In the Press: Vice roundup on how to handle the discovery of infidelity

I contributed to a roundup discussion on Vice on the best ways to handle discovery of a partner's infidelity. Thanks to freelance writer Anna Goldfarb for her intelligent, non-sensationalized moderation of a difficult topic.

As quoted:

Office open as usual – Please plan ahead for subway and road closures

The office at 49 West 24th is secure, and appointments will be held as usual on Monday September 19th. As emergency operations continue following the explosion that occurred Saturday evening on West 23rd Street, vehicle, subway, and pedestrian traffic is restricted along 23rd Street and nearby portions of Sixth Avenue. The E, F, 1, and 2 trains are currently bypassing the 23rd and 28th St Stations. I would suggest taking the N/R train, which is stopping as usual at 23rd Street. There are no pedestrian restrictions to 24th Street via Fifth Avenue/Broadway near Madison Square Park. Please check for updates at nycnotify.nyc.gov

In The Press: Money Magazine Article on Ways to Find Affordable Psychotherapy

As quoted in Money magazine,

In an urban area, you may be able to find postgraduate training programs in psychoanalysis or cognitive behavioral therapy for experienced psychologists, says Geoffrey Steinberg, a licensed psychologist in New York City. (Google “training clinic” and the specialty you’re looking for.)

Another option: Ask your therapist if your condition might benefit from group therapy led by an experienced psychologist, which can be 50% less expensive than one-on-one sessions. Says Steinberg, “Group is so underrated and can be so valuable.”

Automatic Recurring Billing

In service of convenience and simplicity, my practice's policy on fees has been updated to reflect the transition to a new recurring billing system. Clients are asked to keep a credit card or checking account on file that will be billed on the date of service. This includes all types of payments--both out-of-network fees for professional services and fees associated with in-network services, such as insurance co-payments, co-insurance, and deductibles. These are due each week at the time of service, rather than on a monthly basis, and will be billed automatically via eCheck, American Express, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover.

TherapySafetyNet featured in Frommer’s NYC Free & Dirt Cheap, 5th Edition

While we are currently winding down our operations because our mission has been fulfilled by the passage of the Affordable Care Act, I'm so pleased to see TherapySafetyNet receive this kind of attention in print, and hope that our presence in Frommer's will help uninsured New Yorkers find affordable care--whether by way of TherapySafetyNet through the end of 2013, or the New York State of Health thereafter.
