Serving All of New York & New Jersey

Amos Wolff, LMFT

Whether this is your first time in therapy or another chapter on your quest for fulfillment, I am dedicated to meeting you where you are.

LGBTQ+ Affirming –
Harm Reduction Practitioner, Sex Therapy Trained

After a decade long career as an actor, Amos refocused his passion for storytelling to be of service to individuals, couples, and families on their quest to reconcile relationships and explore identity. As a trained couples and family therapist, Amos believes that our reality is constructed by past, present, and future relationships. He believes that guided introspection leading to actionable connections is a tonic in an increasingly isolating, and volatile world.

A native New Yorker, Amos grew up in an artistic household in the Hudson Valley, where play was encouraged as a means of expression and exploration. From an early age the theatre was a space for him to channel his energy, hone his talents, and most importantly, feel embraced by a community of likeminded folks. He discovered yoga and meditation as a teenager to help balance the high-intensity training in the performing arts and has consistently returned to this practice throughout his life to maintain equilibrium. He completed a 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and a Trauma informed training in 2018.

Amos is a member of the Steering Committee at The Institute for Human Identity, the nation’s first and longest running provider of LGBTQ+- affirming therapy, where he serves as the Intern Coordinator and Staff Therapist. He has been involved in the New York Marriage and Family Therapy Network (NYMFTN) since 2018, leading major initiatives for the past two years to increase diversity, equity, and inclusivity. Amos currently lives in New Jersey with his husband, their newly adopted child, and dog HattieMae. For pleasure, Amos enjoys cooking, hiking in nature, and exploring all of the rich cultural variety New York City has to offer.

Amos will strive to meet you as you are, meaningfully deconstruct aspects of your life which may be constricting your potential, while celebrating your unique strengths.

The diversity of my passions, both in the city and outside it, has taught me firsthand the difficulty of balancing passion and responsibility.

The diversity of my passions, both in the city and outside it, has taught me firsthand the difficulty of balancing passion and responsibility.

Exploring the relationships and systems in which we are a part of is a necessary part of healing. Relationships shape our foundations; they have the potential to provide the greatest joy imaginable but can also become a source of tumultuous struggle. It takes great bravery for couples or individuals to take the step of entering therapy, but the rewards of this work can be immense. My goal is to develop a collaborative, non-pathologizing space for you to connect, communicate and navigate through conflict with those you love.

A native of the Boston area, I have lived in many parts of the country, but New York has been my home since 2013. Originally drawn here by my pursuits in the performing arts, my training and experience as an actor has informed my current work as a therapist. In addition to my love of theater, I am avidly active in the outdoors and can frequently be found surfing, hiking, and skiing. I have always been driven to understand and validate the emotional lives of those around me and have learned that embracing and prioritizing our sources of joy is vital to our well-being.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist in training completing my master’s degree at Iona University, I’m driven by curiosity and kindness. Influenced by Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Trauma Informed Care, I draw from my training and lived experience to meet you where you are. I understand that those in marginalized communities have faced unique challenges navigating their identity; with sensitivity to the intersections of race, ethnicity, orientation, gender, social class, and ability, together we will discover greater fulfillment and deeper connection with yourself and in your relationships.

I am committed to building a safe, inclusive therapeutic relationship where we can celebrate all of your unique identities & strengths.

I am committed to building a safe, inclusive therapeutic relationship where we can celebrate all of your unique identities & strengths.

Our relationships impact the way we treat ourselves. Moments in our upbringing or adult life that felt affirming or caused hurt reinforce behaviors and teach us how to be in future relationships. As a systemic practitioner, I utilize a biopsychosocial model of mental health to examine patterned behaviors that stem from lessons learned from these relationships to hopefully help alleviate pain. Our work together will focus towards greater acceptance of a self-image that is not tainted by the preferences of others.

