Meg F. Schneider, MA, LCSW-R

I am a counselor and licensed psychotherapist who works with teens and adults struggling with poor self-esteem, depression, anxiety, anger, eating disordered behaviors, Asperger’s, loneliness and life transitions.

I am also an accomplished musician and understand well the trials and joys of the creative process.

I have been a contributor to The Huffington Post and am the author of many published books including; Difficult Questions Kids Ask (And Are Too Afraid To Ask) About Divorce, Sex and the Single Parent, and Just A Little too Thin.

I hold an MA in Counseling Psychology from Columbia University and an MSW from Fordham University.

I am also a practitioner of EMDR, a technique designed to alleviate long held negative beliefs associated with trauma by exploring and reprocessing critical memories.


I am presently doing both in person sessions and teletherapy.

Stylistically  I’m very active in my sessions so the silences many people fear are rarely if ever present.

I am offering a free 15 minutes consultation so that you can get a sense of how I work before trying a session. Call 845- 876- 8808 to set up a time.

Thank you.
