Dr. Gindy is a skilled professional. She is warm, compassionate, and you can tell that she truly cares. When I started meeting with her, I felt pretty depressed and anxious. I spent most of my time at home, and felt very nervous in crowds of people. She helped me get back to my life and to change a lot of negative thoughts that I had about myself and others. When I feel anxious now, I know that I can handle it by using the tools that we have practiced together. Thank you Dr. Gindy!

Top-notch from start to finish! Dr. Barbiere is incredibly easy to talk to, compassionate, intuitive, and highly skilled. I felt better after just one acupuncture treatment and the herbs she gave me are wonderful. My sleep is dramatically improved. She is also the most gentle acupuncturist I have ever seen. The technique she uses for inserting the needles really helped me not feel a thing. I told her I was a little squeamish about the needles and she took great care to make sure that I was comfortable. And I was! I highly recommend Dr. Barbiere.

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.
