  • New School Psychotherapy Program

    • At the Safran Center for Psychological Services, PhD Clinical Psychology students provide individual psychotherapy under the supervision of licensed psychologists. Treatment is offered on an individualized basis and monitored carefully to ensure that clients’ goals are being met. 

      All sessions are videotaped in order to ensure that therapy is progressing in a satisfactory fashion, and recordings are reviewed by the therapists' supervisors. In addition, clients complete brief questionnaires before every session; their responses help determine whether any changes to the treatment approach are required.

      Our Clients

      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 they want out of life.


      Therapy sessions last 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. 


      The cost is $20-$50 per session and is based on family size and income. 

      The Next Step

      If you are interested in therapy or in finding out more about the Safran Center, please call us today at 212.229.5700 x2478.

      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 whether our therapy is right for you. If you and your interviewer decide to proceed further, we will schedule a free in-person consultation, during which a more detailed interview will be conducted. After this appointment, you will either be accepted to the program or be offered a well-informed referral.
