I made an appointment with dr g when I was experiencing anxiety around my work, parents, and an upcoming relocation. Dr G gave me useful techniques I could start using right away and I left feeling hopeful and positive about my outlook.

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.

Unlike other therapists I’ve seen and didn’t work with, I felt connected to Greg from the start. He was genuinely interested in what was going on in my life. He treated me with warmth and empathy. He helped me through a very difficult time in my life. Can’t recommend him enough if you want to work with a therapist that really cares about you.

I have had sleep issues for many years and I have literally tried everything under the sun. I was skeptical about therapy and about whether or not it could be helpful at all. After a few sessions with Dr. Gindy, I noticed great results. I went from sleeping about 5 hours a night to about 7.5 hours each night! Also, the quality of my sleep has improved dramatically. I highly recommend meeting with her as her tips and strategies really worked!

During the time I've seen Alex I've reached goals I never thought were possible in both my work and personal life. With the tools I've learned from our time together, as well as his motivation and compassion, I feel like my best self. I used to get very hung up on minor details, but Alex has been amazing at helping me see the bigger picture.

She is incredibly thorough and thoughtful in her meetings - every time I meet with her I leave feeling refreshed and challenged to think about things in different ways. I have never left a single meeting with her without feeling like I have a better handle on something that I have been questioning over the past weeks. I'm very thankful to have found her through ZocDoc - she's an absolute gem!

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.
