Common questions

You may still have questions about therapy for anxiety.

Anxiety may have had a grip on your life for as long as you can remember. Even if this is true, cognitive behavioral therapy can still help. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been proven to effectively treat anxiety. We know it is not easy to get started, but we can help you get started so you can reduce your suffering. If you are interested in more technical details about anxiety, please continue to read below, but at any point feel free to reach out to us if we can be of help.

Everyone experiences stress from time to time. However, if you find yourself feeling stressed most of the time, you may benefit from individualized care and treatment. Ongoing stress and anxiety can often physically take a toll on us, leading to stomachaches, headaches, or muscle tension. It can interfere with our relationships, sleep, or life responsibilities. If you’re struggling with anxiety, know that you’re not alone, and no level of anxiety is too small to seek help.

Life can get busy, especially amid hectic New York life. It can feel like there’s never enough time to make therapy a consistent part of your routine. However, if you’ve tried keeping it together and are at the end of your rope, allotting 45 minutes in your schedule for therapy with a trusted provider can offer you tools that you can take with you for long-term symptom relief. You may even find value in attending just a few therapy sessions.

How often you schedule therapy depends on a couple factors: your preferences, your therapist’s recommendations, and scheduling and availability. Individual sessions are 45 minutes long. In order to ensure that your therapy meets your goals, you and your therapist will collaborate and check in with one another to determine that your treatment is on track.

The out of pocket cost of therapy at NYBH ranges from $50 – $450. We are happy to find an affordable, manageable plan for your financial capacities. Group therapy may also cost less than individual therapy. If you have out-of-network benefits through your health insurance, we can provide you with an invoice that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

We accept cash and checks, as well credit cards, and will keep one on file in our secure portal to pay for your sessions.

You can start by completing our matching form. Based on preferences you share with us, we’ll offer therapist or coach recommendations to help you match with your perfect fit.
