Mary Anne Fielding, LCSW-R, is a psychotherapist helping adult individuals, couples, and families in New York.
In our hectic world, it is easy to lose sight of who you really are. You might feel unhappy, on-edge, directionless, and lonely without understanding what is keeping you so stuck and stalled. Sometimes, it may seem as though your emotions have too much power over your choices and your life.
In a warm, trusting, collaborative, and non-judgmental space, you can embark on an empowering journey of self-discovery. With curiosity, self-compassion, and commitment to the process, you can unlock your innate strength and wisdom. Then, you can let go of limitations and live in service of your truest self.
I welcome you as you are. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, or relationship issues, I work closely with you to find the answers you need to heal, blossom and thrive.
Let me be your guide in discovering your best self.

“Hope is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all.”
Does this sound like you?
Do you feel that your problems in life are stopping you from functioning well or feeling good? Do you feel that your life is at a standstill?
You may be thinking that feeling stuck somehow does not warrant therapeutic intervention the way depression, grief or job loss does. You do not have to be in a crisis to seek help. I want to challenge the idea that a specific event or problem has to bring you into therapy. It could be a recurring theme in your life. It could be a relationship pattern that appears over and over. It could be a funny feeling that just won’t go away. Your therapy process belongs to you.
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a general term that means talking about your problems with a mental health professional. It can take lots of forms, including individual, couple and family sessions. Often, people see their therapists once a week. Depending on your unique situation, treatment can be fairly short or longer-term. Therapy is most effective when you’re ready to accept it. It might be the moment you start to feel off, and it might be the moment things in our lives seem to be settling.
Psychotherapy can help you:
Develop plans for solving problems
Look at ways of thinking that affect how you feel
Feel stronger in the face of challenges
Figure out your goals
Change behaviors that hold you back
Heal pains from your past
Teach you coping skills
Some people worry that getting help is a sign on weakness.
If you do, consider that it can be a sign of great strength to take steps toward getting your life back on track.
Why wait until you’re really suffering? Even if you’re not sure whether you would benefit from help, it can’t hurt to explore the possibility.
