Kristen Marx, LMSW

Psychotherapist offering in-person and telehealth therapy at our Union Square offices in Manhattan


I have a strongly held belief  that everyone deserves to be happy.​ Life throws many challenges our way and it often helps to have a trained professional's objective guidance to navigate them.

My interest is in working with you to create a space for exploring what is happening and why. We are all the experts in our own lives, but help with teasing the answers out can provide the clarity we seek. We might work on accessing dissociated experience, uncovering longstanding beliefs and patterns in order to make room for personal growth, character enhancement and boundary setting.  

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Training and Mindfulness Practice among other modalities. Having formerly worked on Wall Street, I understand the challenges of the corporate world and the changes it is currently undergoing. My Master's degree in Social Work is from Simmons University. I'm also a certified mindfulness and meditation instructor.

"Life is amazing. And then it's awful. And then it's amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful, it's ordinary and mundane and routine. Breath in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That's just living a heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it's breathtakingly beautiful." LR Knost.
