Chris Panzica, LCSW

I am a New York City-based psychotherapist available for in person and online therapy. I approach therapy with compassion, care, and dedication. I work actively and collaboratively with my clients.


My treatment orientation incorporates intensive training in:


  • Gestalt Therapy (a holistic, present-centered, and relationship-focused approach)


  • Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy (a movement-based approach)


  • Contemplative Psychotherapy, which integrates mindfulness and compassion practices from Buddhist psychology with contemporary psychotherapy and neuropsychology.


These modalities provide a strong theoretical base and inform how I show up for clients, as a supportive other, invested in their unique experiences, challenges, and inherent worth. 


Adam J Shecter, LMSW, MSEd (he/him)  

I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ community. As a former educator, I have extensive experience working with young people and

specialize in issues related to adolescence, young adulthood, coming out, queer identities, perfectionism, self-image, and learning disabilities. My therapeutic practices connect current challenges with personal history, combining cognitive therapy with meditation and mindfulness training.

I believe that holistic therapy integrates the mind and body, the cognitive and the somatic. I also believe that with compassion and curiosity clients can both honor and understand their coping mechanisms. I draw from a variety of techniques, including meditation and mindfulness practices. I believe that the client is a powerful and resourceful agent of change. As a practicing artist and former educator, I draw from the power of creative exploration to gain insight into

our subconscious expressions.


My work draws from elements of art and narrative therapy, CBT, DBT, self-compassion, mindfulness practices, and radical acceptance.

Lauren Linn, LMSW (she/her) 

Hello! I am a holistic, solution-focused psychotherapist based in New York City. I practice through a social justice, trauma-informed, and Health at Every Size (HAES) lens. I create a therapeutic space that is grounded in empathy, collaboration, healing, and insight. A session with me will feel supportive and challenging — I will gently encourage you to embrace discomfort in order to move beyond the surface and find what lies beneath. From there, we will work as a team to process and heal what comes up — I hold the clinical expertise, and you the expertise on yourself.

I specialize in working with adults of all identities and have a particular passion for working with those managing anxiety, depression, eating disorders/disordered eating, body image, relationship issues, trauma/inner wounds, illness, gender, and sexuality. I use EMDR, CBT, IFS, CFT, ACT, Mindfulness, Mind-Body Therapy, humanistic and psychodynamic therapies.

All bodies and all identities within them are welcome and affirmed here.
