Insight & Action’s Approach

At Insight & Action Therapy, we specialize in helping you stay in the driver’s seat with your mental health. Our process includes discovering more about the specific problems and intersectional factors affecting your life. Once our collaborative work has helped you identify insights into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, we’ll work together to develop tools and methods that help you take action and create change in healthy ways.

While the individual approaches our therapists take may vary from person to person, they will always aim to help you with compassion, care, and professionalism in a non-judgmental environment.

Our Specialties

Our licensed and limited-permit therapists work from New York City and can serve virtual clients from anywhere in the state of New York with an internet connection. We have multiple areas of expertise that allow us to help individuals from all walks of life. Here are just a few of our areas of focus.

LGBTQIA-Related Issues


Individuals belonging to the LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual+) community face unique challenges. Some of the factors influencing the issues they face include:

  • Individual identity

  • Cultural context

  • Geographical location

Identities within this community are diverse. Not everyone within the LGBTQIA+ community will experience the same challenges or types of discrimination, and intersectionality is a major factor.

Our approach to virtual therapy in NYC can help you navigate some of the most common community issues, including coming out, familial rejection, discrimination, religious issues, and beyond, including issues unique to you, your experiences, and your identity. We create an affirming, non-judgmental environment that provides support and cultural context for navigating your identity.

South Asian Therapy

The stigma around mental health for South Asian communities can cause problems by discouraging individuals from seeking help. There are multiple reasons why this is, including familial and social pressures, the influence of cultural beliefs, and other factors.

Our South Asian clients can find online therapy in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and beyond that specializes in addressing the challenges unique to their experiences. We’re happy to help members of this community address their mental health needs while contextualizing intersectional issues they may have in ways that help them feel comfortable.

Family and Relationships


Therapy can be a healthy way for individuals to navigate conflict in relationships and with family. These problems can come from many different sources, including communication problems, conflict resolution, trust issues, differences in parenting styles, life transitions, financial disparities, infidelity, and more.


Online therapy can help romantic partners and family members change the dynamics they share to make the relationship healthier. Our methods include:

  • Identifying patterns of behavior

  • Exploring individual and shared goals

  • Developing healthy boundaries and expectations

  • Improving emotional intelligence

  • Providing psychoeducation

  • Supporting individual growth

Depression and Anxiety


Depression and anxiety are common. However, they show up in intricate and personal ways—no two experiences with either one are alike. However, it’s important to remember that these are medical conditions, not just moods. They are serious concerns that need to be addressed like any other illness.

Fortunately, both anxiety and depression are treatable once you acknowledge your symptoms and reach out for help.


At Insight & Action Therapy, our therapists work with you to explore the origins and triggers of your depression or anxiety. Then we help you create meaningful action to disrupt negative patterns through mindfulness and self-awareness.


If you think you may hurt yourself, call your local emergency number or 911. US residents can also call or text 988 at any time, 24/7, to reach the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.

Benefits of Online Therapy


Virtual therapy provides essential access to mental health support for those facing geographical, mobility, or transportation constraints. This is particularly beneficial for those living in remote areas or who have limited access to in-person mental health services near them.

Comfort and Privacy


Receiving teletherapy in NYC allows you to attend therapy sessions from anywhere, including the comfort of your own home. This can also give you an added level of privacy that you might not otherwise get when attending in-person sessions.


Virtual therapy eliminates the need to account for travel time and allows clients to attend sessions from the comfort of home. This convenience is valuable for individuals with busy schedules, childcare responsibilities, or mobility issues.

Broader Therapist Selection

Sometimes, the best therapist for you may not work nearby. Online therapy allows individuals to choose a therapist no matter where they live. This also increases your likelihood of finding a professional with the expertise or cultural understanding you need.

Increased Flexibility

Online therapy often offers more flexible scheduling options, making it easier for individuals to find appointment times that fit their needs. This flexibility can be particularly helpful for those with irregular work hours or other commitments and constraints.

Reduced Stigma

For many individuals, online therapy is a more discreet option than traditional mental health services. Some might also feel more comfortable reaching out when they can do so in private, reducing the stigma associated with asking for help.
