Abigail Merin, PsyD

Doctor of Psychology
New York City NY
I work collaboratively with patients to create a safe space to explore and understand patterns and obstacles that are contributing to what’s bothering them right now. My goal is to provide a place patients feel understood, and where we can work together to figure out what changes need to be made and how to make them. Patients and clients are the experts on their life and histories, and I will bring expertise from my clinical and academic training to help you work toward your goals. I’m trained in both individual and couples therapy. With individuals, I take an active, often interpersonal approach to therapy, combining psychodynamic, relational, and CBT elements. With couples, my role is, in part, to help each other be heard and bridge the communication divide that so often occurs in relationships.
