“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.”

Adam J. Weitz, LCSW Psychotherapy
I am passionate about Gestalt Therapy. In addition to being a Gestalt Therapy trainer, he offers gestalt-based workshops that explore current social conditions. These have included, “You, Me and Our Cellphones”; “Looming Figures on Shaky Ground: This Era’s Authoritarianism”; and “Looking Up and Looking Down: Ranking, an Activity at the Contact Boundary”. I have trained or presented at The Fifth Avenue Counseling Center; The New York State Society of Clinical social Workers; Identity House; The Gestalt Center, The International Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy; and The New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy.
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.
I am a Gestalt psychotherapist and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in New York City. I am a graduate of The NYU Silver School of Social Work and a recent President of The New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy.
Before starting my private practice, I was a staff therapist at The Blanton Peale Institute and Counseling Center in New York City, where 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.
I am a Full member of The New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy (NYIGT); a member of The International Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy, (IAAGT); a member of The National Association of Social Workers (NASW); and a member of Identity House, a volunteer, non-profit peer counseling organization serving the needs of LGBTQ people. I am currently a supervising therapist at Identity House.
