can therapy 
help me?

Let's talk.

Therapy helps, not only by giving you a place to vent but by forging a connection with a trustworthy co-pilot. A good therapist reflects your thoughts and feelings back to you, pointing out recurring themes and challenging inconsistencies in your story. A good therapist helps you find your tools and get with your people.

ABOUT ME

A different kind of therapist

I’m Ann Farrar, LMHC, a licensed mental health counselor based in New York City, (and now online). I truly care about my patients’ well-being and provide a down-to-earth, empathic style of psychotherapy. I'm much more likely to refer to something on Netflix than stare at you blankly in silence or make you feel like a mental patient. Life is hard enough. Let's be real.

 

My former life as an actor is a big part of my approach. I have an MFA from American Conservatory Theatre and spent many years on stages and in audition rooms- not to mention temping and waiting tables and trying to manage sanity and income and body image BS. I know it's a balancing act. So is marriage and parenthood. I'm familiar with that too. I'm from the midwest but have lived and worked in New York for 20+ years. I love big trees and road trips and board games and running. I like persisting, nevertheless.

In addition to my creative work, I also have a background in integrative health coaching. This means I hold my clients accountable for their lifestyle goals including sleep and exercise and meditation. I am a big believer in mindfulness as a powerful protector against depression and anxiety. 

My Masters degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness is from NYU.
