Dan Sharir, PhD, LMHC

Psychotherapist

Professional statement

Do you feel that your anxiety is overwhelming you? Do you wish to find a way to cope with your anxiety? Every person can occasionally become anxious and anxiety can be a normal part of life. However, when worries do not go away and actually intensify over time then they can impact your ability to function. I use cognitive behavioral therapy to help you overcome your anxiety. This is a short-term goal oriented approach that aims to change your pattern of thinking and associated behaviors connected to those thoughts. Working together with you I look at the way your thoughts and attitudes that you have about different issues impact your behaviors. Once you understand the connection it becomes easier for you to cope with the anxiety symptoms. I also provide online therapy using a secure site. My rates are affordable. In my website you can find more information about the techniques I use and also information about the different types of anxiety disorders www.wellnessandtherapynyc.com

Dr. Dan Sharir is easy to talk to and I never feel pressured at our appointments. He does not push me to do things I do not want to, and provides alternative methods for treatment that I can accept. He isvery good at explaining things in a way that I can understand and seems very passionate about what he does. Definitely reccomend :)

Has a mocking tone whenever one talks to him about serious things. This is increadible irresponsable for someone who you have too trust with your feelings and problems. Doesn't offer advice. Just tries to keep you talking till your time runs out.

My wife and I have been seeing Dan for a little over two years and I have to say as a Doctor and therapist his demeanor and manner are outstanding. He will listen all session if needed and provide suggestion andtechniques for destressing and disengaging from stressors. He also makes time for you 24hrs. a day and is genuine with his empathy, compassion, overall caring about you and your family's health and well being there where many instances where Dan has made himself available around the clock for my wife and I on his own personal time and not getting paid for it. Honestly speaking I don't know anyone who will truly go to the depths of getting your mental health and life in order. I truly appreciate Dr. Sharir as a Doctor and as a person and I would most certainly recommend him to anyone who is in need of treatment.

I've been Dan's patient for over a year. He is thoughtful, professional, and a great therapist. He's also a professor who teaches other therapists, so I've found that background helpful when asking him for strategies and tools for use in mydaily life. His office is great, both for its location and amenities. 34th St is easy to access via mass transit. And the building itself always has front desk staff on the first floor and another for his office area which is designed for therapy. Dan's very easy to reach via e-mail, text, or phone. Scheduling with him is always easy and reliable. He has my full recommendation.

I highly recommend Dr. Sharir. He is insightful and has many techniques and exercises in cognitive therapy. Working on the mind and rewiring the brain is an ongoing process which takes time and work. He is a great listener and supplieshis patients with excellent tools to help you grow and succeed in life. He is pleasant, respectful, and professional.

Dr. Sharir is great! I spent about 5 months trying out different therapist/psychiatrists and finally found one that is really helpful! -Not to mention the no wait time :) I've seen him three times so far and always leave feeling likeI got a lot out of our visits. The things we discuss stick with me. He steers away from labels and focuses more on the cognitive behavioral approach which I like (and need)!

I've had the opportunity to work with Dr. Sharir for a while now. I always leave his office with positivity and feeling like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I find him to be knowledgeable, insightful, intuitive and respectful.I highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking help from a psychologist.

He didn’t listen to me or help me at all when I asked him straight forward questions. He just shrugged and told me ‘that’s the way things are’ when I was there specifically to get help dealing with sexism. As amental health professional, I expected him to give me tools and resources to help me deal with every day sexism and all he said was ‘that’s the way things are and people aren’t going to change.’ Completely unhelpful and a waste of money. Zocdoc also said he was covered by my insurance but when I got there he charged me an extra money out of pocket. I will never go back to this man, nor will I recommend him to anyone. As someone who is dealing with sexism and male condescension on an everyday basis, this man made those problems worse instead of helping me through them. Disgusted and livid.
