Chris Kingman NYC Therapist

As a therapist I have been helping people for the past 20 years to manage their emotions, improve relationships, deal with transitions, advance career aspirations, heal from trauma, eliminate self-destructive behaviors, feel more internally secure and more.

My approach and style are interactive, down-to-earth, humanistic and practical; I am not the type of therapist to “just sit there.” My philosophy is that therapy is a co-creative process, and I take great care to ensure that my clients develop tools and strategies that help them to not only feel better but also to live better.

In addition to being a practicing therapist for many years, I also taught “Human Behavior” and “Group Process” at the graduate level and served as Clinical Supervisor, Associate Director and Director for psychotherapy centers in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Suffice it to say that this collection of professional activity has kept me in regular contact with a very diverse and dynamic grouping of people and ideas over the years—all of which enriches me personally and professionally on an ongoing basis in ways that I deeply value. Lifelong learning is a core principle of my therapy practice, and it is something I try to live by as well.

I live with my wife and two daughters in Brooklyn.
