About Jeffrey Spodak

Taking a new look at the issues in your life is sometimes a daunting task. Beginning therapy can be a great first step towards your process of change. I am an experienced psychotherapist who works with individuals of any age, cultural background or sexual orientation. My approach is mainly psychodynamic as I believe that discovering the underlying roots to life circumstances is essential to the process of change. Towards this end, I will help you identify and change problematic patterns in your life. I specialize in working with people struggling with depression and mood disorders. I will work to develop a deeper understanding of your perspective so that together we can find ways to make your life meaningful in the ways that matter to you. My experience includes working with individuals, couples, families, people with HIV/AIDS and other medical problems, trauma survivors, substance use populations, geriatric populations and performing crisis intervention when needed. Regardless of what you would like to work on, I will be committed to helping you reach your goals.

Been going to Dr. Spodak's for a few months now. I've had many, many breakthroughs with him, in a shorter timeframe than ever before with any therapist. Highly recommended -- the road to getting to know and understand yourself isn't easy, but it is completely worth it.

Dr. Spodak is a trusted confidante. He has created a non-judgmental space where I can freely search for the meaning ofmy life. New York city is fast paced, competitive and tough. In sessions with Dr. Spodak, I escape the daily rat race with an ally who is thoughtful, patient and kind. Through conversation and gentle direction, he lets me feel in control of each session while prompting me to look more deeply at the whys of my present conduct, current relationships and their connections with my past. Sometimes family, sometimes work, sometimes friends are on my mind. Whatever the topic, he handles it thoughtfully, and with respect and attention. It is not enough to say that he is a good listener. He is insightful and often provocative. I find myself considering the content of our discussions long after I leave the consulting room, and routinely discover clarity in my actions and reactions I have never been able to see previously. I highly recommend Dr. Spodak to anyone who is willing to put work into therapy.
