About My Practice

I see therapy as a joint process in which we work together to help you attain your goals. Even though stressful situations, eating disorders, and relationship issues can derail your life, individual therapy, couples counseling, and support groups can help you find solutions. Whether the concern is self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and/or ADD, psychotherapy can help you and your family to get unstuck.

As a highly trained and experienced solution-focused therapist in midtown Manhattan and New Jersey, my goal is to help you resolve difficult issues and grow into your true potential.  While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying a variety of empirically-based strategies tailored to your needs, I will empower you to change behavior patterns, unconscious blocks, and cognitive distortions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and joyous life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you.

I have a particular sensitivity to the issues of diverse populations including Orthodox Jews and the LGBT community. I am also highly experienced in working with single men & women, couples, children, teens, and older adults.

Please call me for an individual consultation or to join a support group in my New York or New Jersey office. My New York office (212-750-8130 ) is centrally located near Grand Central and Bryant Park (easily accessible from all over Manhattan, the boroughs, as well as New Jersey and Connecticut.) My New Jersey office (732-247-5112) is easily accessible from communities throughout the state, and has abundant, free parking.

I return all phone calls and respond to all inquiries promptly.

Whether you are new to therapy or feel like you have “been everywhere and tried everything,” I can empower you to get unstuck. I’m eager to help you get started.

 Joanne Gerr, L.C.S.W.
