Personal Statement

As an individual or couple's/marital specialist, I help patients learn the ironic concept of 'tolerating intimacy' and in so doing, obtain/enjoy the personal relationship you want and... deserve. Did show for CABLEVISION called 'WHY COUPLES FIGHT/TOLERATING INTIMACY" and I have also recently written several articles: "Body-Mind Strategies For Dealing With Depression and Anxiety". Body—Mind Strategies for Dealing With Anxiety and Depression and "Couple Relationship Problems With A Solution": Couple Relationship Problems With A Solution.

The following is a link to an external article which may be of interest: Science Says Lasting Relationships Come Down To Two Basic Traits

Finally, would like to note LA Times article, "How Not To Say The Wrong Thing" to people struggling with cancer or any other debilitating disease or condition: How Not to Say the Wrong Thing

I have volunteered as a couples facilitator for the New York Disaster Counseling Coalition, Inc. where I worked with couples within the law enforcement community on resiliency building, communication skills, listening and empathy.

My patients find my caring and direct approach refreshing and come away with new partnership skills that enhances "communicating"/intimacy. In lonely, stuck relationships, people often go outward to affairs when they can go inward, risking to be seen and see each other perhaps for the first time. THAT can be very romantic and exciting.

I am both a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst who is conversational and relates in a caring focused manner. I have years of experience working in both inpatient and outpatient hospital clinics and private practice.

I look forward to meeting you. Call my cell 914-403-2926 to arrange appointment.


Client Comments
"Gerry is awesome!!!! I have been going to him for over 6 years - on my own and also in couples sessions with my husband. He has given us so much amazing insight and advice. He is a psychoanalyst, which I appreciate very much, as does my husband, which helps understand why we behave and do the things we do and therefore, break negative behaviors and thinking patterns. I have had so many "ah ha!" moments during my sessions over the years with Gerry! He is an amazing listener - Which you would think would be a necessary trait in the therapists but I've been to other therapists that just do not listen and or give helpful insight as Gerry does and guides you along. He can be tough in his analysis and is very honest which I greatly appreciate. I usually leave my sessions feeling so much "lighter" and more clear. I can honestly say he has gotten me through so many tough times and helped my husband and I work on our marriage issues tremendously! I'm so glad we found Gerry and recommend him highly!!!!!!! He knows his stuff!!!!"
