Therapy to go from overwhelmed
to overjoyed.

Judgment-free therapy in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for New Yorkers struggling with chronic work stress, anxiety, and low self-esteem.


Hi! I'm Paige Rechtman

Cat Lover, Real Person, and LGBTQIA+ Friendly Therapist in Brooklyn, NY 🌈

My mission isn’t just to help you feel better; it’s to help you get better at feeling.

Available for in-person therapy in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and online in New York State.


Let's face it—

Keeping up with life in NYC is HARD, and it's understandable if...

  • You feel trapped in a vicious cycle of work-stress-repeat and don’t feel like there’s a way out.
  • You don’t feel accepted and lack confidence in social settings, but you hide it well.
  • You’re drowning in a sea of high-pressure responsibilities. Most days you feel like you’re barely keeping your head above water.

And you don't see how it's ever going to get better. The loneliness, the shame, the constant stress that never ends...

You don’t have to navigate it alone. I promise there IS a way out of the struggle.

I help you empower and accept yourself, so you can handle whatever life throws your way.

Who I Work With

My clients are hard-working, successful, and seem to be balancing all of their demands. But on the inside, they're anxious, struggling to hold on, and tormented by unspoken pain.

I’m here to help you get through the rough patches and improve the stuck places in your life.

  • Do you feel like everyone has it together but you?
  • Are you afraid to go out in social settings because you feel judged or have social anxiety?
  • Do you live to please everyone else but yourself?
  • Do you feel alone and like all you do is work, but the pressure never ends?

I'm in your corner and want you to know that stress, anxiety, and depression don't have to rule your life anymore.

Anxiety therapy is for you if....

  • You feel burned out in your career and relationships.
  • You’re trapped in a cycle of overextending yourself, and exhaustion.
  • You are/were a victim of bullying and are always afraid or in crisis.
  • You have body image issues (and this goes for a lot of men too!).
  • You struggle with your sexual identity, shame, confusion, or feeling misunderstood.
  • You constantly compare yourself to others and feel like you don’t match up.
  • You can’t seem to move on from a bad break-up or devastating loss in your life.
  • You have never done therapy before and feel like you should be able to solve your own problems.

Guys, I have SO been there. And I also know that it’s sometimes scary to reach out for help when you need it most. 

But, take it from me . . . you don’t have to try and feel better on your own.

My therapy

No matter what you’re feeling right now or going through — there’s a way out of the pain.

I listen with an open-mind, and with empathy, so you feel safe to talk about whatever is bothering you.

I also use mindfulness techniques and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to help you gain a broader perspective and see things differently.

After our sessions, you’ll feel more grounded and better able to cope with everyday stressors. 

Reframe the way you see yourself and construct a more positive view of your life. I support you as you dive deeper to explore who you are and what makes you awesome!

Feel empowered to tackle your challenges head-on without fear, shame, or stress.

What my therapy clients say about working together:

"I came to Paige for a very specific problem. I wanted to get married to a woman and needed help coming out to my religious, homophobic family. I didn't think they could accept it and was sure they would never speak to me again. I needed support and help to get through it. I got a lot more than just that. Over the years, Paige helped me improve my self-esteem, unpack many personal issues so I can begin to work on them, manage my anxiety, and prioritize my mental wellness. She helped me improve myself and how I live my life."
- L, Former client
"I started seeing Paige when I was having a crisis in my career. She ended up providing therapy for much more than just my job. My communication with my friends, family, and partner are so much better because of my sessions with Paige. I am able to really pinpoint my needs and express them. Paige can lightly steer the conversation where I need it to be. This therapy has contributed to my overall health and quality of life. I can't recommend her enough."
- J, Current client
"After working with Paige for 2 years I can honestly say I see a lot of personal growth from when I first met her. I do not think I would have persevered without our weekly sessions. She is extremely approachable and genuine. I have worked with Paige both in person and online and in both environments she has provided me with a safe and comfortable space. I highly recommend working with her!"
- M, Former client
"Paige is supportive and open-minded, yet knows how to challenge you to explore a new perspective. She has helped me navigate work challenges, deep-rooted family issues, breakups + dating, the loss of pets, stress from the pandemic + political atmosphere, and everything in between. Paige creates a judgment-free, safe space where you can be vulnerable and work through anxiety and depressive moods. She also offers techniques that you can practice and implement in your daily life."
- E, Current Client
