My Approach to Helping

I am a contemporary gestalt therapist. Our attention is the present and how the past is influencing it. Therapy is a collaborative process. I actively participate in the sessions to help my patients achieve insight into the concerns that brought them to see me.

My work is phenomenological and existential. This means that we pay especial attention to current experience and the meaning of persons' lives as it is relevant to our work.

I engage with both my intelligence and empathy. I see therapeutic work as releasing a person's implicit creativity, which enables a person to find new solutions ways of experiencing the world.

I have expertise in online sessions.

My website contains a description of my approach: www.danbloomnyc.com.

More Info About My Practice

I teach, train, and supervise psychotherapists internationally. I am on the faculty of psychotherapy institutes in the United States and Europe. I've presented at conferences in 8 countries. My writings have been translated into many languages. I edit journals and books. All of this is in the field of clinical practice. My website describes me in more detail -- www.danbloomnyc.com.
I was an attorney before I became a psychotherapist.

A substantial part of my work is online with people from around the world. I am an accredited member and supervisor of the European Association for Gestalt Therapy. I am president and fellow of the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy.

I am an out-of-network insurance provider, which means portions of my fees are reimbursed directly to patients under the terms of their insurance plan.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

I welcome a person into my office, not a diagnosis. A person suffers, not some diagnosis given by a clinician. A diagnosis feels no pain, cannot laugh, or weep, desire or hope.

I never lose track of this simple and crucial humanistic value.
