Anxious? Stressed? Worried? Sleepless? Stuck? If these words describe the way you are feeling, the good news is that therapy can help. I am a clinical psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at NYU Langone Health and faculty at NYU School of Medicine. My expertise is in treating anxiety and related disorders (PTSD, OCD, insomnia). I have clinical and research experience at hospitals throughout the NYC area and I have completed specialized internships and fellowships within the VA. My patients often report feeling more relaxed, less afraid, having improved relationships, and increased life satisfaction at the end of therapy.
I practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is a short-term, structured approach to therapy. We collaboratively assess the problem, set goals, and accomplish them together. Therapy can teach you helpful skills, which you practice at home. I am trained in both traditional CBT approaches and newer, mindfulness based approaches.
I also have research and clinical expertise in the use of writing-based treatments. Therapeutic writing can help alleviate anxiety, depression, and even health problems. For more information, check out my twitter page where I often tweet about CBT and writing: https://twitter.com/drdavidaustern
