Debra Carr, Psy.D. Psychologist in Manhattan and White Plains NY

“Begin to be now what you will hereafter.”

William James

Effective psychotherapy provides a safe and confidential environment to help people heal from pain or illness and cope with challenges in adaptive ways. Dr. Carr’s private practice provides teens and adults opportunity to be heard by a caring, supportive, and non-judging professional whose goal is to help ease pain and suffering in the process of supporting and enhancing one’s innate and resilient self.

Stress, anxiety, and depression can feel as if they “take over” over minds and bodies, disrupting our abilities to feel loved, capable, alert, happy, or connected. The “taking over” usually challenges our abilities to manage demanding careers, maintain intimate partnerships or marriage, achieve academic or career goals, care for ill loved ones, or take care of ourselves when we have our own pain or illness.

When stress doesn’t let up, or a sad mood or a period of slow productivity doesn’t seem to end, psychotherapy can be a safe, discreet, and supportive environment in which to further identify and understand elements contributing to the problems. Good therapy adds on to your mastered skills for effective problem-solving.
