Dhvani Lindsey is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Midtown, Manhattan who sees older teens and adults across the lifespan. She offers remote video sessions to clients living in NY or NJ. She has a particular interest in working with millennials. She specializes in anxiety, romantic and professional relationships, life and career transitions, and couples counseling.
Dhvani is passionate about working with young women of color, including those who are first or second generation and may be struggling with the different levels of acculturation within their family system
Dhvani’s background is in evidence-based therapies, so she frequently utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), when appropriate. She also weaves in narrative therapy in order to help her clients reframe their past experiences and develop greater self-compassion. She has a deep understanding of the need for both insight- and goal-oriented sessions. She also works within a systems context by continually thinking about how an individual’s family, work, and support system have influenced who they are.
When working with couples, Dhvani focuses on communication to help her clients better understand one another and highlight the strengths they have as a couple. She and her clients work through conflicts or arguments together in order to show that, at the end of the day, they are on the same team.
Dhvani wants her clients to leave sessions feeling empowered to reach their goals and with the confidence to take the next step or overcome the next challenge. She received her master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from the University of San Diego and has been in practice as a therapist for 8 years.
