My name is Sacha Zilkha and I am a licensed psychologist providing psychotherapy through online video sessions.
I started my practice built on the premise that everyone has the ability to be who they really want to be. I believe in providing a holistic and integrated approach to psychotherapy that considers the mind, body and social circumstances. I specialize in the areas of anxiety, parenting, life transitions and personal growth.
I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from the City University of New York and received training and supervision at Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania. This training included a visiting fellowship at the Aaron T. Beck Center for Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy and Practice where I received direct supervision from Dr. Aaron T. Beck and his colleagues. My treatment approach is built upon my doctoral and post-doctoral training and combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Hypnosis.
Prior to obtaining my PhD, I spent 7 years leading large scale clinical implementation projects to improve mental health services across NYC for the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. This experience led me to want to further my understanding of mental health and ultimately become a psychologist.
