Individual psychotherapy is a conversation between you and a professional counselor that provides relief and insight into your moods, feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and general life situation. I offer a safe and confidential setting to discuss your thoughts and feelings and work with you to deepen your understanding of yourself, to release old patterns and learn new coping and communication skills, with the goal of improving the quality of your life.
Couples psychotherapy is a conversation between the two of you and a counselor who understands the dynamics of communication and managing relationships during times of stress and/or change. As stated above, I offer a safe and confidential setting to assess and explore your individual feelings, perceptions, and values so we can communicate better and express our needs with the goals of finding mutual support and enhanced intimacy.
Group psychotherapy is a conversation that involves a facilitator and a small group that explores the perceptions and feelings that come up in social interactions. Some goals of group therapy include increased self-awareness and insight, mutual support, and more rewarding relationships. I always foster a group environment of warmth and growth.
About Jesse Hendrich
PSYCHOTHERAPIST IN NEW YORK
I am a licensed clinical social worker with many years experience providing individual, couples, and group psychotherapy. My work is insight-oriented, which means looking at underlying thoughts and feelings that might be working on an unconscious level. My approach draws from many sources, including: Psychoanalysis, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Erickson's Stages-of-Life, Object-Relations Theory, Attachment Theory, Existential Psychology, Mindfulness, as well as many Western and Eastern religious and philosophical traditions. The approach for each person is tailored to their individual needs and ways of learning. I am devoted to providing a safe and warm environment for an exploration of one's past and present circumstances to promote more self-awareness, relief from stress and anxiety, better relationships, greater life satisfaction, and improved overall health.
My office is in midtown Manhattan, on East 41st Street between 5th and Madison Avenues, near the subway stations of Bryant Park and Grand Central Station.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO I TAKE INSURANCE?While I am not currently registered with any specific health insurance company, you may still be entitled to substantial fee reimbursement. If your health insurance company has an "out of network" benefit, I can provide you with a receipt with all of the information they need for processing your claim. I can explain this in more detail when we meet for our first consultation, or you can call your health insurance company to learn more about it. This receipt also allows for reimbursement from flexible spending accounts (FSA's).
IS EVERYTHING I SAY REALLY CONFIDENTIAL?Yes, it is. The only exceptions are: reports of child abuse, intention to harm one's self, intention to harm someone else, if you want notes released in a court proceeding, and if you ask for a receipt with times and dates for services to be submitted to your insurance.
