David Silverman - Couples Therapist New York Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Specializing in Couples, Families and Individual therapy Located in a private office in a secluded neighborhood
I have been practicing for 25 years and have helped many couples and individuals with their personal issues. I rely on sensitivity and knowledge. I specialize in marriage and couple therapy. I also respect each individual and try to help.
Goals and Objectives of Couples Therapy: The major aim of therapy is increasing your knowledge about yourself, your partner and the patterns of interaction between you. Therapy becomes effective as you apply new knowledge to break ineffective patterns and develop better ones.
The key tasks of couples therapy are: •Deescalate patterns of fighting • Increase communication •Create an improving system of relationship awareness •Create coping mechanisms for life problems •Disengage from repeated automatic patterns and cycles •The skills and knowledge necessary to do the above tasks
The approaches I use include: Attachment Therapy, Mindfulness, Body-centered Psychotherapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, Cognitive therapy, Structural therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, Family focused therapy, and Hakomi.
