From Our Clients


My partner and I used Jasmine Sundri as our couples therapist between February - May 2019. I really cannot stress how much she has helped us grow as individuals and in our marriage during those months. Jasmine gave us concrete, cognitive based therapeutic solutions and exercises to work through some significant long-term issues we had been unable to resolve over our six year relationship. She mainly helped us start listening to each other again and our relationship is immensely better for it. I'd recommend her wholeheartedly to others in similar situations, thanks a lot Jasmine!


My family was lucky to find Christina Jeffrey, she was an integral part of our healing. We had many facets to the issues we were dealing with and she managed to separate and work on each one. She was reassuring, understanding, and most of all insightful. She made us feel comfortable enough to open up, especially for those of us that hadn't experienced therapy in the past and for those of us who had and were avoiding it. I could write a book describing all the ways she helped us, but in short we would never have gotten past our issues without her. I highly recommend her - she is truly a caring person and very knowledgeable in her field.


I had the pleasure of working with Aaron. He's professional, patient, understanding, and helpful. He has quite a meditative, nonjudgmental approach to therapy - in the sense that not only is he nonjudgmental as a therapist, but he encourages you not to be judgmental with your own thoughts as you approach your challenges. Having him listen, and hearing his thoughts about my concerns have been instrumental in ensuring I'm living my best life. You're the man, Aaron.


I have worked with Benjamin for around a year or more. And it's always great to go see him. I always have great therapy sessions and they have been helping me through life always.


It is difficult to put into words how grateful I am for Rachel Landman. She has helped me change my life for the better and continues to help me learn the tools I need to grow into the person I'd like to be. I can't recommend Rachel enough to anyone who is seeking a therapist who is kind, insightful, genuine, authentic, extremely intelligent, and truly just outstanding at their job. It shows that Rachel cares deeply for the betterment of her clients and goes above and beyond what I ever wanted in a therapist. My only regret is I didn't start going to her sooner.


I worked with Diana and from being her client I can certainly say she seems to genuinely care. She has helped me with issues and concerns I've been struggling with for some time and is always flexible and understanding. This was a big factor for me as rigidity in a clinician is something I don't tend to do well with. I've been in therapy before but I feel I've made much more progress here.


I've bounced around from different therapists for years and am very pleased with my experience at Douglas Psychotherapy. Michelle Hong is amazing and so helpful and light! I look forward to our sessions every week and feel confident that she can help guide me through the toughest times.


I've been working with one of your wonderful therapists, Jordan Rands, for a couple months now. He has been a kind, thorough, and thoughtful presence as I start my therapy process - could not have asked for better.


I am delighted to recommend Paige. I have had an exceptionally difficult time through a variety of security-related anxieties that these troubling times have brought. And she helped me become much more confident, independent and willing to ensure that I can become more resilient. I have no doubts she will have an amazing career and help so many people improve on what is one of the most important issues of today's times.

Musings: Thoughts from the Clinical Side

The human mind and experience is worth exploring. In our blog, clinicians share their reflections around a wide array of psychological topics and what it is to be human.


Our Story

To understand how we got here, it’s important to know where we came from. Humantold Management is what happens when three people with very different, unique skillsets join together to collaborate and build for the greater good.

In 2005 Peter Douglas founded Douglas Psychotherapy Services; in 2018 both Rachel Landman and Christina Jeffrey came onboard. Over the next few years, under the care and administration of Rachel, Christina, and Peter, DPS continued to grow. Then came 2020. The world as we all knew it stopped, allowing us to reflect, grieve, germinate, and to a degree, recuperate. It was during this time that Peter proposed a name change. He believed we had grown beyond one person’s name; that our practice was no longer just DPS, but something more. So together, with excellent marketing and branding folks, we set out to establish and bring to the world, Humantold Psychotherapy. Since then, we’ve just kept going, continuing to look for ways to expand and grow, and meet the needs of our community here in New York City, and the world at large.

In 2022, we expanded yet again to become Humantold Management. Under this umbrella, we can provide even more options for high quality mental health and wellness care. That is why we are here: to bring some good to the world, to shine some light in the dark, to sprinkle some joy and sometimes cause a ruckus to the status quo.

We are Humantold Management, and on behalf of Rachel, Peter, Christina, and the entire Humantold Management team, we are glad you’re here.

  • Christina Jeffrey

    I believe everyone can have a resurrection story; it is an honor to be a part of yours.

  • Rachel Landman

    I focus on you, your free will, self-determination, and the search for meaning.
