Lana Hurst

Lana Hurst (she/her) cares deeply about helping her client’s step into their journeys with greater courage and authenticity. Her work with clients includes those navigating gender identity, sexual orientation, relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, spiritual issues, and religious trauma. 

As a transgender woman, Lana believes that every person deserves a safe space to process their experiences, become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and discern what a more integrated life can look like. She is passionate about facilitating experiences that enable people to feel more connected to others and themselves. 

Lana draws from a wealth of therapeutic approaches in her work. These modalities include psychodynamic, client-centered, cognitive behavioral, family systems, and narrative therapies. Her hope is that clients will feel increasingly empowered and integrated.

Lana is originally from a small town in North Florida, though she has lived up and down the East Coast and the UK. She has worked in a variety of churches and schools since graduating from Southeastern University with a BS in Practical Theology and an MA in Ministerial Leadership, as well as Princeton Theological Seminary with an MDiv. Most recently Lana completed her MA in Mental Health Counseling and Spiritual Integration at Fordham University.

Lana is a pre-licensed mental health counselor in New York State and sees clients virtually and in person at the PSI Fulton Street office.
