At NYC Psychotherapy Associates, we believe that relationships are important. Many people come to therapy because they are not happy in their relationships or because they are experiencing symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, that are negatively impacting their relationships with others.
Most aspects of our lives involve relationships with other people. We form different types of relationships throughout our lives; with romantic partners, friends, family, and at work or school. Although each relationship is unique, we all develop certain patterns of relating to others that are often repeated in multiple areas of our lives. For example, you might develop a pattern of taking care of other people while neglecting your own needs or you could find yourself having difficulty trusting others.
Our goal is to help you understand those interpersonal patterns that aren’t working for you and to then take active steps toward positive change.
We also believe that the relationship between a client and therapist is important. In fact, research has shown that having a strong connection with your therapist is one of the most essential ingredients for successful therapy. We strive to form collaborative relationships with our clients and to create a safe, trusting environment to promote self exploration and understanding.
