Many of us have struggled with challenges in our pasts. But what we want now is an opportunity to move forward. Gestalt therapy is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the *now*. It also integrates your whole self, giving you an opportunity to truly be seen.

Our Brooklyn therapists are here to talk to you about Gestalt Therapy, and to see if you are a good candidate. We also will help you feel comfortable and supported, no matter what treatment option is best for you. Contact us today at 917-737-9475, or contact us to get started.

What is Gestalt Therapy?

Gestalt Therapy is about learning to address what is happening in the moment. It’s about confronting your feelings, with questions such as “how are you feeling now?” and personal exploration designed to gain a better understanding of yourself, your reactions, your feelings, and your senses.
Through Gestalt, patients are not looked at as a diagnosis. They are examined as a whole – mind, body, emotions – and are best understood both by the therapist and themselves when they are able to identify and share their feelings and experiences that they are having right then and there.
Gestalt is one form of humanistic therapy, which is one of the approaches our therapists offer here at Flourish Psychology.

What Does Gestalt Therapy Treat?

Your Brooklyn Gestalt therapist can use this broad technique to treat a wide range of conditions. It is considered an evidence based, appropriate therapy for issues that include, but are not limited to:



Relationship Issues


Substance Abuse


Low Self-Esteem


Sexual Issues

Gestalt can also be combined with other types of treatment in order to provide better long term outcomes. The way our NYC therapists approach every patient is to get to know each one of you as an individual, and determine which styles and methodologies are most likely to see the greatest results.

Alternatives to Gestalt Therapy

Although the approaches are very different, Gestalt has some similarities to cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as “CBT.” Both are present-focused. Both are very communication oriented, where your therapist tries to identify examples of problematic thought patterns. Both also rely on a strong connection between you and your therapist, which is why we make an effort to ensure each patient feels as comfortable and seen as possible.

That said, the styles are also very different. CBT is more structured, rigid, and involves goal setting. CBT also has different approaches depending on the diagnosis. Gestalt is about experiences and feelings, allowing you to take the conversation where you need to. It also doesn’t necessarily believe in the importance of a diagnosis, instead seeing individuals more as themselves.
Both are great options that we can pursue depending on what we identify at our initial sessions. We have Brooklyn therapists that specialize in both options.
