"Find peace and create a life where you thrive."

Life can present us with many challenges. Regardless of the nature of your struggle, it’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed at times. If you’ve endured painful experiences, you may find it’s difficult to be fully present. Do you ever feel like a prisoner of your past? If so, you may have trouble turning off negative thoughts, which may leave you feeling burdened and alone.

I’m here to reassure you that you don’t have to continue this way. There is hope, and you can create the quality of life you want and deserve. As a result of our work together, you’ll be able to find inner peace and achieve the personal growth you desire.

Meet Dr. Elena Beharry, Psy.D,
Licensed Psychologist

I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in trauma and PTSD and works with people in New York City and throughout New York State. I have 20 years of clinical experience helping students, parents, women, and BIPOC with the unique challenges they face.

Through our work together, I seek to understand your needs and help you thrive in all areas of your life. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for the treatment of trauma.

Additionally, I utilize an integrative trauma approach that draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP).

We’ll explore the many facets of your life while you gain practical tools that will help pave the way for personal growth and healing. In a warm, empathic, non-judgmental therapy space, my goal is to help you:

  • Get to the root cause of your issues to help you resolve them
  • Gain a greater level of self-awareness and learn effective ways to manage life stressors
  • Discover new ways to tap into your own inner strength and stimulate a felt sense of empowerment
  • Heal from trauma and unburden painful parts that keep you feeling stuck
  • Break negative patterns of thinking and embrace self-compassion and self-love
  • Experience renewed zest for life

Share your story with me and together we’ll work on nurturing your mind, body, and spirit. Soon you’ll gain greater insight and find solutions that allow you to live your life to the fullest.

MY THERAPY STYLE

My passion for helping others started when I took a psychology class during my senior year in high school and loved it. I decided to become a psychologist and have never regretted this decision.

I am constantly seeking to hone my skills so I can best serve clients who seek my assistance. My goal is to be effective in helping you to resolve your issues and empower you to tap into your inner-strength to reach your best potential.

Coming to therapy for the first time can be scary- I know, but remember you are in control and your voice will be heard. The therapy space is your safe haven to come as you are and explore the various issues that plague you.

I have witnessed the positive impact therapy can have on clients countless times over the last two decades. I’m confident that it can change your life for the better, too.

As a mental health practitioner, I often see people at a low point in their lives. In my work, I am privileged to hear your stories and witness a part of your transformation as you reach a better place in life while on your journey to healing. I am in awe of how resilient the human spirit can be!
