My Approach to Helping
I know that making that first call is difficult and that is very normal, but please don't let it hold you back from getting the help and guidance you want and deserve. I am a person just like you, I face the same issues and concerns as you. We are all in this "thing" called life together and it is my goal to help you get through it as unhurt and unscathed as possible. I can help you to became the happiest, healthiest person you can be, free of the self-doubt, fear, and depression of not being "good enough." I identify the issue or problem you present to me and correct it ASAP, and then help you on your way. You can find out more about my practice on my website.
More Info About My Practice
I take the following insurances: GHI, Value Options, Cigna, Blue Cross and Blue shield, and Empire. I also provide a sliding scale for those in need, so please call, let me help. I also work closely with my female colleague intern, Anastasia, for those who might prefer speaking to a woman.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
In addition to CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), I use a technique called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing), this technique is you using your own brain to heal itself from any past trauma or issues that makes you feel poorly about yourself today. I know that sounds weird or odd, I couldn't agree more, I refused to study it until some one sat me down and told me how very powerful it was and that it was the equivalent of a year or two of therapy in three sessions. I studied it and have been doing it for 10 years now and never get tired of seeing peoples pain and suffering dissipate before me.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
No one can see themselves clearly because it's them, not even me. We need someone from the "outside" to help us to see ourselves clearly, someone you can trust and talk to about anything only to find that you are not alone, that thousands of others have similar issues and insecurities, but can't share them with anyone. Therapy can help you to understand that universality of these issues and concerns. It is very powerful and effective to know that you are not alone.
