Due to this, there is flexibility in the times and days of when you will be able to receive the therapy from our caring professional clinicians. Now more than ever if you are if you need therapy please reach out. If you are unable to pay, or are worried about the ability to pay, we stress to not let this be a barrier to your therapy. We will work with you to receive the support you need.

MDCS stands in the fight with Black Lives Matter. MDCS staff continue to support anti-oppressive and anti-racist actions in New York and across the globe. We pride ourselves on maintaining an environment for staff and clients to explore how injustices have impacted each individual.
