Do you worry a lot, feel stressed, or overwhelmed all the time? Do you experience recurring unpleasant thoughts that impact your perception of the world or yourself? It might be exhausting to have a head full of racing ideas, but via therapy, we can try to free up some mental space. As a therapist, I have had the honor of helping patients who have a wide range of issues, such as stress, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I'm passionate about assisting people in overcoming the obstacles preventing them from engaging in more constructive self-talk, having a calmer mind, and living their best life.

Life can be challenging. Learning how to navigate throughout the different stages of your life can sometimes feel stressful, difficult, overwhelming, confusing, depressing, and more. Learning how to live your life to the fullest while also learning how to cope and manage your mental health can also be a challenge. You may even find yourself having difficulties enjoying your life due to the unpredictable nature of this world. From childhood trauma to life transitions, improving self-worth to managing a new diagnosis, therapy is an essential tool needed to help you acknowledge, process, accept, and adapt.

I don't try to use the same type of therapy for everybody because every person is different. First, I figure out what the problem is and only then can I figure out what to do about it. Attorney Martin Kehoe, Esq. says "Dr. Hoorwitz is one of the least pretentious professionals . . .His humility is matched by his integrity and professional competence.... and as the most insightful and helpful psychologist available to families .... and I am confident that families who seek his help will be well served." -----To schedule an office visit on your own without waiting to talk to me, go to: calendly.com/scheduleaaron

I grew up in the Capital Region but moved to the west coast to pursue my graduate education and ended up staying for twenty years. I recently moved back to the area and am excited to be living life at a slower pace. In the process of opening a new office space in downtown Troy where we will be able to offer not only therapy services but integrate other areas of wellness into each person's wellness plan. I am continuing to offer online sessions utilizing a HIPPA compliant video platform. Lastly, I do still offer a 30 minute free consultation to answer any questions and/or determine if you feel we would be a good fit.

There are many times in life when we deal with issues that are difficult to put into words. I have found that a combination of art therapy, play therapy, with more traditional Cognitive Behavioral talk therapy give people the option of approaching issues from a variety of perspectives. I also have a background in mindfulness practice to help you learn to gain insight into your reactions to issues in your life. I work with children, adults and families to help you develop positive solutions in your life.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
