Family Therapy

In family therapy, you will work with a therapist to learn new ways to communicate with each other, resolve conflict, and support each other. You will also learn how to set boundaries, manage stress, and cope with difficult emotions.

  • What can therapy help me with?
    Therapy can aid you in modifying problematic patterns that are inhibiting you from leading the full life you desire. It can help you lead a more purposeful, harmonious and balanced life and set you free from negative internalized thoughts and self-damaging and compulsive behaviors. In therapy you will gain insights and awareness about yourself, your relationships and the way you interact with the world around you. It will aid you in understanding and building upon your strengths and developing tools and skills for changing problematic behaviors, compulsions and thoughts.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    UES Psychology is an out-of-network provider, but we provide curtesy insurance claim submissions. To obtain an estimate of your out-of-network coverage for mental health services, you can click here to complete our insurance verification form or you can contact your insurance carrier and ask them the following questions: Does my plan include out-of-network coverage for mental health or behavioral health services? Do I have an annual deductible? If so, how much is it and how much do I have left to meet it? After I meet my deductible, what is the maximum amount my plan will reimbursement for individual therapy service code 90837?
  • What is Courtesy Claim Submission?
    UES Psychology takes the stress out of seeing out of network providers by offering courtesy insurance claim submissions. We have an insurance coordinator who helps you with all your insurance needs. We help our patients understand their out-of-network insurance benefits prior to starting therapy by offering a complimentary estimation of benefits, which you can receive by clicking here to complete our insurance verification form. Then once you start therapy, you pay for your therapy sessions and we file insurance claims on your behalf so you can get reimbursed. We offer this service to all our patients as we want them to be able to focus on therapy and their mental health, not on dealing with the insurance insurance claim submission process.

Family Therapy for Special Needs in Manhattan

Parental Support

Parental Support can be an incredible resource for parents to learn the skills and tools for best supporting their children to develop and thrive. Additionally, parental support is a space where parents can express concerns, receive support and develop appropriate boundaries, self-care routines and skills to help achieve a balance between caring for themselves and their families.

Parental Support for Children with Special Needs

Raising a child with special needs can be challenging. Parental support therapy can help you cope with the stress and anxiety of parenting a child with special needs, as well as help you develop the skills you need to be an effective parent to your child.

In parental support therapy, you will have the space to discuss the specific challenges you face as a parent and you will develop specific plans, tools, skills and coping mechanisms to help you manage these challenges. You will also learn about effective parenting skills, such as communication, problem-solving, and setting limits.

Here are some of the benefits of parental support therapy:

  • Reduced Stress and Anxiety: Parental support therapy can help you reduce the stress and anxiety that you may be feeling as a result of parenting a child with special needs.

  • Improved Coping Skills: Parental support therapy can help you develop coping skills to help you manage the challenges of parenting a child with special needs.

  • Increased Knowledge: Parental support therapy can help you increase your knowledge about special needs and how to best support your child.

  • Improved Communication: Parental support therapy can help you improve your communication with your child, your partner and other professionals involved in your child's care.

  • Improve Relationship with Your Partner: Parenting combined with the additional responsibilities of caring for a child with special needs can stress a couple’s relationship to the point where communication and intimacy break down, which can undermine one’s ability to work as a team to co-parent effectively. In parental support therapy, we work with parents to help them connect as a team, work collaboratively, and create opportunities to better connect and support one another.
