About Our Clinic: Help For A Variety Of Problems
Counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, EMDR, psychological evaluation, and neuro-psychological testing are services performed by therapists in our graduate and post-graduate training program. These therapists are credentialed in their respective fields and are working under the supervision of experienced psychoanalytic supervisors.
NIP offers treatment to the community in both our Treatment Center located in mid-town Manhattan and in therapist offices throughout Manhattan. All fees are set on a sliding scale basis. NIP patients seek help with a variety of problems including: anxiety, depression, relationship problems, problems stemming from drug abuse in their families, feelings of low self esteem, trauma, developmental delays, addiction problems, problems with authority and general feelings of dissatisfaction in their lives.
At NIP, therapy relies on a collaborative inquiry into specific problems that may be interfering with the person's private or social life.
We Use A Treatment Approach That Is Effective For You
Many kinds of problems can be treated and significant personality changes can occur. Long-standing personality patterns, conflicts and anxiety can often be treated effectively in psychotherapy. However, when appropriate, the treatment of choice for some problems may be psychoanalysis. In psychoanalysis, in contrast to psychotherapy, the patient and therapist may meet up to three times per week allowing for a deeper exploration of the root causes of the problem and the possibility of a more extensive examination of the patient's life. In cases of trauma, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is also available.
Although most patients' issues can be addressed in individual psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, NIP recognizes that certain issues are better addressed by other methods of treatment. An initial evaluation consultation can be arranged within 48 hours of the patient's phone call. During this first meeting, the patient and the consulting therapist will determine the patient's needs and how to best meet them.
