Welcome to MetroPeace Psychotherapy LCSW PLLC,

Where self-discovery and empowerment intersect, guiding you towards lasting mental well-being. Founded in 2023 Metro Peace Psychotherapy is rooted in the belief that everyone deserves access to compassionate and evidence-based mental health care.

Our Story

In the wake of COVID-19, Amber Nieto, LCSW, witnessed the profound impact the pandemic had on the mental health of her community, particularly among young professionals and new graduates in New York City. Many faced disruptions in their college careers and uncertainty entering the workforce, leading to increased feelings of anxiety, depression, and helplessness. Drawing from her personal experience navigating these challenges, Amber took the bold step of transitioning into private practice, founding Metro Peace Psychotherapy to provide tailored support during these turbulent times.

At Metro Peace Psychotherapy, we recognize that true growth encompasses the interconnected facets of mental health, career, relationships, and personal fulfillment, especially post-pandemic. Embracing an eclectic therapeutic approach, we foster a culture of self-care and understanding. Therapy here goes beyond addressing immediate challenges; it's about fostering resilience, discovering strengths, and navigating transitions with confidence. Amber's firsthand experience living through the pandemic in New York City uniquely positions her to understand and empathize with the specific struggles faced by individuals in this dynamic environment, offering compassionate support on your journey of self-discovery and emotional well-being.
