Welcome!

My name is Dr. Perry Meltzer and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy for children, adolescents, and adults who present with a wide range of challenges and therapy goals.

UPDATE: To ensure patient safety, due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19), all sessions have moved to online video appointments. As an evidence based practitioner, I have provided a variety of telemedicine,  telehealth, and teletherapy services over the years because the research has demonstrated that online therapy is equally (and in some cases even more) effective compared to face-to-face therapy (2009 Study2012 Study2013 Study2014 Study2014 Study2018 Study). We are living in unique and difficult circumstances and everyone deserves access to support. I look forward to continuing to serve my clients, the community, and anyone currently in need of assistance in this modern and effective way. Please call 516-497-0722 or 646-896-1693 with any questions or to schedule an initial video session.

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.

Specializations

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.

My Approach

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.
