About Cheryl Gerson

I am a couples counselor, an individual psychotherapist, and a group therapy leader. In private practice in New York City for over 25 years, I’m licensed in Clinical Social Work, a Board Certified Diplomate  and have an Institute certificate in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.  

I’m also a human being: married for over 50 years, both a mother and a stepmother, and a happy grandmother. 

I think you’ll agree that there are times when life looks pretty bleak. You’ve hit a wall and there seems to be no way around it. Maybe your relationship is all a big mistake . Or you find yourself in a bad situation you’ve been in before, time and again. Maybe you should just give up.

Should you ?

This is the choice point which brings normal people into therapy. Your old solutions aren’t working on your present problems. You can give up, cash in, move on to the next, and hope a change of venue will resolve your struggle. Or you can dig in, re-invest, and take the risk of challenging some old beliefs or behaviors.

The latest science does tell us that our brains can change. What a concept!

Throughout my experience as a therapist, I’ve been able to help "hopeless" couples re-discover each other. I’ve helped "stuck" people free themselves. I’ve encouraged parents to find the most useful ways of dealing with their kids. I’ve sat with grief for as long as necessary, until the person’s own life-force is rekindled.

If any of these things ring true to you, I’d be very glad to hear from you. See my website for more details.
