Just off first impressions: Jennifer was awesome and I look forward to meeting with her again. The office was definitely bare bones and not what I was expecting at all. It was a little off putting at first but something I could get used to.

The wait was a bit long but I didn't mind at all. For me it is still a 5 star establishment. As someone else stated on here. They are like a breath of fresh air :) Also, the receptionist is awesome. She is the first receptionist who seems to love what she does, and that happy and positive energy is felt and appreciated :)

New York Psychologists

The American Psychological Association defines psychology as “the study of the mind and behavior.” It studies mental processes like a person’s personality, cognition, behavior, reaction and emotions, which can vary significantly from person to person. A licensed psychologist is a clinically trained professional, providing help with mental health conditions. They help enable people to cope effectively with the daily struggles brought on by psychological conditions. Anxiety disorders, mood disorders like depression, mental disorders like schizophrenia, and health issues like addictions are the most common reasons to visit a psychologist. Apart from these, patients also seek professional help to resolve conflicts, deal with insomnia, and cope with changes in life, among other reasons.

 

A psychology consultation revolves around understanding the patient’s reason for visiting, diagnosing the nature of the problem and deciding a course of treatment for the patient. Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, provides a relaxing environment for the patient and counselor to have an elaborate discussion to identify behavior or thought patterns. There are various approaches to talk therapy, and the type that is best-suited for your needs depends entirely on your unique situation. While seeking help from friends and family can be comforting, it is best advised to visit a professional to seek treatment that can enhance your quality of life.
