I have been working with Dr. Fuller for a few years now, and he is nothing short of incredible. He is empathetic, understanding and personable and really puts you at ease. He is also extremely knowledgeable and often explains his treatment rationale in easily understandable ways. I really cannot say enough good things about him or his practice; he is committed to helping you and is beyond professional. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Fuller -- he's the best!

I feel Dr. Nathan took the time to really get to know me and knows me so well. She has definitely been very helpful and has the good judgement to always ask "Do you want my opinion?" because sometimes, I do and sometimes I don't and just want to talk. She is always respectful and responsive to what I need regarding my problem.

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.
