Lucas Saiter, M.A., MHC-LP

I offer psychotherapy in many areas, including LGBTQIA+ individuals working on strengthening identity, immigrants adjusting to living in NYC, adults and young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, anger management, identity, grief and bereavement, trauma, and relationship and intimacy concerns.

I draw on psychodynamic, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to help people develop a more holistic sense of themselves so that they have more control over their lives. I am passionate about helping people gain awareness and become more authentic and agentic. Through personalized therapy, I am dedicated to developing a working relationship with clients and I see therapy as an opportunity to work together to develop goals.

My approach is characterized as a collaborative, compassionate, and active, where individuals can find authenticity in themselves and make meaningful change in their life by recognizing patterns and finding a voice for themselves.

I am bilingual and offer therapy in English and Brazilian Portuguese, my native language. I also work within a larger group practice called NYC Therapy + Wellness, feel free to click here to check out our website. I am also a therapist at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy in the Psychotherapy Center for Gender and Sexuality division.

Fees range from $150 - $250.
