Daniel Minuchin Family Therapist
I am an experienced family therapist. I work with married and unmarried couples, with families, and do individual work with adults. My experience is that when working with children and teenagers around the whole variety of issues that bring them into treatment, it is quicker and more effective to work with the whole family together than to work with the child alone. For children their families are central and shifts in the family impact on children and adolescents in a powerful way that therapists working alone cannot match. I also work with families where issues have arisen between adult parents and children and between adult siblings. I also have found hypnotherapy to be a useful tool particularly in helping people to deal with issues of anxiety and depression.

As a family therapist I am always attentive tho the importance of the significant relationships in our lives. I am attentive to the patterns that develop in families and couples and how those become stuck, and how to help people change them. I also try and pay attention to the positive aspects of people's lives, their strengths and resources and how to enhance those. Often, in difficult circumstances attention becomes over focused on problems and strengths get ignored. Families can create problems but they are also a source of healing.

My office is in midtown Manhattan. I do have some evening hours. I have a sliding scale. For people who are unsure about starting therapy, or wish to meet with me before making a decision, I am happy to set up a free meeting to talk with them.
