Dr. Basha Silver
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist specializing in individual therapy for adults and young adults (age 17+).
I offer a warm, focused and interactive approach to therapy. My expertise is grounded in evidence-based treatment approaches, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and flexibly incorporates aspects of schema therapy, DBT, and attachment theory. I work with individuals to create positive changes in their lives by increasing awareness of patterns of thought, behaviors, and beliefs that are blocking them from achieving their goals, getting in the way of relationships, or increasing emotional suffering.
My areas of expertise include anxiety disorders (social anxiety, panic, OCD, generalized anxiety) and trauma. I also specialize in women’s mental health, including reproductive and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, infertility, and relationship difficulties. Additionally, I have extensive experience in working with older adolescents (age 17+) and college-age young adults and am passionate about addressing concerns of emerging adulthood, such as navigating family and peer relationships, social insecurities, the adjustment to college, and early career anxieties.
I am a New York City native and obtained my bachelor’s degree from Colgate University and my doctoral degree from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. Throughout my career I have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, college counseling centers, and private practices. I completed my postdoctoral fellowship at Cognitive Therapy for Women Psychological Services, where I received advanced training in women’s mental health. In addition to maintaining a private practice, I also provide clinical supervision for doctoral students at the New School for Social Research.
