Welcome to my site on BetterHelp ! I am a Licensed Psychologist in New York with over 30 years of experience. I have a very successful private practice which has included online therapy/ counseling and I am very much looking forward to working with you to make your life a happier and more satisfying one, by giving you strategies to attain what you want in life. I make use of an eclectic approach to therapy and tailor it to meet your needs and specific goals. I have much advanced education and training through several graduate programs that I took after I got my PhD. So I can pull techniques and theory from the different forms of therapy that I have training in and tailor it to meet your needs and specific goals. We will work together on your personal goals, making fun and easy changes to help you to create a better life. I work with individuals as well as with couples. I help with many different concerns such as anxiety, especially “panic attacks”, depression, those grieving a loss, relationship problems, improving communication with others, improving self-confidence so you feel better about yourself, maintaining a Positive Attitude and strengthening your motivation. My counseling style would be heavily based in using Cognitive-Behavioral therapy which would address how you are thinking about situations and help you to view alternative ways that may be more productive for you. With using Positive Psychology, we would approach problems in a general way, and be identifying your strengths in order to work in a positive way to achieve your goals. I would be teaching you mindfulness skills to help with any anxiety you might want to lessen, so you can cope better and focus on identifying goals and how to achieve them. If you are interested I can also teach you techniques through Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, which when added to the counseling can make it even more effective. To find out more about me you can Google me under “Dr Judith Rosenblum + reviews” and find several positive reviews from clients on the internet. I am a kind, compassionate and patient person who can help to guide you to resolve problems that you may have. In working with people, we work together as a team, and I take an active interest in working with you and show you respect, encouragement, optimism, and support. You can also look at my website at https://www.drjudylifechangingtechniques.com. Thank you for taking the time to read about me and very much look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Greetings and Welcome, Thank you, in advance, for this esteemed consideration. Choosing a therapist can be as daunting as the inner work itself and one of my initial goals is to always honor the courageous decision to allow someone "in" (which can often be a difficult step to overcome). It takes a certain amount of strength to recognize when a little assistance may be needed to get through life's challenges (recent or long-standing), and I would welcome the opportunity to be a helpful, therapeutic ally. I am a client-focused Counselor with 25+ years of experience in inpatient and outpatient settings. As an accomplished care-setting clinician, engaging communicator and empathetic listener, I strive to create a safe, authentic and collaborative space that supports your current needs and encourages overall well-being. Helpful in that purpose, is respecting the importance of understanding the issues from your perspective utilizing evidence-based modalities that include, but are not limited to motivational interviewing, client-centered/narrative/solution-focused and talk therapies. In partnering with me you can look forward to being heard objectively and valued. Together, let’s endeavor to increase clarity and lessen uncertainty or doubt. You’re not alone. It’s nice to e-meet you!

Hello and welcome! My name is Jeff Gagliardi, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in the areas of anxiety, depression, chronic illness and life coaching. I also have significant experience working with clients dealing with behavioral addiction such as gambling and technology use. I leverage my background in finance to counsel clients about financial issues, which often can negatively impact peoples' mental health. I have my Master's of Social Work and Doctorate of Social Work degrees from Southern Connecticut State University. I have been a clinician for six years after leaving a career in finance, and I’m incredibly grateful that I have the opportunity to help people overcome challenges in their lives. I recently began focusing on my private practice work full-time after leaving an intensive outpatient treatment facility where I worked with clients with a broad range of mental health diagnoses. My therapeutic approach involves using positive psychology, which focuses on developing a person’s strengths to allow them to create a greater sense of well-being. My goal is not just to help people survive life, but to help them thrive. Building a healthy counseling relationship is critical for the therapeutic process to be successful. I recognize that finding a counselor is an incredibly important and personal decision. If for any reason an individual does not connect with my approach, I will assist them with finding a therapist that is a better fit for them. I do everything I can to connect with people I work with and help them to feel comfortable and safe. I regularly ask for feedback on how clients feel counseling is progressing so I can make any adjustments that are necessary to improve the process. In our work together, we will determine the goals you are looking to achieve in therapy and establish a plan to achieve them. Every client is unique, and I tailor counseling interventions to each specific person. Most importantly, I will learn about you and support you while we go through this transformative process together. I am continually seeking out new approaches that can help people develop healthier coping strategies and habits, and I then relay these ideas to my clients. I applaud you for taking this step to improve your life and I hope that I can be a person to help guide you on your journey.

I am licensed in New York with 13 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, addiction, life changes, issues with body image and weight loss, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence. My therapeutic style is fairly laid back and more personable while upholding professional guidelines and practices. My approach often, but not always, includes relating back to childhood roles and family dynamics as a way to help individuals understand how those things sometimes inform how one views themselves and informs choices one makes. At times, I will focus on patterns in a persons life in an effort to find the common denominator. I do not help answer "why" questions....but I do help answer "how" questions. "Why" questions are accusatory but "how" questions are inquisitive. For example, asking yourself, "Why did I do that when I knew it was going to be bad for me?" Only serves to accuse you of doing something wrong. Asking yourself, "How did I manage to convince myself to do that when I knew it was going to be bad for me" is a great way to explore all the things that informed your decision. When we know how we did something, we can then figure out how to do things differently. No matter what, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking this first step to sign up for therapy takes courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the South Floral Park area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed South Floral Park therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in South Floral Park due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in South Floral Park may not take health insurance, some in the state of New York may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session.

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

You can also try a South Floral Park therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a South Floral Park counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A South Floral Park licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in South Floral Park, New York can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
