The New School Psychotherapy Program (NSPP) is operated by the Clinical Psychology Program at the New School. We offer individual psychotherapy, provided by New School Clinical Psychology Ph.D. candidates under the supervision of licensed psychologists. Treatment is provided on an individualized basis and monitored carefully to ensure that clients’ goals are being met. All sessions are videotaped in order to assure that therapy is progressing in a satisfactory fashion.
These videotapes are reviewed by your therapist's supervisor. In addition, clients complete brief questionnaires prior to every session. Your responses to these questionnaires will help determine whether any changes are required to the treatment approach.
Our clients are adults from the greater New York area. Typical issues that bring people into therapy include relationship problems, difficulty managing stress, life transitions, depression, feeling stuck or conflicted about relationships or work, interpersonal conflicts and tensions, losses, difficulties finding the “right” romantic partner, or just a general sense of not getting what you want out of life.
Our Clinical Supervisors
Our supervisors include faculty members at the New School, as well as distinguished members of the community.
Therapy sessions last for about one hour (this includes a few minutes at the beginning of every session to fill out your treatment progress questionnaire). Sessions are usually scheduled once per week.
Our therapists practice an integrative form of psychotherapy that incorporates both cognitive behavioral and relational techniques.
The cost is $20.00 per session.
The Next Step
If you are interested in therapy or finding out more about our program, call us today at 212.229.5700 x 2478. You will speak with one of our intake interviewers on the phone, who will answer any questions you may have, and ask you a series of questions to help determine if our program is right for you. If you and your interviewer decide to proceed further, we will schedule an in-person consultation during which a more detailed interview will be conducted. This consultation is free of charge. After this appointment you will either be accepted to the program or offered a well-informed referral.
