Michael C Singer, PhD, Psychologist in New York
I believe life can get better. My style is active and emotionally connected, always respectful of the client's concerns, whether working with adults, children, or teens. My training helps me see the "big picture," but my skills include the flexibility to focus on concrete issues. Problems are quickly identified, because therapy does not have to last for years. Yet, many clients find value in examining life over the long term, within a warm, accepting therapeutic relationship, colored by directness, honesty, and humor.
My experience includes individual, couple, and family therapy. Many clients want to obtain more satisfaction in relationships and identify life goals. Others want to address depression/anxiety, or work through loss and grief. I facilitate these changes through understanding how people develop over the lifespan, and helping to identify real opportunities for change.
I work a lot with musicians, writers, painters, and other creative artists, drawing on my own experiences in the arts and research on creativity, including such areas as performance anxiety, creative depletion/replenishment, and examining discrepancies between artistic life and personal life. I also work with small ensembles to resolve stylistic and temperamental conflict.
