I am an LCSW NY State Licensed psychotherapist and a graduate of The NYU Silver School of Social Work. I am the current President of The New York Institute For Gestalt Therapy.
I work in private practice in New York City. Previously, I served as a staff therapist at The Blanton Peale Institute and Counseling Center in New York City. At Blanton Peale, I had the opportunity to work with a broad spectrum of people and issues. I carry this experience into my ongoing work as a therapist.
My professional memberships include being an full member of The New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy (NYIGT); a member of The Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy, An International Community (AAGT); and a member of The National Association of Social Workers (NASW).
I volunteer as a supervising therapist at Identity House, a non-profit peer counseling organization serving the needs of the LGBTQ people. I have a long history with Identity House, having worked as a peer counselor, peer group co-facilitator, workshop leader and peer group trainer prior to returning as a supervising therapist.
I have created and presented several evolving formats of a technology workshop on cellphones and relationship entitled, "You, Me and Our Cellphones": In 2016, at The New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy; In 2015, at The Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy annual conference; And, in 2014, as part of The Gestalt Center’s 2014 curriculum. I have several technology themed gestalt therapy projects in development, which focus on the ways technology is influencing our lives.
I work in individual, couple and interactive group therapy modalities. My work is relational, and supportive. In keeping with my Gestalt Therapy roots, I tend to view people as well, rather than “ill”.
I work with people from many different walks of life with all kinds of issues.
I support all people with whom I work toward building a life that works uniquely for them.
“Adam’s approach to his work combines two important elements: passion and professionalism. The first keeps him always growing, while the second makes you grow -imperceptibly but with awareness. Working with him is a journey in self-exploration. Meeting Adam changed my life.”
