Headway

Robert

I was an early adopter of teletherapy and have years of experience doing it. I have found teletherapy to be very helpful especially when meeting in-person is not an option.


I provide both individual and group psychotherapy and also offer therapy via videoconferencing to NYS residents on a HIPAA-compliant platform. I have expertise in the following areas: mood problems, substance misuse, trauma, and LGBT issues. I have worked in private practice as well as in mental health and substance abuse treatment facilities and clinics, including the highly respected Addiction Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital. I practice from a harm reduction perspective and incorporate multiple other evidence-based practices into my work.



I was trained in EMDR by the EMDR Institute in Watsonville, California. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.



I have over 40 years of experience. I have trained dozens of Masters and Doctoral students, and Post-Doctoral fellows, in the application of of the latest group and individual psychotherapeutic techniques. For those wondering about or struggling with substance use: I have no preconceived ideas about what you should or should not do about your substance use.
