About Us

At NYCounselingServices, we believe that emotional health is a critical component of overall well-being, and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality professional services for healing trauma.


Led by founder Antonieta Contreras, we strive to create a compassionate and scientifically-informed practice that empowers clients to overcome emotional difficulties and achieve a fulfilling life. With a background in mathematics, banking, and consulting, Ms. Contreras discovered her passion for mental health while training in India and Eastern Contemplative traditions. She has since gained extensive training in various modalities, including Gestalt, Trauma Studies, Human Sexuality, Neurofeedback, AEDP, EMDR, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, REBT (CBT), Internal Family Systems, and Contemplative psychotherapy.

Ms. Contreras has a deep understanding of the power of the mind and the natural self-healing capacities of the human brain, and she integrates Eastern and Western wisdom to provide clients with effective and compassionate care. In addition to providing direct services to clients, she teaches, supervises, and consults with other therapists to ensure that her approach to healing trauma is widely available. As a faculty member at The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapies and a guest lecturer at the Silver School of Social Work of NYU, Ms. Contreras is committed to advancing the field of mental health and trauma treatment. She also frequently speaks on the topics of trauma and neurofeedback at agencies, universities, and institutes across the country.
