The Counseling Center

Due to recent health advisories from New York City and State, we will be conducting all visits to the Counseling Center remotely through telehealth videoconferencing. This means that our physical location is closed and we are only doing video sessions through a secure platform. Students needing crisis counseling can talk to a therapist 24/7 by calling 718.687.5356. To schedule a consultation, please call 718.687.5356 or email at


Counseling and Psychotherapy

Confidential counseling services are available to all enrolled Pratt students. Licensed mental health professionals including psychologists (Dr. Caroline Kasnakian, Dr. Olga Poznansky, Dr. Pinchus Feintuch and Dr. Althea Maduramente) and clinical social workers (Jernee Montoya) provide all services. Pratt also uses a psychiatrist to provide further evaluation for psychotropic medications when needed.

Scheduling an Appointment

When you contact Counseling Services, you will be offered the earliest appointment available. Following an initial assessment, short-term individual therapy or group therapy with one of our staff therapists may be recommended; alternatively, a staff therapist may determine that your needs would be best served by a referral to an off-campus treatment provider. Our staff therapists will try their best to accommodate your service requests but ultimately must use their professional judgment to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
