Stephen Shainbart, PhD, Psychologist in New York
Are you looking for a therapist who will not only listen to you, but also offer constructive feedback, instead of just sitting quietly? The purpose of my work is to decrease your suffering while helping you fulfill your potential as an individual. The goal is to enhance your self-awareness and liberate you from self-defeating patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I should also mention that while I take my job very seriously, I believe there is a place for humor in my work.
My main priority is to create a setting in which you feel understood and free to express and learn about yourself. Creating such an atmosphere always varies depending on the individual. This means that together, over time, we will "custom-fit" your therapy to facilitate your psychological growth.
COUPLES THERAPY: I provide you with direct feedback and suggestions on how to make productive changes to your relationship. But I assure you that these suggestions are based on a thorough understanding of who you are as individuals, within the context of your unique "backstory" and resulting emotional patterns.
