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.
Everyone is different, no one approach fits all. How we proceed is determined by you and your needs. Your family, culture, sexual orientation and ethnicity are all important. I use an integrative approach which combines insight oriented, mindfulness, cognitive, behavioral and humanistic approaches.
I train and supervise psychologists at area hospitals. Because of this I am sensitive to ethical concerns: honesty, integrity and practicality. I strive to create a very kind and safe atmosphere where personal exploration is possible. Psychotherapy should be collaborative. I am vocal and active and give my clients ongoing feedback, inquiry and support.

Wayne A Ayers's Groups

Adult Interpersonal Psychotherapy Group

I run a adult psychotherapy group for adults ages roughly 30-60. The intent of the group will be maturational and supportive, with an emphasis on how member's personality and interpersonal style influence their life, love and and career issues. Through frank, constructive feedback members will learn how to better understand and appreciate their own motives and emotions and those of others. They will have the opportunity to try out new roles and new behaviors in a safe and compassionate space. The group currently meets virtually on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 7:30. When in person we will meet in Park Slope.
