Beginning therapy can feel like a challenging process, so I am happy to help ease the process in any way that I can. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and young adult clients to feel more comfortable accessing and working through their emotional and cognitive processing in hopes of strengthening coping skills and practicing authentic self-reflection. My therapeutic and humanistic approach focuses on encouraging agency, supporting goals, and facilitating healing. I believe that a thoughtful and psychodynamic process of individualized or group art therapy creates a space for safe emotional and creative exploration.

Sometimes we encounter challenges in our lives that seem too large to face alone. It is at these times that we can benefit from talking with a therapist. Psychotherapy can help you face those challenges, work through problems, and grow in the process. I offer individual and couples psychotherapy for emotional problems, life transitions, relationship difficulties, substance use issues, trauma, chronic illness, and issues related to sexuality and sexual health. I also specialize in working with Veterans.

My extensive experience and attuned, empathetic, approach helps guide our conversation, and inquiry to quickly identify and clarify issues that cause stress, vague feelings of unease, work and relational issues. Our first consultation should help you both put in words, and define a strategy that may begin to clarify and solve long standing problems. I have experience working with problems that overlap with high stress work environments, coaching and interpersonal work issues. My 40 year experience as a couple therapist allows me to quickly define the relationship conflict and facilitate the dialogue between the partners.

You're on your way in your career, you're single, you want a relationship and you're frustrated with the difficulties of finding a partner. You find yourself spending more time at work than braving the NYC dating scene or dating apps while wondering what you might be contributing to the problem. Part of you is preoccupied with a previous relationship and another part of you is just sick of the dating life. Beleaguered by online dating burnout, you tell yourself your career is enough! Yet a part of you can't delete all the apps on your phone, can't help wondering. You feel overwhelmed with anxiety when you think about all this.

I am particularly interested in disrupting maladaptive family cycles and patterns and understand that breaking free of these cycles — rooted in everything from trauma and systemic oppression to the demands of navigating the modern world and family dynamics — is both deeply inspiring and also feasible. Bearing witness to this transformative change in my client’s lives is one of my greatest honors.

Are you trying to find a different way to understand yourself; how you relate to others while building compassion for yourself and deepening your connections? Through the lens of liberation-based healing practices, I will assist with a process of validation, reflection, and questioning so that you can gain insight, feel more emotionally connected in your life.

Opening oneself up to the possibility of growth....reaching out when overwhelmed...desiring insight into the struggles that keep us stuck.... Many times these are the very issues that prompt us to think of therapy. Work with a trained professional can create the relationship that opens us up to the potential of our lives and the cul-de-sacs that often entrap us.

I have years of experience working with diverse postulations that survived intimate partner violence, child abuse or sex crimes. I specialize in treating adults with childhood or relational trauma and the impact on their mood, identity, relationships, and ability to fully enjoy life. Life may give you millions of reasons to give up, but I will help you find one to thrive. I believe you already have all you need to recover and move forward positively. You just need to know "how". We can do it.

Hello, my name is Luther L. Turner, Jr., a licensed clinical social worker with over twenty years experience working with adults, couples, adolescents, and children in treatment. It's my belief that psychotherapy is an invaluable tool in enriching one's life. Whether its marital problems, mental health issues , overcoming addictions, emotional conflicts, or individual concerns; psychotherapy is, in my view, the most effective tool in not only discovering the underlining dynamics, but also provide practical solutions, that addressing one's choices in life as one initiates that first step in achieving a more satisfying and rewarding life.

My Model: Celebrating the equal relationship between the client and facilitator, we move with the flow of energy: the client as the 'expert' on self, and the facilitator as the 'expert' on the theories of psychological change. DW Winnicott reminds us of the beauty and function of playing: involving fantasy, creativity and energy flow. We bring the unconscious to the conscious mind with the specific goal of moving toward desired changes, as we nurture the healing process. We'll focus on your habitual behavioral responses. If you don't like these, I'll help you change them. We'll focus on letting go of what doesn't serve you.

Through both my psychoanalytic training and my training as a creative arts therapist, I treat each person as an individual and we come up with a treatment plan together. My patients are often dealing with depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship issues, identity formation, trauma, and attachment issues. My view of therapy is a collaborative process where we work together to help you increase your self-esteem, have a greater understanding of yourself, and be able to have healthy and long-lasting friendships and romantic relationships.

I work with people who have engaged active lives who find themselves troubled, or at an impasse. You may want to move forward and notice inhibitions holding you back. You struggle with procrastination or anxiety. You may have trouble making big decisions or find it difficult to get what you want. Perhaps you question your relationships with others, or you fight with yourself. Maybe you notice, no matter what you do you feel dissatisfied or even depressed. You long to feel free and energized yet you don't know how to get to that sweet spot. Speaking your words, words you may not have said aloud before, takes courage.

I am very fortunate to combine my three loves: people, psychology and dogs. Over the years my dogs have accompanied me to my office and have been of great therapeutic value and pleasure in their interaction with patients of all ages. Therapy is an exciting adventure in which therapist and patient agree to explore the patient's life, dreams, problems, fears, hopes and aspirations. As therapist it is my responsibility to guide: sometimes lead, share and always to jointly explore who the individual is. While everyones' therapy is different, therapy is the opportunity to pull ones' life together and develop the courage to change.

Psychotherapy can be challenging, but it is a rewarding process. Most people come in to discuss the problems in their lives. They often forget about what is going well, and what are their natural talents and abilities. Psychotherapy helps you reclaim yourself. We will augment your natural coping skills to help you develop a new freedom and a new happiness at work and in your relationships...in approaching your life.

Seeking therapy can be overwhelming, and also relieving; it is an act of hope. I believe that the potential for personal growth and change within all of us is enormous, and I value the opportunity to work with clients as we weave between the present and the past to explore the impact each has on the other. I help my clients examine their personal histories and uncover unconscious barriers to achieving goals. I work with clients to uncover the stories that they have told themselves or have been told to them about who they are that keep them stuck.
