In addition to working with adults, I specialize in play therapy with children and the treatment of adolescents.
It is a privilege to be a therapist because patients entrust you with closely held and often pained parts of themselves, along with parts of themselves they are excited about and proud of. I see our work as the creation of a place where these different parts of the patient's self can come into the room and be acknowledged and recognized. Therapy is also a place where you, as the patient, can use my listening ear to help you withstand pain and anxiety. Please see my website: zanjacobusinsightpsychotherapy.com

I am providing online creative arts therapy and talk therapy sessions to children , adolescents, and adults and will be doing so at sliding scale rates.
Finding a therapist that is the right fit for you is a crucial first step to a successful therapeutic experience. My approach to therapy is client-centered, meaning that I will work collaboratively with you to tune into your struggles, explore new and creative ways to cope, and strengthen your ability to manage your emotional experiences. I believe in using art in conjunction to traditional talk based therapy, as I have seen it provides an alternative way of expressing oneself for children , adolescents, young adults, geriatric clients, and on an inpatient psychiatric unit.

Feeling stuck, unfulfilled or wondering why you keep finding yourself repeating the same behavior expecting different results? Let's foster some curiosity about what lies at the root of your behavioral patterns. What might have worked in the past but no longer brings you the desired outcome? We work on identifying your inner strengths and optimizing their use for empowerment and increased life enjoyment. Tailoring treatment to best respond to individual needs is important to me. I offer traditional talk therapy as well as art therapy. Many clients find the creative process helpful in facilitating self awareness and insight.

“The good life is a process, not a state of being.” -Carl Rogers (1961). My aim in therapy is to empower you and to help you discover what “the good life” means to you. We all need support on our journey through life’s ups and downs. Together we can figure out how to manage the good and bad moments through genuine, empathic, and healing therapy work.

Additionally, being a parent, raising two children , locally, in Brooklyn, having taught public high school and college for over 12 years, formerly, I understand the demands and issues related to adolescents and academic achievement.
Life is filled with obstacles that have to be negotiated on a daily basis in order for us to move forward. I've helped adolescents, adults and couples do this by working through- and in developing coping strategies to use in addressing- many issues, including low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, related mood disorders, addiction, loss, grief, severe mental illness, trauma, family conflict and uncertainty about a direction in life. Through 'straight'- honest- talk, deep reflection, exploration, identification and acknowledgement of the problem, I can help you develop effective ways to 'free up' the oftentimes fixed and toxic self-perceptions that may be holding you back.

I am a child and adolescent therapist who works with young people and their families in a developmentally sensitive manner. Through careful listening and collaborative parent work, we create the possibility for change. Younger children use play as their most authentic means of communication. Talking directly about worries can be overwhelming. Play becomes a rich way for me to communicate with your child . Older children often communicate directly about their concerns, but will play while we talk. Play gives them a feeling of control and familiarity when addressing difficult issues.

Welcome to my practice! I hope you will find the following information useful in sparking your curiosity about therapy and determining if I would be a good fit to work with you or your child . The counseling I provide can be described as psychodynamic, developmental psychotherapy which aims to uncover the truth about who you really are. In short, psychotherapy teaches the client to be honest. "Psychodynamic" refers to the internal motivation behind emotions, thoughts and actions. "Developmental" refers to our drive to grow and develop. Insight is the major curative factor because behaving authentically promotes emotional healing.
