Sean Hershey (he, him, his)

Psychotherapist serving New York City & New York State

I love meeting people and connecting beneath the surface. I'm a naturally curious and relationally-oriented person, which is why I'm looking forward to getting to know you.

I identify as gay and enjoy working with clients of all genders and sexualities, especially lgbtqia+ folks.

My mom was a therapist when I was growing up. Our dinner table would come alive with conversations about feelings, people, relationships, conflict, connection, mental health - all the important stuff. Of course, I got interested. I decided to pursue a career as a therapist myself. With years of formal training and experience - combined with my informal training around the kitchen table - I feel confident I can help you.

I have a Master's in Social Work and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Over my career, I’ve practiced at Mount Sinai, in federally qualified health centers, in high school-based clinics, and in community clinics. I work from a psychodynamic framework and use attachment theory, object relations, CBT, motivational interviewing, solution-focused, and trauma-informed interventions. I'm also trained in EMDR, a body-based trauma treatment.

I love to use humor in my work, I love house plants (see them featured in my virtual office), and, of course, I love working with my clients.