I am committed to guiding you and your loved ones through an exploration of the many wonderful facets of human emotions that socialization has encouraged us to siphon off as good or bad. Through humanistic and experiential approaches, like mindfulness and breath work, we will shift from judgment towards curiosity of what lies beneath challenging moments. By examining the narratives that make up our core values and the roles we perform in our relationships, we can begin to unravel the stuck patterns in our relationships and create space for growth and transformation.

I am committed to building a safe therapeutic relationship where you are celebrated for all of your unique strengths. My practice utilizes affirming frameworks that embrace LGBTQIA+ and sex-positive identities as well as the intersectionality of communities of culture. Together we can build a safe and uplifting space where connection is paramount.

With an emphasis on emotionally focused attachment, I can help you identify the impact significant relationships in your past have on your present behavior and beliefs. We can use that insight to actively build stronger connections and establish healthy boundaries.

Whether you’re single, dating, in a partnership (or identify your relationship another way!), couples counseling and family therapy provides a space to learn skills for better communication. With an emphasis on emotionally focused attachment, I can help you identify the impact significant relationships in your past have on your present behavior and beliefs. We can use that insight to actively build stronger connections and establish healthy boundaries. My systemic lens also aims to address the impact racism, classism, patriarchy, homophobia and sexism has on mental health, whether you identify with a dominant or minority group.

With a lighthearted, empathetic, non-pathologizing approach, I offer pleasure-positive, affirming therapy for clients across the gender + sexuality spectrum. Our relationships both at work and home, as well as the communities we live in, impact our well-being, and while we can’t always control those circumstances, we can learn how to live better within them.

My 10+ years working in public relations for women-and minority-owned small businesses has taught me the importance of cultivating strong relationships, as well as the impact and healing potential of storytelling. Let’s learn (and hopefully laugh) together as we explore your authentic self and ability to influence your lived experience.

I grew up in Southern California and spent over a decade in Los Angeles before moving to Brooklyn in 2021. I spend my free time exploring all the culture NYC has to offer–restaurants, shops, theater, museums, classes, parks, concerts! Or for a more low-key day, I’ll take my pom mix Roscoe for a walk around the park, curl up with a book, or experiment with an ambitious cooking or baking project.

After a twenty-year writing career, I felt called to become a psychotherapist to help people integrate their lives with their truth, something too often splintered by societal pressures.

After a twenty-year writing career, I felt called to become a psychotherapist to help people integrate their lives with their truth, something too often splintered by societal pressures. I believe deeply in your capacity for healing and growth; we will work collaboratively to experience a fuller range of creative expression: from joy and silliness to rage and sorrow. Transitions like coupling and decoupling, sexuality awakening, fertility and parenthood, empty-nesting, and menopause force us into personal evolution. My unique biopsychosocial and spiritual lens lets us examine modern challenges within yourself and your relationships.

Along with formal training as a couples and family therapist, I am inspired by Narrative, Experiential and IFS approaches. I utilize principles from Open Dialogue as a way into deep listening. My own decades-long meditation and breathwork practices help ground our work of re-integration of body, mind and spirit. For those interested, I am trained as a psychedelic facilitator (SoundMind Institute) and can help prepare for and integrate psychedelic experiences.

Together we can call on practices of meaning-making and rituals of grief and celebration for life’s dynamics. I welcome clients with curiosity and a trauma-informed, anti-oppression lens. It is my privilege to hold, with both playfulness and contemplation, a safe and supportive space for you to reclaim your rightful place as protagonist of your own story.

Marriage & Family Therapist

Marriage & Family Therapist

In Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT), the unit of treatment isn’t just the person – even if only a single person is interviewed – it is the set of relationships in which the person is embedded. MFTs take a holistic perspective to health care; they are concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families.

Marriage and Family Therapists are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems and licensed to assess and treat mental and emotional disorders. They do so within the context of all relationship structures including marriage, couples and family systems. Marriage and family therapists treat a wide range of serious clinical problems including: depression, marital problems, anxiety, individual psychological problems, and child-parent problems.

After receiving treatment, almost 90% of clients report an improvement in their emotional health, and nearly two-thirds report an improvement in their overall physical health. A majority of clients report an improvement in their functioning at work.
