Our Approach

The Compassion Practice is a Manhattan-based private practice and training center. We strive to meet our clients’ needs through a combination of evidence-based practices, careful client-therapist matching, and a genuine human connection.

Whatever you are struggling and suffering with, we want to help you get unstuck, and move forward. Through practicing self-compassion and mindfulness, we will collaborate with you to build a life of joy, meaning, and freedom-the life you want to live.

“I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.”

Tracee Ellis Ross
