Anxious. Isolated. Spinning out of control.

There are many changes happening at a rapid pace.

There’s so much to handle and understand and you feel overwhelmed, alone and depressed.

You may have tried different coping mechanisms but discover that they only provide temporary relief.  

You feel lost and unable to find the direction. 

The pressure of everything looms over you and you are frightened and unsure of how to navigate through the storm.

You may have thoughts like…


“I’m not sure who I am”

“I feel depressed and I can’t seem to shake it.”

“I’m so ashamed I don’t know how I can be around other people again.”

If you have had these thoughts or feelings, you know that they impact your daily life.  

Maybe you haven’t been able to get out of bed or have canceled on friends.  

Maybe you keep trying to find the right solution only to watch as things spin more and more out of control.  

These experiences are hard and living with these intense emotions is exhausting.

You want something different.  A change.  You want an escape from the jungle of anxieties and worries that keep you from living the life that you want.

Change is possible.

Why is being a teenager so hard?

Honestly, there is nothing easy about being a teenager.  

  • Mental and physical changes are all happening while on a heightened emotional roller-coaster.  
  • Priorities are shifting and the risks come with more serious consequences. 
  • The resources available through friends or the internet can lead to more self-destructive behaviors and do not fix your problem.

Therapy can help.

Therapy can help you to learn how to manage your emotions and better understand yourself.  

It can help you feel confident that someone is there to listen and help you work through the tangled mess of life.

Whether it is social anxiety, relationship struggles, school stress, fracturing families— it’s important to have the right support in your corner. 

By learning the tools and techniques to work through the emotional chaos, you can find the courage and confidence to be your authentic self.

Courage and confidence are essential as you continue towards big life decisions of college, careers and relationships.  

Courage will help you take on new ventures and confidence will help you feel at peace as you are making big decisions and facing new problems.

At Cultivating Courage Psychological Services, we specialize in working with teens. We know what it’s like (we’ve been there) and have helped hundreds of teens find their best selves.

If you are ready to take the next step in having the support you need to help you steer through your struggles, contact us below to schedule a free 15-minute consultation.

Welcome to

Cultivating Courage Psychological Services

Hi! We're Moriah & Elizabeth!

We have one goal, to help your teen get through this challenging period and enter a better way of living life.

We are grateful for the trust you place in us to help your work toward improving their relationship with themselves and others..

We know it can feel scary to reach out, but it can be the first step in a positive upwards spiral.

Why Should You Choose To Work With Us?

Your Experience, Our Experience

Through our years working as therapists, we have worked with hundreds of families to help them improve their relationships

Quality Service

Our aim is to provide you with the highest level of care there is. We don’t stop until you’ve achieved your goals for therapy and have harmony within your family.

Personal Feel

Unlike big corporate companies, like Betterhelp or Talkspace, small group practices such as ours, have the ability to connect with you one on one and receive the personalized care you deserve.


Elizabeth’s fee is $250 per 45-50 minute session, and Moriah’s is $300.

Like most private mental health practitioners in New York, I am  considered an “out of network” provider. This means that some of my clients pay fully out of pocket, and others pay our fee up-front and then receive partial reimbursement from their insurance provider in accordance with their out-of-network insurance benefits.

Depending on your insurance policy, some (not all) policies will offer partial reimbursement to you for out-of-network services. We can check these benefits for you at the time of your consultation call.

In our experience, reimbursement is common and most of our clients are reimbursed for 50 to 100% for the cost of their sessions if they have out-of-network mental health coverage.

We have partnered with Reimbursify for you to easily submit your claims for out-of-network health insurance reimbursement from your smartphone. Reimbursify will allow for you to get reimbursed at a quicker rate than if you submitted these claims yourself.

Love this question!  We will spend time getting to know you better, understanding your priorities and crafting a plan to help you reach your goals. This is also a great time to ask any follow up questions you have from the consultation call.

We really believe in working ourselves out of a job and setting you or your family up for success.  This process is quick for some and takes longer for others, depending on what you want to work on, your goals and level of motivation.  This is a great question to ask in your consultation call or in your initial sessions with us.  As we get to know you better we can make better predictions of timelines.
