Esther Gottlieb


About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York with more than 5 years’ experience working as a therapist and Social Worker. I have worked with children, adolescent, adults, couples and families who are faced with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship difficulties, LGBTQ related issues, OCD, ADHD, career challenges and parenting stresses. I have also helped people who have experience trauma or emotional abuse and have provided a safe space to work through sensitive issues.

My counseling style is supportive, non-judgmental, empowering and interactive. Using evidence based practices, we will identify your skills and strengths then help you identify and practice things that can get you unstuck. My treatment approach utilizes cognitive based, solution focused and mindfulness based interventions which when combined are used to develop a person centered, individualized treatment plan that is specific, relevant and achievable.

Whatever struggles or challenges you face, we can navigate them together. Looking forward to working with you!

I just started my first therapy session ever and was luckily paired with Esther for assistance. She asks the right questions and confirms what I'm feeling without being judgmental. Highly recommend her since she is easy to talk to and is almost always available.

Esther is wonderful. She listens intently and lets you get as deep into detail as you need. Her ability to keep you on an even keel is amazing and she provides incredible insight on thoughts on my issues. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a counselor to utilize her skills as a counselor, she was amazing.

Esther is incredibly professional and conciliatory. She asks useful and directed questions that serve to provoke thought and give behavior choices that can be applied in subsequent encounters. I have found our discussions rather helpful.
