New York Therapy

Mental Health Therapy

Sometimes services beyond life coaching are necessary to improve mental health, such as mental health therapy. Mental health counseling is a medically-based service. Individual therapy with Dr. Blair is exclusively available to adult New York State residents and conducted via a secure, HIPAA compliant telehealth platform.

Deciding whether to self-pay or use your health insurance for therapy?

It is becoming increasingly common for clients to self-pay for therapy. This is an individual choice. Consider the following benefits of self-pay, in terms of their importance to you:

  • Increased Privacy. The only ones who know you are in therapy is you and your provider — not you, your provider, and your insurance company, including the various departments that coordinate your benefits, review your medical utilization, process your claims, etc.
  • No diagnosis needed. In order to utilize your mental health benefits, your therapist will give you a mental health diagnosis. This is mandatory because your insurance company will need to know why they are paying for a service you are seeking.
  • Flexibility. Only you and your provider collaborate on treatment length and frequency of sessions in order to serve you, the client, with transparency, integrity, and complete care.
  • Energy exchange. Energy exchanges result when both parties give and receive (i.e., you give payment and receive care; your provider gives care and receives payment). This is a mutually respectful and beneficial process. Going through a separate payer disrupts this energy exchange because there is now a third party in the two-person therapy room. 
  • Empowerment. You get to choose which provider you want to work with, providing their scope of practice reflects your needs. You do not need to filter whom you choose based on complexities related to whether that provider has an agreed-upon contract with your specific insurance company, as well as what your specific agreed-upon contract is with your insurance company.

“I reached out to Dr. Blair due to severe sleep anxiety that began at 5 months post partum and was causing major disruptions in life and taking away the joy of spending time with our infant. Dr. Blair taught me so many effective strategies and techniques that I was able to implement immediately following our sessions. I feel like I am back to a new normal. I am incredibly grateful for Dr. Blair's support.”

“Therapy provided a safe space where I could work out what was going on in my mind and the reasoning behind it. It allowed me to discover how to manage my emotions rather than my emotions managing me. I felt comfortable sharing my hardest and deepest sorrows and struggles with Supriya, and that was vital for me to deal with those areas of my life and ultimately move forward. I'm so thankful I did this and that I had an incredible experience. I choose where I go from here and I am solely responsible for it. I feel empowered. Therapy has changed my life.”

“My biggest area of growth is in my self confidence. I feel empowered that I am learning how to manage my emotions, energy and boundaries in a new way that feels aligned with my values. The tools and practices Dr. Blair has shared with me have truly changed my perceptions and behaviors. Dr. Blair continuously motivated me through my own self discovery work to stay mindful through current and new situations that would often stir up anxious feelings.”

"Dr. Blair showed up to every single session fully present with me and always ready to listen without judgement. She held a safe space for me and was always genuine and authentic in her practice. The guidance and tools that she helped me to cultivate are life changing and I would recommend anyone who is ready to do the work to see if Dr. Blair is a good fit."

"It was an amazing experience working with Dr. Blair. I felt heard, supported, safe and guided throughout our time together. Dr. Blair is an exceptional therapist and it was so bittersweet for me to end our work together. My biggest area of growth was my sense of confidence and self trust. I grew so much during my time with Dr. Blair, but most of all, she helped me to realize my own power, tap into my intuition and wisdom that was already in me. The gains that I've received through therapy are invaluable."

"Working with Dr. Blair was such a pleasure. She`s insightful, compassionate, and takes extreme care in understanding the unique need of her client. Dr. Blair helped me become grounded in the present and gave me the tools to begin to take control over my life. We worked a lot around setting boundaries and finding ways to clear my headspace. If you are looking for a therapist to give you the tools and you are willing to put them into practice, I highly recommend Dr. Blair."

"I felt Dr. Blair was an excellent therapist. She was a good listener, empathetic, and often helped me find a way to express ideas that were just below the surface. I felt that I left each of our sessions with a clear objective to work through before the next session. I looked forward to talking with her when we met."

"I`ve become much more attuned to the connection between my mind and body, and strengthened my boundaries in healthy ways. I`ve learned to think carefully about what works for me, and where I want to spend my energy, and then make choices from there. I felt a real sense of growth through my own issues and readiness to 'graduate' from therapy when the time came, and I felt that Dr. Blair helped prepare me for this transition."

“Working with Dr. Blair was very easy. I`ve experienced a decrease in my overall anxiety, and an increase in my empowerment and assertiveness. She provides helpful, actionable feedback. Her therapeutic approach is accessible to anyone, whether they have experience in therapy or not.”

“I have learned to embrace all parts of me and to take ownership of my story. I have a clearer connection to my inner voice and it has empowered me to speak up and set boundaries in my life. I feel deep gratitude for the lessons I learned from Dr. Blair. For any future clients, I recommend delving into Dr. Blair's site and blog. There is a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. It honestly reflects the principles clients will explore when working with Dr. Blair.”

“I had a wonderfully positive experience working with Dr. Blair. Her values and deep knowledge in spiritual principles were evident in her writing, as they were in practice when I started my sessions with her. Dr. Blair`s openness and ability to genuinely hold space for me was an invitation to do so for myself. With Dr. Blair as my guide, I found myself leaning into ideas of self-discovery and the mind-body-spirit connection. Today I find myself more empowered, aligned with my inner authentic self and connected to my body because of our collaboration.”

“I liked that you were direct and encouraged me to take accountability for my actions, and did so in a nurturing manner. You were always so calm, reminded me to practice the techniques we discussed, and led by example.”

“You had me look at myself (both what I felt was good and bad) and allowed me to give myself permission to move through my feelings and forgive myself for anything I thought I did wrong or just didn`t get right. The process was really tough at times but it was well worth the work.”

“You were welcoming, thorough, consistent, and asked questions about what it is that I wanted. You were also thoughtful about what works for me and offered flexibility when needed.”

“Thank you for the way you poured into helping me grow into a more solid person.”
