Social Emotional Learning New York (SELNY) is a psychotherapy clinic and adult learning center in midtown Manhattan. SELNY enhances intimate and professional relationships through adventures, experiential learning events, and personal and group therapy sessions. The clinic’s inclusive design reflects and attends to the needs of people of color and the LGBTQ community. SELNY also hosts team building events and corporate wellness activities for employers invested in enhancing cooperation and cohesion between their team members. By involving patients in the design process, we learned that a familial feel is critical for therapy. So, we disguised this clinic as a home. As a result, the physical environment fosters a sense of safety and comfort for patients. This comfort allows for the trust and dialogue needed for effective therapy and betterment.
