I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a private practice in Manhattan treating adults, adolescents, couples, and families. I have extensive experience working with issues related to intimacy, relationship difficulties, coming of age challenges, anxiety, depression, bereavement, parenting, infertility/pregnancy, and a number of other areas of concern.
My approach is casual, warm, supportive, and interactive. I am an empathic listener but also an active participant in the treatment and feel that challenging both the patient and myself is a necessary part of any growth process. Treatment is individualized, calling on my training in various psychodynamic theories and general curiosity and good humor. I understand that sharing your most intimate thoughts with someone else can be difficult, I hope to make this process easier for you by establishing a comfortable rapport and a safe therapeutic environment based on trust and mutual respect. From there, we can work together to address issues in both your past and present that are causing you distress.
Verified Patient Reviews
Patient, genuine, and overall just a true pleasure to work with.
Can't recommend highly enough. Has been a fantastic help and structures treatments around my specific needs. Additionally she was particularly great in the often uncomfortable "getting started" period of therapy.
I was hesitant to start therapy but Dr. Kopp-Smith really made me feel at ease. I feel like she listens and responds honestly and thoughtfully. She pushes me in a way that feels comfortable and is leading to growth.
