How does psychotherapy work?

I see psychotherapy as team work on your behalf and a collaboration between us that benefits your life. I approach growth and change in creative ways, guided by your pace and readiness.  In a safe warm surround difficult thoughts and emotions can be brought up  and processed so that the road to healing can begin.

What issues can we address in therapy?

We can work on a wide variety of issues  including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, procrastination, isolation, divorce counseling, dating, grief  & relationship issues. Any life problem can be hugely impacted by therapy.

What theoretical approaches and strategies do you use in therapy?

I use many different techniques  and psychotherapeutic theories in treatment including psychodynamic, cognitive, self-psychological and solution focused approaches depending on each individual situation.  I tailor treatment around your needs.

When and where can I see you in person ? 

I have two locations: one in South Riverdale in the Bronx and the second in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Please see full addresses to the right. I have appointments available Monday through Thursday, 8am- 8pm  and I have flexible hours on Fridays & Sundays.

Do you work with people by way of Tele-Therapy?

Yes! If you cannot travel to my office but are interested in Tele- therapy (like FaceTime & Skype) please let me know and we can make an appointment to meet on video. Reimbursement for some insurance plans is available for Tele-therapy.

How can I reach you if I have more questions?

Please email me at jrstr@me.com or call me at 917-362-3933 to discuss further any questions you have about starting therapy.  I do a free  phone consultation and will be happy to talk with you  about your  needs and   what you can expect from your treatment.
