Sybil Ottenstein, MA

Sybil Ottenstein, MAMy therapeutic approach blends psychodynamic and feminist orientations with a trauma-informed approach to offer each client an individual experience. I believe trauma lives in both the body and mind and therefore integrate talk therapy with somatic practices such as breathwork and movement to allow individuals to heal from past experiences and live a life of greater connection and freedom.

I believe that developing a safe, trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship acts as a catalyst for building and maintaining other healthy relationships in one’s life. I offer my clients a warm and compassionate environment, infused with humor and practicality. Clients find me to be an interactive, curious, and non-judgmental therapist. Through the therapy process, clients become more resilient, understanding, and accepting.

In parallel to my psychotherapy training, I co-founded and run Dinner Confidential, a global community which hosts themed monthly dinners on sensitive topics (e.g. sexuality, grief, shame) for women and female identifying folk around the world. I am also a certified trauma-conscious yoga instructor. I am passionate about yoga, dance, traveling, and gardening. I am currently completing my Masters in Mental Health Counseling at Fordham University.
