Anne Mascia

(LCSW, RYT)

About Me

I am a personal counselor licensed in New York with over 8 years of experience working in human services, pyschoeducation, therapy, social worker, and mindful yoga instruction. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including: anxiety, depression, grief and loss, spirituality, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma or abuse.

My counseling style is solution focused and strength based; as not to disregard the past, sometimes we need to go there to find peace and closure, but with the intention of empowering you towards your future. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, energetic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am ready to meet you where you are at, when you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Anne is fantastic. I have experienced counselors in the past who came across condescending, but Anne has been nothing but patient & kind. I feel respected by her and in turn I respect her feedback immensely. I’m so thankful for my experience with her!

I enjoy my sessions with Anne. She always seems to ask the right questions and gives me the time to reflect on them.

Anne is an excellent counselor who listens intently, gives good advice, and almost always remembers the conversations held. I would strongly recommend her.

Anne is wonderful! She is a fabulous listener and is able to provide insightful perspectives and make connections that I didn't recognize, myself. She has helped me enormously in recognizing and working towards diminishing negative self- talk and cutting down on bad tendencies. Thank you Anne!

Written by M.A. on Apr 30, 2019 after counseling with Anne for 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, and self esteem

Anne has helped me so much. After years of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy she saw my need for Trauma Therapy and has helped me heal myself. She may only be human, but she is the best kind of person. I only wish I could express how much she has actually helped me. Plus sometimes taking a break from the big stuff she will see my need for some causal chit chat to keep things light after some seriously heavy things. Anne please keep being the amazing you that you are. And thank you so much for helping me, I could never thank you enough!

Anne really helped me get over my break up. I was very indecisive for 3 months but Anne asked the right questions to put everything in perspective for me. She was respectful, timely and I would recommend her to anyone. A++

Anne is very open and honest. Knows how to explain things in a way to help you look at yourself first to make sure that you're perspective is clear.

Written by E.L. on Nov 13, 2018 after counseling with Anne for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Anne has been so great for me. I've been seeing her for about a year now, and she's someone I click with very well. She has said some really profound things that have really helped me and stick with me. In addition, she knows what questions to ask me when I might be stuck, and overall, she's incredibly understanding and patient with me. I can't say enough about Anne!

She is amazing- she is helping me in ways I never thought of.

Written by D.O. on Aug 07, 2018 after counseling with Anne for 8 months on issues concerning relationship, and family

Been talking with Anne since start of the year, and she is very easy to communicate with. She understands what your problems and concerns are and fully supports them, but what I respect the most is that she will be completely honest with you and not hold back, which is what you want in a therapist. I feel so much better after our sessions and will continue.

Written by J.A. on Jul 31, 2018 after counseling with Anne for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, eating, self esteem, career, and bipolar

I’ve been working with Anne for 3 months. I feel as if she has helped me so much! She has encouraged me to look past my diagnosis and focus on healing and living in the now, and not dwelling on my perceived failures in the past.I have had several in person therapists in the past and I continued feeling discouraged because I felt they weren’t really grasping my feelings. In contrast, Anne genuinely listens and has meaningful insight regarding my feelings. She encourages me not to judge how I’m feeling. Anne has helped me draw connections with my emotions and behaviors which I had not realized on my own. Although I have only been working with Anne for a short amount of time so far, I have started to truly feel as if my mental health recovery is possible.

Written by T.Y. on Jun 09, 2018 after counseling with Anne for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

After every session with Anne, I feel newly empowered and confident. She's given me so many tools to look into myself to figure out what I want and who I want to be. I feel so comfortable being my worst and my best and everything in between and I look forward to our sessions each week.

Written by D.A. on May 13, 2018 after counseling with Anne for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, self esteem, and career

I've been working with Anne for 7 months now. This is my first time in my life that I've asked for help. I'm currently living the hardest and life changing moments of my life. Anne has been a steady rock for me. She listens, cares, and is honest with me at every turn. She helps me to think differently about my life, mood, feelings, and my thoughts. In her guidance, she has given supportive reading, insights, and conversation to help plug into what is going on around me and she gives nothing but constructive positivity in my life. I'm fortunate to have met and be guided along my path by her.
