Karen Conlon is the Founder and Clinical Director of Cohesive Therapy NYC. Many of her clients are living with anxiety, underlying trauma or having difficulties with low-self-esteem or perfectionism. Her approach to therapy is collaborative and combines traditional talk therapy with science-based techniques that are meant to help you create long- lasting changes. Clients learn how become aware of how the ways in which they think about certain situations, and learn how their feelings are also impacting their behavior.
Karen is passionate about the relationship between neuroscience and anxiety, and working with her will often result in gaining much more than just therapy. Her clients gain insightful knowledge, real understanding of how their triggers affect them and specific techniques to better manage and cope. Her approach is to work with you to understand your life's barriers and help you to improve coping strategies/skills through conversational, creative therapy.
She earned her Masters of Social Work from New York University and is passionate about continuing education. Her passion and high standards for continued learning in the therapy space is evident from her extensive earned and on-going certification trainings in Disorders of Gut Brain Interaction, Clinical Anxiety Treatment, Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused-CBT, Hypnosis, to name some.

Karen and all of the therapists in her group practice, Cohesive Therapy NYC, work with clients who are struggling with anxiety, trauma, PSTD, chronic illness, relationship issues, life transitions, childhood emotional neglect, and more. They are licensed to serve clients in New York and New Jersey, including via Telehealth/online appointments.
Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)
Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Healing painful experiences and memories from the past
Chronic illness - Receiving a diagnosis; adjusting to lifestyle and medication changes; coping with related changes in mood, emotions, and relationships; managing symptoms and stress
Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) - Childhood emotional neglect is consistent – meaning that it occurred over a period of time and not just on occasion – and that makes its effect on a developing mind all the more significant. Maladaptive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors learned during this period of time often survive the transition into adulthood and may become disruptive to your life.
Life transitions - Coping with difficult or impactful life changes, such as moving to a new area, relationship transitions, child rearing, or career changes; learning self-care to better manage resulting stress
