This year, our Downtown NYC therapy practice has grown significantly, which has pushed us to add some more talented therapists to our staff. This has allowed the practice to not only grow in number, but in our approach to therapy. We’re excited to introduce Kelly Scott, LMHC, our newest member of the staff at Tribeca Therapy. Whether treating an individual, or in couples therapy or family therapy, Kelly sees her role as a psychotherapist as a partnership to help others access their resilience and guide them toward more deeply satisfying lives and relationships.
As with all our hires at Tribeca Therapy, we look for therapists with impressive expertise in their fields. As a therapist, Kelly has guided patients through a wide range of issues, including terminal illnesses, addiction, loss, family conflict, depression, anxiety, adoption-related challenges, relational trauma, and involvement with the justice system. She has also spent years working with families of all types, witnessing how issues like substance use, divorce and separation, sibling conflict, and significant transitions can keep families from running smoothly and happily. Aside from her practice of therapy, Kelly has also supervised and trained other clinicians. She is trained in a number of evidence-based techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and has also practiced Functional Family Therapy, a model that relies on strengthening family relationships in order to influence problem behavior, including trauma, aggression and violence, substance abuse, mental health diagnoses/symptoms, and educational deficits.
Even with this background, Kelly, like our staff as a whole, doesn’t practice a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, understanding that a balance of leadership and humility is required to help others. Knowing that being open to new perspectives and strategies can be both exhilarating and intimidating, Kelly builds a trusting therapeutic relationship in the therapy room that balances respect, collaboration and challenge, allowing for some of the toughest topics to be brought out of the shadows.
