinical Psychology Fellow. My dissertation explores the roles of identifying, processing, and expressing feelings as a form of emotion regulation in driving psychosocial improvement for adolescents in the context of nature-based therapy.
