My name is Dr. Perry Meltzer and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with offices in Manhasset, NY and New York City. I provide individual, couples, family, and group therapy for children, adolescents, and adults who present with a wide range of challenges and therapy goals.
Whether you are looking to enhance coping skills, live a healthier lifestyle, improve relationships, or receive guidance and support; my mission is to provide the help you need to build the life you want.
I specialize in providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for impulsive behaviors, problems with anger, chaotic relationships, and people who struggle to cope effectively with intense emotions; Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT) for depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, OCD, and other difficulties; Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy (TLDP) for chronic interpersonal problems; Mindfulness-based psychotherapies for chronic stress, emotional and physical pain, excessive worry, inattention, and mood-dependent behavior; and other psychological services.
I’m an intensively trained DBT therapist and have served as an individual and group therapist in two comprehensive DBT programs. My experience has allowed me to develop my own private practice approach to DBT that includes individual DBT sessions and individual and family skills training.
I place an emphasis on the strength of the therapeutic relationship and my first priority is to build the trust necessary for growth. My goal is to create an environment that is validating, non-judgmental, and genuine, and at the same time, encourages effective change. I strive to facilitate an experience that helps people reduce suffering, develop the skills they need, and create a sense of meaning in their lives.
