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 :)

I saw Dr. Schaeffer for just about a year and he was so helpful in getting my sleep back on track, and helping myself to realize the larger issues that were contributing to my sleep problems. After my sleep improved, I continued to see Dr. Schaeffer because he was helping me better understand myself more clearly.

Dr. Fox has been nothing but wonderful in the few months I've been seeing her. She made me comfortable from the first appointment and has been great at helping me work through different issues/anxieties. I always appreciate the way she offers perspective and solutions, I feel like I've made a lot of progress with her support. She is also very flexible with scheduling and payment.

Finding a therapist you connect with can be really tough, so I consider myself extremely lucky to have found Dr. Seelig. Her guidance has been a tremendous source of support on and off for the past 2-years. She’s helped me learn, discover and grow through extremely tough times. Her non-clinical approach is refreshing and it’s always a pleasure seeing her!

Julia was great during our sessions. Great bedside manner and seemed to understand my underlying issues and, more importantly, how to handle me as a person (I don't respond well to open ended questions; very direct). I was a fan and hoped she would help. Needed to reschedule my 3rd appointment due to a work conflict - she was fine w it and offered another option because she was going on vacay after me (week). I didn't respond to her in time as I was in Europe. Received an email with deadline for confirming appointment. Didn't respond in time and never heard from her again. Not sure I would have handled it that way if my job were to make people better.

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.

Subfields of psychology

Psychology has a diverse spectrum of areas of study. Some practitioners may work alone with patients, while others work with health care teams. The most common subfields of psychology are:

  • Clinical psychology: This subfield aims at personality development by relieving dysfunction caused by various psychological reasons.
  • Abnormal psychology: This subfield focuses on the origin of mental illnesses, looking at unusual patterns of emotions, behavior and thoughts.
  • Biopsychology: This one focuses on the relationship between behavior and biology, determining how biological changes can cause changes in behavior.
  • Cognitive psychology: This subfield studies human memory, thinking process and perception.
  • Health psychology: This one studies how psychological, biological and social factors affect a person’s health.
  • Social psychology: And this subfield focuses on how a person’s behavior is observed in different social settings.
