WELCOME TO THE FIFTH AVE COUNSELING CENTER
Our multidisciplinary team offers individual, couples, family and group psychotherapy to patients with a wide variety of diagnoses. A dedicated staff of over forty clinical social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists provide talk therapy, and medication management to adults, adolescents and children. With over forty-years of serving the community, The Fifth Avenue Center prides itself on its longstanding history of professionalism, confidentiality and high-quality care.
We are a not-for-profit, outpatient mental health center licensed by the New York State Department of Mental Health. Our history began in Greenwich Village in the 1960s as an affordable source for expert and dependable psychotherapy. Now located in the Flatiron District, The Fifth Avenue Center continues that mission by participating in most major health plans. For those without insurance, we offer a sliding scale fee structure that is based on the patient’s income.
As mental health practitioners, our goal is to address and ameliorate distress. We work closely with each client to encourage a realistic basis on which to build consistent emotional stability, increase capacity to adapt to change, and develop coping skills that will maximize potential to function in all aspects of daily living. In working toward these goals, we provide treatment to any person over the age of 4, regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation or physical or medical disability.
