Dr. Iris McGuire

Psychologist , PhD

(646) 386-2143
Having practiced for more than 35 years in NYC, and now in White Plains, NY and Stamford, CT as well, I work primarily with patients suffering from panic attacks and/or other anxiety disorders and depression. These are highly treatable conditions and I see fairly rapid progress. I deal with issues that arise from patients' needs to avoid uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. I also teach assertiveness and communication skills to enhance relationships. Being successfully married for 40 years, I bring a wealth of personal experience to couples counseling. Therapy is centered on giving people the tools they need to move on and enjoy their lives.
I am a cognitive-behavioral therapist. Many of my patients left psychoanalysis because they weren't taught tools needed for change. I teach coping skills, relaxation techniques and rational thinking. I focus on the present, and am very goal oriented. With couples, I focus on conflict resolution and effective communication. Therapy is usually short term.
Having overcome panic attacks and depression myself, I am especially skilled in teaching others the techniques I have learned. Patients tell me that I understand where they are coming from and am very supportive. Although I am not in any networks, I offer special rates for seniors and those with "out of network" insurance coverage.
