About

I am a clinical psychologist, licensed in New York and New Jersey with over 15 years of counseling experience. I work with individuals and couples using a variety of theories including schema therapy, emotionally-focused therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. In addition, I work with an acupuncturist, when appropriate, co-treating clients who suffer from physical and/ or emotional pain. Lastly, I also offer help to clients who are looking to get Family and Medical Leave based on temporary Mental Health conditions.
In psychotherapy, we work on recognizing patterns of behavior, thinking and emotions, discovering how these patterns led to undesirable outcomes in life. My main focus is on helping people accept the emotions and thoughts which cannot be controlled and connecting with what is truly important.
My therapy sessions and office are a safe space for everyone - LGBTQ + and POC friendly, and I am a sex positive therapist. I am bilingual ( English and Hebrew ) and can conduct therapy sessions in either language. I offer both in- person and tenemental health sessions to residents of New York and New Jersey.

Smadar Leiserowitz, Psy.D.'s Groups

Men in challenging relationships

In this group, we will address in a safe, non-judgemental and highly supportive environment the diverse range of experiences of men in relationships that are either turbulent and high in conflict or else semi-dead where there is little to no intimacy. One of the major goals of this group is to break the barrier of silence and shame that prevents men from getting the support that they need as they struggle to navigate challenging relationships on their own. Respect for different needs, preferences and perspectives will be a guiding principle of the group. Group sessions last ninety minutes.
