Lily Nussbaum, MHC-LP

I specialize in work with individuals and couples who struggle with communication, symptoms of anxiety and depression, existential thoughts, grief, anger, and issues related to sex, family, and other interpersonal relationships. To me, a strong, interactive relationship is the foundation of good psychotherapy, so my patients and I cultivate unique treatment plans together based upon their individual needs and goals. Each session is a safe space for in-depth explorations of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; I consider absolutely every topic to be appropriate and worthy of discussion, and I believe that everyone who seeks therapy should be respected as experts on their own lives.

Prior to my psychotherapy training I worked as a musician and community organizer. Those diverse experiences led me to create a research initiative examining the often-blurry intersection between career and identity, which has enabled me to cater directly to those who struggle with work-life balance, definitions of success, competitiveness, time management, and low self-worth. As a therapist I seek to encourage my patients to take ownership of their own narratives and get to know and embrace the wide range of intersecting elements that make them whole.

Born and raised in New York City, I graduated with honors from Fordham University with a Master’s of Science in Education in Mental Health Counseling. I am a member in good standing with the American Counseling Association and The New York Mental Health Counselors Association. I love to read, cook, and explore natural history museums.
