Dr. Devon MacDermott


I am a psychologist practicing in New York City offering mindfulness-based,  energetic, compassionate therapy that emphasizes embracing greater kindness, creativity, patience, and genuineness.

I use a flexible, integrative approach that meets you where you are. With extensive training in mindfulness, trauma recovery, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and humanistic therapy, I can teach you to overcome painful patterns and improve your work, relationships, and life.

Psychotherapy offers a beautiful and unique opportunity for healing, self-discovery, and resilience. I am reminded daily of the honor of being allowed to see my clients’ true selves and participate in their growth. It is an honor that I cherish.

Please contact me if you think we may be a good fit for pursuing your growth.
