New School Psychotherapy Program

  • IMG - NSSR Psychotherapy Program

    The New School Psychotherapy Program (NSPP) is operated by the Clinical Psychology Program at the New School. We offer individual psychotherapy provided by New School Clinical Psychology PhD candidates under the supervision of licensed psychologists. Treatment is provided on an individualized basis and monitored carefully to ensure that clients’ goals are being met.

    All sessions are videotaped in order to ensure that therapy is progressing in a satisfactory fashion. These videotapes are reviewed by the therapists' supervisors. In addition, clients complete brief questionnaires before every session. Clients' responses to these questionnaires will help determine whether any changes are required to the treatment approach.

    Our Clients

    Our clients are adults from the greater New York area. Typical issues that bring people into therapy include relationship problems, difficulty managing stress, life transitions, depression, feeling stuck or conflicted about relationships or work, interpersonal conflicts and tensions, losses, difficulties finding the “right” romantic partner, or just a general sense of not getting what you want out of life.


    Therapy sessions last for about one hour (this includes a few minutes at the beginning of every session to fill out your treatment progress questionnaire). Sessions are usually scheduled once per week.

    You will speak with one of our intake interviewers on the phone, who will answer any questions you may have and ask you a series of questions to help determine if our program is right for you. If you and your interviewer decide to proceed further, we will schedule an in-person consultation during which a more detailed interview will be conducted. This consultation is free of charge. After this appointment, you will either be accepted to the program or be offered a well-informed referral.
