Our Therapy is Guided by Three Principles:
COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING
We take the time to understand you and your needs, within a non-judgmental atmosphere. We believe that a skillful and creative approach can only be helpful when it is a part of a compassionate and empathic therapy relationship. Our therapists are skilled practitioners but, more importantly, human beings with heart. Our therapists have gone into this field with a genuine desire to help. We believe that you should never be made to feel like you’re only a diagnosis or set of problems. You are a human being first. That simple statement is the most important of the three principles that guide our therapy.
We strongly believe that you should receive therapy that is researched, proven, and effective. Our therapists are highly skilled in the state-of-the-art psychotherapies known as Cognitive Therapy and Schema Therapy. Our therapists have extensive experience with these empirically-based treatments and are ready to provide you with the highest quality care.
Cognitive Therapy, developed by Dr. Aaron Beck, has been proven to be clinically effective in over 400 research studies. Our senior therapists are Founding Fellows in the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, which is the premier credentialing body for cognitive therapy. Founding Fellows are internationally recognized experts in cognitive therapy. It is a designation that is reserved for a select group of experts worldwide. The Founding Fellow credential assures the highest level of therapist skill and expertise when you search for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, NYC.
All of our therapists are certified schema therapists in the International Society for Schema Therapy. Schema therapy is an integrative, empirically validated form of therapy that was developed by Dr. Jeffrey Young to address life-long issues such as personality disorders, self-esteem, and relationship problems. All of our therapists were trained at the Schema Therapy Institute of New York and worked directly with Dr. Jeffrey Young. All have made significant contributions to the development of schema therapy.
All of our therapists are actively involved in academic projects such as writing, teaching, and supervising therapists in training.
We use our expertise and skill to modify and adapt our treatment techniques to your individual circumstances and needs. Our therapists integrate a variety of approaches to maximize the effectiveness of your therapy — we do not take a cookie-cutter approach. Flexibility and adaptation are values that we uphold and cherish.
