The therapy practice is called Lotus Psychology Practice because we find ourselves inspired by the lotus flower. It grows beautifully out of the mud. Many get stuck in the mud and fail to see their inner strengths and beauty.
At Lotus Psychology Practice we help you get out the mud and help you find your strength.
As your therapist, I will help you share your story to better understand how it may be presenting problems for you in the present, because as Maya Angelou wrote, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”( I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings)

I am a licensed psychologist in the state of New York and a certified school psychologist.

My name is Andrea Keltos. I am a licensed social worker (LMSW). I specialize in working with children and adolescents (and their families), all the way up to young adulthood. I have experience supporting this population in and out of school-based settings. I strongly value the power of a positive social-emotional learning experience. I also work with adolescents during transitional periods to cope with change, loss, and conflict.
I utilize various dialectical behavioral techniques to foster emotional regulation skills, distress tolerance, mindfulness and interpersonal relationship building skills. I am client centered and strongly value a positive therapeutic connection.
