Child and Family Mental Health Centers

Life presents us with all kinds of problems – Death of loved ones; injury or serious illness; divorce; loss of a job; problems with children or other family members; or simply an unexplained inability to function; or at times, we feel emotionally upset without any particular reason. Sometimes, we are able to handle these problems or feelings. However, occasionally a problem or feeling becomes simply overwhelming.

At such times, we may need professional help. For over 40 years, New York Psychotherapy and Counseling Center has offered an evaluation of your problem and appropriate follow-up care, such as:

  • Individual Psychotherapy for Children, Adolescents and Adults
  • Therapy Sessions Involving Family Members and Significant Others
  • Play Therapy
  • Medication Evaluation, Management and Education
