Psychotherapy, EMDR Therapy, Skype Coaching + Consultation in Manhattan 

Kimberly Seelbrede, LCSW is a New York City-based licensed Psychotherapist, Coach and Consultant with extensive post-graduate training and experience working with individuals, families and couples. As a practitioner of mind-body medicine, Kimberly is an expert in lifestyle and stress management and works to create a unique and integrative psychotherapy practice for her clients that skillfully blends psychodynamic psychotherapy with, CBT, DBT skills, mindfulness, somatic psychotherapy, neurobiology/psychology education, EMDR therapy, hypnosis, self-care practices, intuitive counseling and wellness coaching/stress management support. The majority of her clients are busy New Yorker's who struggle with stress, performance blocks, emotion regulation, depression, anxiety, psychosomatic disease, addictions, eating disorders, trauma, life transitions and spiritual concerns and are seeking greater life-balance support, increased resilience, support for unhelpful patterns and habits and improved professional and personal relationships. As an integrative psychotherapist, Kimberly incorporates a holistic approach, offering alternatives to conventional medications for anxiety, depression, ADHD and other health concerns including hormonal imbalance, chronic pain, illness and autoimmune disorders. As an EMDR expert, Kimberly is delighted to offer this alone for trauma resolution or integrated into regular psychotherapy sessions. In Addition to EMDR therapy, Kimberly offers mindfulness and focusing for clients open to mind-body and somatic therapies.

As a psychotherapist & consultant who practices mind-body medicine, my approach blends the wisdom of ancient traditions and somatic therapies with aspects of talk therapy and practical skills. My goal is to guide my clients in their efforts to feel “whole” and “well,” creating a naturally occurring sense of ease and embodiment. Clients are then able to experience deeper connections to self, others, and ultimately, enjoy a more satisfying and meaningful life.
Deep and lasting healing can be achieved by utilizing internal and external resources such as neurobiological attachment, connecting to the natural world, somatic resources, tapping into the wisdom of the body, eye movement, breathwork, and developing intuition and a deep understanding of one’s true self and a higher consciousness. I offer tools and practices that draw from the wisdom of many approaches including somatic psychotherapy, working with unconscious elements, cognitive behavior therapy and using the healing nature of the therapeutic relationship. Problems of the mind and body such as depression, anxiety, addictions, chronic pain and disease are a call to dig deeper, to uncover the many ways that we struggle to feel whole, which includes the need to express our true nature, inhabit our bodies and feel connected to life force.
