Dr. Terri Bacow Welcomes You!
CBT Psychologist on the Upper West Side of NYC

Searching for anxiety and stress therapy in New York from a top therapist in NYC? Welcome to my practice! Research has found that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most effective ways to overcome life’s challenges and put things in perspective. I am a well-known cognitive-behavioral therapist in NYC and I am happy to help.  I offer both telemedicine and in–person sessions at my UWS office. In addition, I am licensed to practice telehealth in Florida.

Terri Bacow, Ph.D.


Expert in Anxiety and Stress Therapy in New York Offering Evidence-Based Treatments

I work with adolescent and adult clients, treating anxiety, depression, life transitions, and ADHD using evidence-based treatments.  The therapy approaches I offer include CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy),  ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), and DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy). These strategies (CBT, ACT, and DBT) are supported by research as being very helpful in reducing distress and promoting active coping. Additionally, I work with new and expectant parents and offer comprehensive support for parent's mental health and burnout (keeping our sanity is important!)

Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from one of the best therapists in NYC can make things better. I am a parent of two children, and all too familiar with the challenges of stress management and dealing with daily chaos.  I care about your well-being and provide you with empirically supported tools that can help you learn how to tackle even the most difficult circumstances.  My practice is the ideal place to find CBT therapy in NYC, and I always take a personalized and tailored approach to help the clients I work with.
