Looking for a therapist in Brooklyn/Manhattan
July 16, 2012 1:39 PM   Subscribe

Do you know a good talk therapist in Brooklyn or Manhattan, or can you help me find one? Would you recommend yours? I'm not sure why I'm finding it so difficult.

I would like to find a therapist, but the Psychology Today database has so many entries for my area that it's useless.

All I know is that I do not want a short-term/CBT-only person, and I think it would be useful to see a male therapist (I am male), though I would still love to hear from you if your therapist is great, regardless of gender. I would be very appreciative of any suggestions, the more specific the better. I would be paying out of pocket. I think part of the difficulty is that I am not looking for a therapist for one specific issue (as far as I know...) so it's hard to narrow down in that way.

Thank you so much. I will also be checking my Mefi Mail.
