Dr. Nina Thomas is a licensed psychologist with offices on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and in Morristown, NJ. She specializes in group therapy and working with couples, parents, and adults navigating life transitions. She enjoys supporting both couples and individuals at formative relationship moments across the lifespan, whether that be entering into a new relationship, considering future commitment, becoming a parent, contemplating separation, empty nesting, or finding renewed connection after decades together.
Dr. Thomas uses a primarily insight-oriented approach, taking the deep dive with her clients to get to the heart of their issues. She's particularly skilled at helping clients understand how the past informs their current decisions and relationships.
