About Me

Hi! I am Aryeh (pronounced AR-yay.) I am a therapist licensed in New York and Texas. I help people understand and cope with a variety of mild, moderate or severe life circumstances and/or emotional, behavioral or cognitive concerns. I specialize in trauma/PTSD and have extensive training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I have also trained in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), narrative therapy and EFT (Emotionally-Focused Therapy). Additionally, I treat anxiety, stress, grief, low self esteem, personality disorders and building effective boundaries with family/relationships.

People have the drive to be emotionally healthy with themselves and their loved ones. Therapy can often help achieve these goals. My counseling style is warm and interactive, I believe it is important to treat anyone with respect and dignity, to empower them and instill confidence in a compassionate manner. No two problems are ever exactly the same, so I make it my personal objective to listen very carefully to each person and in a very open and non-judgmental way. I always do my best to understand what each situation feels like when looking out through their eyes. I believe in being client-centered and supporting client’s where they are at (with a pinch of humor thrown in). It is important for me to include the client in the treatment planning process and help monitoring success.

It takes courage and bravery to take that first step towards change, if you are ready to take that first step I am happy to help guide, support and encourage along the way. I look forward to working with you and helping you create a life full of happiness.

I joined Betterhelp in May to help with some anxiety. The first counselor I was paired with was disastrous, and I nearly left the service until I was given the option of pairing with another counselor. Aryeh's profile resonated with me, so I reached out, and let him know about the previous experience, and that I was willing to give Betterhelp a second chance. His response was prompt, and he outlined what his commitment to his clients is. He has helped me address a long standing grief issue, checks in with me via the messaging platform, and we have a standing weekly appointment. He is kind, compassionate, and practical. I am grateful beyond words, and highly, highly recommend Aryeh.

I would literally recommend Aryeh to everyone I know. He has helped me so much and has been so patient with me. He is the best hands down.

Aryeh is a wonderful patient listener who once he has listened, offers sound, practical and logical advice. I highly recommend him!!

Written by I.V. on May 11, 2020 after therapy with Aryeh for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Aryeh is a great counselor, he genuinely cares.
I had changed my counselor twice, and wasn’t too satisfied, but I stuck with Aryeh after speaking to him.

He is helpful, and initiates check ups through messaging couple of times a week- which I think is great, that he shows he is approachable.

I would definitely recommend Aryeh for anyone who is looking for a good listener, and helps you navigate through the process!

He's an excellent counselor and is making me healthier every day!

Written by C.H. on May 06, 2020 after therapy with Aryeh for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

I was skeptical about online counseling when I joined betterhelp, but was put at ease by Aryeh's kindness and patience. He took the time to read through all of my lengthy venting and was thoughtful and concise in his responses, giving me tools to look inward and move forward. I'm so grateful for Aryeh giving me the space to explore my feelings without judgement and the tools to start becoming a healthier person.

Written by D.I. on Mar 02, 2020 after therapy with Aryeh for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, anger management, and career difficulties

Aryeh is great. Smart, attentive, engaging, and helpful. Highly recommend.

Written by C.R. on Jan 27, 2020 after therapy with Aryeh for 4 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

Aryeh is a great listener and sets up goals for you to help out with your self-worth/esteem. I found it important to have the right therapist who is trained in a particular strength such as dealing with emotional trauma. I feel he helped me enough to fly solo for a bit and see where that takes me but he assured me that he would be on this site for me if I faulter.

Aryeh, for the short time I’ve been speaking with him, has been a wonderful counselor. Very understanding and compassionate-easy to talk to. He is kind and makes the counseling very comfortable.

Dr. Minkin is extremely polite and patient. He is there for you. Despite obstacles on the way to clear and efficient and prompt communication, his desire to help a patient overrides all negativity.

Written by S.A. on Sep 17, 2019 after therapy with Aryeh for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

He’s fantastic. Aryeh is empathic and kind. Definitely someone comfortable to talk to. Aryeh changed my opinion of counseling, and I am glad to have met him. His compassion and humbleness are some of his beat qualities which I think make him and a great grief counselor.

Written by A.N. on Sep 11, 2019 after therapy with Aryeh for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Aryeh is always honest. He really is the most supportive counselor to me and over all I always feel like he’s listening. He tries to help me achieve my personal health goals in the most effective and healthy way possible. I really am happy with our sessions and would recommend him to anyone going through a confusing period of their life.

Aryeh is a very kind and generous counselor - the most enthusiastic counselor I found on here. He's definitely on your side and that is a great help to anyone who is trying to sort things out. Thank you!

Written by S.E. on Jun 05, 2019 after therapy with Aryeh for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and adhd

I am so happy that I found a counselor who listens to me and replies with real analysis instead of “you know the answer.” I really appreciate his patience in reading my endless emails and giving me his opinions. It seems like most of my problems are resolved. It is a pleasure to work with him and I would like to work with him in the future whenever I need therapy. Thank you for your support, Aryeh.

Aryeh was very responsive and compassionate with regards to my situations. He took the time to listen and provide meaningful and actionable feedback. I would highly recommend him to others.

Written by L.I. on Apr 18, 2019 after therapy with Aryeh for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

I love having the time with Aryeh. He makes me feel comfortable to talk, he gives me confidence to move forward and challenges me to get to the next level. It's very empowering to have an open conversation with someone that helps you rise to become the best you.

Written by L.J. on Mar 29, 2019 after therapy with Aryeh for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, self esteem, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

He is hands-down the best counselor I’ve ever had. He allows time to talk and work through feelings and he pushes you to confront what’s bothering you so that you continue to improve. He is no-nonsense when it comes to making sure your mental health improves. I can’t recommend him strongly enough.
