The Gottman Method has been proven to help change a plethora of the lives of couples , for the better! Narrative Therapy is all about what you have to say, as your story is your truth and no one can invalidate your truth.
Life has its ups and downs. Through it all, we are told to persevere and let nothing deter you from stopping until you "make it". What we aren't told is that we CAN be helped along the way. What we aren't told is that we DON'T have to face that journey, that climb, alone. What we aren't told is that IT IS ok to confide in others and have someone to have your back during the hard times life tends to throw at you. If you are looking for that person, look no further: I can provide you that supporting role! Just hearing validation like, "I understand" or "I totally get where you're coming from" can make all the difference in the world!

I have worked with hundreds of clients in a variety of settings, and over the last 15 years have enjoyed supporting individuals, families, and couples .
We all reach points in our lives where we experience increased stress and vulnerability. Regardless of our age, circumstances, or experience, we can feel hopeless and disconnected from the world. This can lead to a number of issues including substance abuse, depression, anxiety, impulsivity and poor decision making, unsafe behaviors, and even suicidal thinking and behavior. We all deserve to feel good about ourselves, be connected to the people who care about us, have healthy relationships, and be pursuing meaningful life goals, and with the proper support we're all capable of doing so.

The initial couples session allows the work of repair to begin.
I specialize in marital and relationship counseling. If you are tired of having the same fight, feel disconnected to your partner , or would like to find ways to enhance your relationship, you will benefit from my approach. I help couples make repair by supporting each person to be more authentic in their relationships. I have a unique style that is supportive in a way that is also direct and challenging. Couples learn how to move through difficult issues and expand their comfort zones. Through this process, couples achieve greater closeness with each other while maintaining their own identity.

I have 30 years experience working with individuals and couples with diverse issues including but not limited to communication issues, intimacy, depression, anxiety PTSD, trauma, eating disorders, OCD, hair and skin picking (BFRB's), and bi-polar disorders.
As an experienced clinician I realize what it takes to reach out and decide it is time to seek assistance for a personal or family matter. Entering into counseling provides you an opportunity to overcome negative patterns of behavior and thinking, to foster a positive self-image, and to build fulfilling relationships with co-workers, partners, friends and family. To achieve your goals I utilize an individual approach that builds upon the strengths you already have and assist you to learn new ones. This is a collaborative process which is based on an understanding of your history and patterns, your strengths and personal goals.

Problems include: (1)adults who are anxious or depressed,(2) couples having difficulties in a relationship, (3)problems in children and teens, (4) improvement in parenting skills, (5)anger management, and (6)adults and children with attention deficit disorder who are willing to train their brains to focus by utilizing an aggressive cognitive therapy approach.
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

In my first career- I was a professional actor/Comedian. I did standup, Improv, Sketch, funny TV commercials and writing/directing all things comedy. As a Psychotherapist and Couples Counselor, I've found that humor can be a powerful healing tool and that when you mix scientific-based theories and techniques together with lots of experience, expert training and creativity and comedy --- amazing things happen..

I have many tools available to us, including traditional therapy, EMDR, Advanced Integrated Therapy, and PACT for couples .
Each of us holds within ourselves tremendous potential and an innate knowing of just what we need. I look at many symptoms as a creative, adaptive response to our environment that should be respected as such. Through positive connection with others, we can learn new ways of relating to our bodies, our spirits, and our world. I use a collaborative approach to treatment, with the belief that without your perspective and input, therapy will not be nearly as beneficial.

What type of Schenectady mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Schenectady?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
