Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy: A Holistic Approach

Our team of psychotherapists at Steady NYC in Midtown Manhattan, New York is specially trained in trauma-informed therapy. This means that we approach every therapy session with a deep understanding of the emotional, biological, social, and psychological effects of trauma. We recognize that trauma can impact individuals in various ways, often manifesting as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or other behavioral and emotional issues.

With our trauma-informed approach, we strive to create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore the impact of trauma on your life. We believe that addressing the root causes of trauma is essential for lasting healing and personal growth. Our therapists are committed to empowering you to navigate your unique healing journey, providing guidance and tools to help you regain control over your story and embrace your true self.

Identifying and Removing Barriers to Authenticity

You are the author of your life, but sometimes it can be challenging to tell your story in a way that is authentic and real. Our work at Steady NYC is centered around helping you identify and remove the barriers that may be hindering your personal growth and impeding your ability to embrace your true self.

Through psychotherapy, we assist in uncovering and exploring the underlying factors that may be contributing to your emotional struggles. Our experienced psychotherapists offer a compassionate space where you can feel heard, understood, and supported as you navigate difficult emotions and thoughts. By recognizing and addressing these obstacles, we can help you gain a clearer understanding of yourself, enhance self-awareness, and ultimately foster positive life changes.

Holistic Approach to Psychotherapy and Counseling

At Steady NYC, we believe in a holistic approach to psychotherapy and counseling. We recognize that your emotional well-being is interconnected with various aspects of your life, including your relationships, physical health, and cultural background. Our therapists consider all these factors when developing personalized treatment plans that cater to your unique needs.

Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive therapeutic experience that addresses not only the surface-level symptoms but also the underlying causes of your distress. By exploring your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, we can help you develop healthier coping strategies, build resilience, and foster meaningful connections both with yourself and others.

Offering Compassionate and Empathetic Support

At Steady NYC, we understand that seeking help through psychotherapy can be both courageous and vulnerable. We offer a safe and non-judgmental space where you can openly explore your experiences, fears, and aspirations. Our professionally trained therapists are compassionate and empathetic listeners who are committed to understanding your unique perspective.

We also strive to build a collaborative therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect, allowing you to feel supported and encouraged throughout your journey of healing and personal growth. Our therapists will guide you towards unlocking your full potential, empowering you to take charge of your own narrative and create a life that reflects your authentic self.


Our founder, Kathryn Grooms, had the vision to start a psychotherapy practice in Midtown Manhattan, New York with a culture where awareness thrives and difference is celebrated for both therapists and clients.

This vision started when Kathryn was a social worker in the 90's in Philadelphia, working with individuals living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Through her work in harm reduction and AIDS activism, Kathryn bore witness to the transformative impact of individuals being cared for with respect and attention to their entire experience, and not simply the "issue" that brought them into treatment. This experience ignited Kathryn's passion for healing, and her desire to create a psychotherapy practice that fosters this sort of care.

This is how Steady NYC was born.

At SteadyNYC, we believe we all have blind spots and internalized phobias and that we must all commit to doing the very best we can to pay attention to those and actively practice acts that challenge racism, sexism, sizeism, ableism, homophobia and discrimination and intolerance of all kinds.

SteadyNYC is a practice that embodies and encourages moving steadily forward, building slowly, developing along the way and being willing to listen, learn and grow.  Here at Steady NYC, we are cultivating a diverse community of highly-skilled and talented therapists and Kathryn is grateful for each therapist who joins her in this mission and considers it an honor to help every client navigate their own unique journey of self-discovery and emotional healing.
