    Welcome!

    We’re so glad you’re here!

    We are a team of licensed psychotherapists who uniquely blend traditional psychotherapy with creative arts therapies and body-mind healing arts like yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Whether you choose to work with us in Traditional (Talk) Psychotherapy, Art Therapy, Dance-Movement Therapy, Yoga Therapy, or most likely an integrated combination, our aim is to provide for you a refuge to express, explore and embrace your deepest truths, gain clarity and build resilience, find balance and direction, and gain new insights and new skills, so that you can live your life more authentically, with more courage and connection, more peace, presence, purpose and passion.

    During these uncertain times, with anxiety, depression, loneliness, and grief chipping away at us, getting extra support is especially vital. Honoring and engaging ALL of you – mind, body and spirit – is not just a luxury, but paramount for creating and maintaining health, healing and personal growth.

    Welcoming to All


    Our primary goal is to provide a safe, supportive space where you feel seen, heard, and met. An inclusive, anti-racist, culturally humble, LGBTQ+ celebrating, welcoming-to-all environment is step one for effective psychotherapy. We profoundly honor the full spectrum of diversity that makes up the human race.

    Welcome to our practice! We are accepting new clients for telehealth AND limited in-person psychotherapy! We are licensed in New York and New Jersey and work exclusively with adults. We are here for you and would be honored to join you on your path. We look forward to meeting you!

    Talk Therapy


     

    Having a safe space to explore, express, and get support from someone there for you each week can bring relief, new insights, personal growth, and healing for mind, body and spirit.

    Yoga Therapy


    Embodied psychotherapies allow us to tap into the wisdom of the body to explore, experience and integrate unconscious material and effect profound change.

    SPIRIT

    Art Therapy


     

    Art Therapy engages the creative source inherent in each of us to enhance the therapy process when words alone are not enough. Each session becomes a natural unfolding of discovery.

    Let's connect online and get started!

    Ricki Grater, Clinical Director

    Hello and welcome! I’ve created Grater Therapy Group to offer a spectrum of holistic psychotherapies to address the growing need for quality and affordable mental health care. I’ve brought together a group of passionate, skilled, empathic and creative psychotherapists who I trust to give their utmost care and expertise to each of their clients. As Clinical Director, I am hands-on (behind the scenes) and oversee every client’s progress. Please explore all we have to offer!

    As for me, in addition to being a licensed psychotherapist (LCSW), I am also a dance-movement therapist (BC-DMT) and yoga therapist (C-IAYT), so our work together may include meditation, breathwork, body-based explorations or yogic technologies in addition to traditional talk psychotherapy. My clinical experience spans over 25 years and I have worked with the full-range of issues that adults may face. Whatever your goals and aspirations, I will bring my presence, compassion, and wisdom to help you reach them.

    Thank you for visiting our site and if it feels like a good fit, reach out today to connect with one of our therapists.

    THE GUEST HOUSE

    This being human is a guest house.
    Every morning a new arrival.

    A joy, a depression, a meanness,
    some momentary awareness comes
    as an unexpected visitor.

    Welcome and entertain them all!
    Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
    who violently sweep your house
    empty of its furniture,
    still, treat each guest honorably.
    He may be clearing you out
    for some new delight.

    The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
    meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

    Be grateful for whatever comes.
    because each has been sent
    as a guide from beyond.
