Nancy Gershman, LMSW

Clinical Psychotherapist
Hi, I’m Nancy Gershman, a New York State-licensed social worker, with a Masters in Social Work from Columbia University, a Bachelor of Arts from Hampshire College, and training from the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy’s Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia. My practice focuses on adults (grief, loss and trauma issues that can present as anxiety, depression, dissociation and disordered eating/eating disorders) and couples (many struggling with feelings of disconnection and boundary disruptions).

My approach towards psychotherapy? I believe integrating psychodynamic and somatic approaches with the expressive arts ensures the best modality for the moment. I invite my clients to see it as collaborative detective work, with an ear attuned to the stories we tell ourselves, the burden of labels, and the communication styles that could be maintaining unhappiness. I pay special attention to a client’s openness to deep play, their sense of humor and religiosity/spirituality. In the end (and yes, there is always an end in sight!), the best healing comes from feeling safe enough with me to share your rules and emotional truth so that you can come to truly know and love yourself.
