Announcement icon During the coronavirus pandemic I am conducting sessions through Facetime, Zoom, and WhatsApp. These apps are now Hippa compliant.
In my 30 years of practice in NYC I've specialized in successfully treating men and the unique concerns that bring them into therapy. These include career insecurity, burnout, transitions; relationship problems; and the entire gamut of addictive behaviors (sex, porn,gambling, substances, etc.). Symptoms most often associated with these life problems include depression, anxiety, avoidance, isolation, and sexual dysfunction. Men often need encouragement by others to convince them to seek treatment because they aren't comfortable exposing their vulnerabilities. If this description sounds like you, or someone you know, please contact me for a free consultation. I can help!
I won't sugarcoat it; therapy is hard work! Through experience, I've learned how to carefully delve beneath typical male-oriented defensive styles by fostering collaboration in identifying traumatic experiences and attachments, eliminating self-sabotaging patterns, and enabling my patients to eventually achieve a more authentic, dynamic, masculine self.
I'm particularly fascinated by working with dreams both individually and in the DreamGroups I lead. Uncovering unconscious wishes and fears illuminated in dreams inevitably deepens and enriches the treatment, offering creative solutions to both internal and external conflicts. My motto is "A dream is a terrible thing to waste!".

Ira Barouch's Groups

Process Group

Group therapy has been shown to provide unique opportunities for personal growth. The complex dynamics that develop in the group help enlighten our understanding of our experiences in the other groups we are a part of; family, social, professional. etc. The sense of safety that is nurtured in the group enables it to become a laboratory for expanding self-awareness, and deepening relationships to others through direct emotional dialogue, risk taking, empathy, and discovery of the authentic self. Many insurance plans are accepted.
