I can start explaining a little about myself.  How I like to work.  The last years, I've been working with a mixture of individuals using primarily psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, and CBT techniques.  I like to work with a small number of patients often over a period of time. So no quick fixes here. And if, after this initial session, you decide to move forward, we should aim to meet at this time and this location each and every week. The purpose, or the aim, is to create a time and a space which is entirely yours, week on week.
The more you try and put all your thoughts and emotions into words, the closer you'll come to feeling better, symptom reduction, catharsis, a resolution to internal and external conflicts, finding a solution to whatever is bothering you and any problems in your life. A lot of unnecessary pain and internal conflicts are not necessary and can be resolved.
David Gruskin is a compassionate, nonjudgmental, and warm clinician who believes it is important to have support when facing challenges, transitions, loss, and uncertainty. Because therapy can be scary at times, David helps clients gain a sense of safety where they can freely explore their own purpose and empowerment.

I work with clients who may be struggling with depression or trauma related to their relationships or family. During our initial sessions, we will delve deeply into the issues at hand, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you get your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first month and sustained improvement thereafter.

I often use Psychodynamic/CBT in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With Psychodynamic/CBT, we'll look at how your past/thoughts affect your emotions and experience. During treatment, I'll help you learn how to push back against those thoughts to change your feelings for the better.
