Request an Appointment

The season of life you’re in is filled with unknown. But that unknown? It doesn’t have to own you.

Whether you’re wrestling with unmet expectations about how you thought life would look, anxious about where you’re headed, or struggling with changing or new relationship dynamics — the stress doesn't have to be debilitating. 

Dr. Dana Moriarty

Founder of DLM Psychology | Licensed Clinical Psychologist in NYC

After two decades of working with young adults to help them navigate the transitions of their 20s and early 30s — I’ve come to this conclusion: they need someone in their corner.

And perhaps now more than ever.

That’s why I’ve devoted my career to partnering with young adults — just like you — to empower them to take charge of their mental health. Yes, life is difficult, change is hard and both come at you fast — but the effects don’t have to leave you in a constant state of emotional distress or mental shutdown.

When you work with me, we partner together to create a relaxed, safe, yet professional and structured environment where you can process and grow — all without judgment, critique, or the “stuffy” perception that sometimes comes along with therapy.

By coupling proven therapy modalities like Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) with humor and interaction — I leverage a goal-oriented form of therapy that empowers you to live comfortably in your own skin.
