What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a form of talk therapy that teaches you how to cope with your symptoms. 

When our clients visit Wellness Road Psychology, they have a safe space to express themselves without fear of judgment. With the help of a trained mental health professional, clients attending therapy receive help working through emotional difficulties. Your provider guides you to a better understanding of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Successful psychotherapy requires active participation from clinicians and clients. Trusting your provider and feeling safe is essential to working together effectively. 

How can psychotherapy help me?

Psychotherapy can help with a wide variety of challenges. The following are situations where a person may seek this type of therapy: 

Counseling for depression

Everyone feels sad from time to time. Sadness is a normal reaction to life setbacks. However, it's wise to seek the help of a mental health professional if you experience persistent sadness. Dr. Glickman can help you gain insight and change your thoughts and emotions so you feel better.


Therapy for bullying can help you gain the skills and confidence to handle the distress of being bullied or harassed. You can be bullied at any time, and any age, no matter who you are. It can happen at work, at school, and even at home. 

Whether bullying is face-to-face or through online platforms, it can have a devastating impact on your life and how you feel about yourself. Therapy can help you work through the pain and develop skills to stand up for yourself.

Body image therapy

The media often bombards us with what it defines as an ideal body. The truth is, the average person doesn't look like the models in fashion magazines. This reality can cause individuals to feel bad about themselves and struggle with negative body image. It can lead to poor self-esteem and eating disorders.

Counseling can help you develop a healthy body image and learn to appreciate and like your body again.

Abuse counseling

Abuse can cause short and long-term effects that significantly impair your quality of life. Nightmares, flashbacks, and paralyzing feelings of fear are just a few of the lingering impacts of abuse. 

Therapy can help you address distressing emotions and memories and move from being a victim to a survivor. Dr. Glickman helps clients who have experienced abuse gain the courage and strength to move through the healing process. 

If you’re struggling with distressing life events or feelings, we can help. To learn more, contact our office. We have locations in Dobbs Ferry and New York City and offer in-person, online, and phone therapy sessions.
