This was one of the single greatest decisions in my life. I’ve never had any mental issues up until the past year, I felt crippled by my anxiety and constant bad thoughts. Dr. Glickman was very understanding and genuine, you knew he was there to help. With his advice I’ve really gotten past so many hurdles I deemed impossible. Great guy!

She was very calm and welcoming from the start, she made my partner and I feel very relaxed, comfortable, and we already feel a difference after one meeting, we will continue to see her but are more hopeful than ever about our future together. She was very professional and for someone who really was against this kind of doctors visit my opinion was changed for the better at the end. Would recommend her to my friends and family.

This was my first visit so the time spent was him getting to know me. But for the first visit it was okay. Also the room wasn't anything special (no windows) but it does its job (small room with three chairs).

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!

Until I met with Dr. Altman, I felt vulnerable bringing my 5 year old son to a therapist because he was not fully toilet trained. Dr. Altman immediately put me and my son at ease, and before I knew it, my son made his first poop in Dr. Altman's office bathroom! I highly recommend Dr. Altman to any parents who are out of answers about how to deal with their young child.

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.

  • 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.
