Debra Rothschild, PhD, CASAC, Psychologist in New York
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a NYS Credentialed Substance Use Counselor. I see adults of all ages in a comfortable, private and safe setting on the Upper West Side. I think dynamically, but work eclectically. I coach behavioral changes while exploring beliefs, reactions and motivations so you understand yourself better and enhance your options in living. I deeply believe that the more we understand ourselves and our motivations, the greater will be our power to take control of things that previously seemed inevitable.
Whether you want help with relationship, career, family problems, self esteem issues, trauma recent or past, or general dissatisfaction, unhappiness or anxiety, I offer a listening ear, support, and active feedback. I believe you know best what you want, so you determine your goals; my goal is to help you achieve them..
If you are coming for help with substance misuse, I will work with you to figure out what, if anything, is harmful about your use and help you to reduce that harm. We will work together until your goals become clear and I will help you attain them, whether they be sobriety or moderate use.
