Joanne Gerr, LCSW

Psychotherapist

Professional statement

I see therapy as a joint process in which we work together to help you attain your goals. I specialize in Eating Disorder Counseling and Support Groups, and I also work extensively and effectively with clients to overcome Anxiety, Depression, ADD, Relationship Issues and Stressful Situations. Whether the concern is Self-Esteem, Weight Problems or Unfulfilling Relationships, Psychotherapy and Couples Counseling can help you to Get Unstuck. As a highly trained and experienced solution-focused therapist in midtown Manhattan and New Jersey, my goal is to help you resolve difficult issues, find happiness and and grow into your potential. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying a variety of empirically-based strategies tailored to your needs, I will empower you to change behavior patterns, unconscious blocks, and cognitive distortions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and joyous life. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you. I have a particular sensitivity to the issues of diverse populations including Orthodox Jews and the LGBT community. I am also highly experienced in working with single women and men, couples, children, teens, and older adults. Please call me for an individual consultation or to join a support group in my New York or New Jersey office. My New York office is centrally located near Grand Central and Bryant Park (easily accessible from all over Manhattan, the boroughs, as well as New Jersey and Connecticut.) My New Jersey office is centrally located.
