Andrea B Cohen, PSYD is a Psychologist primarily located in New York, NY. Her specialties include Psychology. I work with adults in individual and couples modalities who are struggling with various symptoms/issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, childhood trauma, general inertia.....Many clients may at first be focused on discussing specific symptoms but therapy usually unfolds into an exploration of life history and repeating patterns of behavior which cause feelings of unhappiness and being "stuck". Therapy is a collaboration between therapist and client, the goal being to understand oneself on a much deeper level and the impact that the multitude of messages (verbal and nonverbal) and life experiences have had. The next step is the extremely important one of bringing about positive change and greater peace into one's life. I've been working in this field for 20 years and continue to find my career fascinating, challenging and incredibly rewarding. The people I have met through my practice inspire me and I consider it a privilege when people open up and share their life story with me and let me bear witness to their inner life.
