You’re capable, smart, intelligent and “together” but life has gotten to be too much recently.

Small daily things flip you over your edge, you get irritated and are left spinning in a circle of emotions. It leaves you feeling anxious and sometimes sad, a familiar feeling from long ago. It’s time to deal with the struggles of sadness, fear and the ongoing story that you are never enough for anything or anyone.

You are worthy of more than chronic disappointment and frustration.

I help anxious, overachieving women declutter beliefs and patterns that no longer serve them. My clients come to me because they want to get unstuck from the cycle of dissatisfaction and anxiety, and to simplify their life and emotions. Imagine waking up reaching for your partner, child or loved one from a place of curiosity and space for real connection. Imagine going to work with with less chaos + more ease. And imagine, at the end of the day, laying your head on the pillow, being able to fall asleep feeling at peace, trusting you did your best.

Psychotherapy to live fully + love deeply.

Am I the right therapist for you?


Esther Goldstein LCSW

Psychotherapist & Trauma Specialist

Research proves that one of the best predictors of success in therapy is the personality /relationship fit between you, the client, and therapist. Since the fit is of utmost importance, I require an initial free consult for us to get to know each other and lay out the initial plan to help you.

I am known as a trauma specialist who uses a relational approach and other therapy methods such as EMDR, expressive arts, and somatic work, all of which I am happy to talk with you about during our consult call. The clients who benefit the most from working together with me are women who are capable beyond comprehension but feel the farthest from that. If you’re like most of my clients, you don’t want a quick fix or a “reboot”.

You want to dive in, roll your sleeves up and to do the work that offers healing that lasts beyond your time in therapy.

If we work together, all of you is invited into this process. We explore not just your hopes, ideas and dreams, but also the demons, fears, confusion and dark spaces you struggle with. In these spaces we peel the layers, uncover who you truly are and honor your truths. There will be tears and laughter too. This time is all about you, your thoughts, needs and lots of space for big emotions. This is a place to unfold, be held, seen and supported. This is also your place to heal, change and blossom.

And for the nitty gritty details...
