I think what I appreciate most about Dr. Glickman is his gentle but direct approach. He has not only been incredibly knowledgeable and insightful, but also down to earth and very easy to talk to. He has helped me immensely and I'm not sure I'd be where I am today without him.

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.
