Child and Adolescent Counseling
Today’s youth face an unprecedented amount of stress that is unique to this generation. Heavy academic demands, the constant pressure of social media and social challenges our young people are facing has left many feeling anxious and overwhelmed. Many of our team members also serve as school based social workers and have extensive experience with these ages and their families. Our clinicians have an intimate knowledge of the stressors that our young people face and the pressures that are put on them. Our team understands what our younger clients are experiencing and focus on providing them with positive coping skills and resilience skills that can benefit them for a lifetime.
Parenting Support and Training
Parenting during this challenging time, or any time, is never easy and that is okay. You are not alone. Reaching out for support and advice for yourself and your spouse can be helpful as you navigate parenting through elementary aged, tween, adolescent and college bound. We have a team of clinicians that focus on providing parents with the tools they need to create a positive environment at home and support them through difficult life stages and situations. By empowering and supporting parents, they in turn can better support and empower their own children.
Couples and Family Counseling
Growing together with our loved ones can be an amazing gift. Somewhere along the line we sometimes struggle with those closest to us. We may bring our old emotional issues into a new relationship or perhaps we find our old ways of communicating with our loved one is no longer working the way it used to. Change is difficult but taking steps to increase communication and sort out our old beliefs that no longer serve us, can bring new light and joy to the relationships we cherish.
Addiction Recovery Support
After we have faced our addiction and admitted to our problem, we are now faced with the new challenge of recovery. Living life on life's terms for a recovering person has its challenges whether in recovery for 3 months or 30 years. Support through 12 step programs can provide tremendous support. Individual treatment with a therapist who understands the challenges of addiction and recovery can be equally valuable to any 12 step support system. You do not have to recover alone.
Walk and Talk/Outdoor
Sometimes we all need to get outdoors for a while. Walk and talk therapy is an extremely effective way for a therapist and client to build rapport and humanize one another. Many children and adolescents may feel more comfortable walking during their sessions as opposed to sitting in an office. At our practice locations, we are fortunate enough to have an amazing little town with a beautiful waterfront park and we are nearby to Cold Spring Harbor State Park, both of which provide a beautiful, private and comforting environment to “walk & talk” with one of our therapists. Many times in the evening, sitting outside in the “Sweetie Pies Garden” behind our office is also a great option.

Counseling for Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety & depression are frequently interconnected and can have challenging effects on our personal and professional lives. Finding evidence based strategies to counter the negative thought patterns we have can become a valuable tool for our recovery. Together we can explore these patterns and find strategies to replace them with more positive and nurturing patterns.
Addiction Treatment and Assessment
Addiction can take many shapes and forms. Addictions to drugs, alcohol, relationships, shopping, gambling, food or sex have become a symptom of a society looking to escape from our pain. Fear of facing these facts can be overwhelming and denying to our addictions will continue to cause pain. Finally facing our addictions is not something that we have to do alone.
Formally assessing if you or your loved one are struggling with an addiction or some other is the first step towards getting the help needed. We have the experience and tools needed to asses for addiction and mental health issues and help choose a course of action most appropriate for treatment. Additionally we can connect you to the services best able to fit you or your loved ones needs. From Inpatient services, to intensive outpatients, to self-help groups to individual treatment we can connect you with the supports needed to succeed.
