CONFIDENTIAL AND AFFORDABLE… CALL US FOR AN APPOINTMENT. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU

Rory McDonough


 

Many of us struggle with overwhelming emotions in isolation and find it difficult to cope with the enormity of how these emotions impact our everyday lives.

As a therapist my goal for each client is to meet them where they are and foster their intrinsic drive for change. Through encouragement, I work with my clients to heal from past experiences, focus on their strengths in the present, and create lasting, constructive changes to achieve a greater, overall sense of well-being. A person-centered, humanistic approach is integral to my understanding of a therapeutic relationship and as such I use empathy and compassion as a starting point for connection to my clients. I use this in conjunction with integrated, behavioral methods grounded in positive psychology to foster growth in every aspect of my clients lives.

As a therapist I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, sex-positive, and inclusive of all identities. I have over a decade of experience working in university and educational settings with adolescents and adults in life transitions. Through my professional experiences I have developed a great empathy for those who are going through major life changes like a divorce, change of career, intimacy issues, and a dysfunctional relationship, which often manifest themselves through anxiety, depression, and feelings of anger and dissatisfaction. I welcome clients in all life stages who are looking to heal from their past and make constructive changes moving forward.

I received my M.A in education from New York University and am pursuing an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Hofstra University. I have 10+ years of experience working as an Adjunct Associate Professor at Hofstra University.
