Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy is one of the leading post-graduate institutes in New York City, committed to the teaching, practice, and continued development of Gestalt Therapy.

Our practice has been enriched and deepened by the integration of such modern and ancient disciplines as communications and family systems theory, contemporary existentialism, inter-subjectivity theory, self psychology, and Zen Buddhism. This allows for a creative and flexible approach, which enhances the development of each therapist’s creativity and unique personal style.
