About

I am a licensed social worker, a certified addiction counselor, and a Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT Candidate). I focus much of my work with individuals struggling with addiction (alcohol, drugs, gambling, internet, sex). Many individuals find their lives and relationships paralyzed by the grasp of various addictions, and I have helped countless individuals liberate themselves. Many of my clients feel stuck in life, struggling with anxiety, depression, or difficulty adjusting to changes in their lives. I am also a big believer in the use of mindfulness as a tool for change, as well as group therapy.
Within addiction, I use a number of different modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), 12-step based work (i.e. Alcoholics Anonymous), Motivational Interviewing, Family and Trauma work, and I have a specific preference for mindfulness and spirituality. I also assist individuals in their post-addiction work.
I have a unique sensitivity to the Frum community, and am especially aware of the struggles of at-risk teenagers. I have a practice in Springfield NJ & Brooklyn NY, and am available for both evening and weekend hours. Feel free to call if you have any further questions.

Avi Shteingart's Groups

Men's Process

I facilitate a weekly Men's Process Group, focused on helping individuals understand themselves better. Based on Yalom's modality for process groups, I believe that group therapy can help individuals gain a deeper understanding on themselves through the intimate, interpersonal dialogue of the group.

More about this group

Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP)

Having worked in the addiction field for a number of years, I have come to believe that mindfulness can be an incredible tool for individuals to enhance their recovery. It helps them gain a better awareness of themselves and how they are triggered, and in turn, gives them the ability to have more control of their decision making and reactions. The MBRP group is an empirically researched 8 week curriculum, that teaches individuals to use mindfulness most effectively. I have been trained in facilitating this group and have seen it help individuals flourish in their recovery.
