Welcome to BCS Group (Formerly Brooklyn Counseling Services)

Since 1995, Brooklyn Counseling Services has been dedicated to providing psychological and emotional support through all stages of a persons life. The program was founded by Dr. Nicoletta Pallotta, MD, LCSW, who also opened the women’s medical center, Brooklyn Women’s Services. She recognized that medical care was fragmented and saw the essential connection between physical and emotional health. Dr. Pallotta believes that it is vital to nurture physical and emotional health for all members of the family. This belief has lead BCS to be one of the most successful mental healthcare providers in the Brooklyn community.

Today, the BCS Group has grown to include Practices in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Heights, Staten Island, Dyker Heights, Flatbush, Downtown Brooklyn, and Online Counseling (Video Chat Counseling). Continuing its commitment to provide professional, compassionate and reliable mental healthcare to the Brooklyn Community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide complete psychological services for the New York community. We try to meet the needs of the person with a comprehensive approach, whether its individual, couple or family counseling. BCS Group also offers specialized support groups such as women’s issues, parenting and self-esteem groups.


BCS believes that education is an important piece of our patient’s treatment. We hope to provide you with the tools and resources to assist you outside of your counseling session.
