  • Can’t recommend Saul, his practice and his workshop enough. He clearly cares deeply about helping couples find success in building their lives together. We left the workshop with a fresh view on ourselves, each other and our relationship, and with tools for making our relationship rewarding and exciting for life. I’m excited for this next journey with my wife, and thankful Saul’s genuine interest in helping us move beyond help and back to each other.

  • My Fiancée and I received the Gottman workshop as a gift ahead of our wedding. It was a fantastic experience and provided really great insights into the dynamics of a relationship and the tools to build healthy habits and methods of communication. We are so much more confident in the road ahead due to this class. Saul was a great workshop leader and we would recommend this class to any couple!

    Andrew Schilling
  • This workshop was great. There is a lot of material to cover and Saul makes sure that all important points are understood, and that each couple has their questions answered during the entire weekend and during each activity. He is a capable speaker that clearly has a passion for his work and it shows. I think any couple has something to gain from this workshop and I can say for certain it has made me more cognizant of my role and communication style in my own relationship. Thank you Saul!

  • The relationship suite has been very responsive, especially compared to other practices. Lori Sardoff has helped me and my partner communicate in ways we didn’t think possible. She is compassionate, professional and easy to talk to.

    Joanne Rieder
  • I would like to share the experience I have had with my therapist Lori Sardoff. It was obvious to me from our first meeting that she possesses a rare combination of expertise, empathy and heart felt concern for her patients. Lori has an intuitive understanding of my emotions and challenges. She has exceptional listening skills and I always feel heard and understood. What sets my therapist apart is her ability to create a safe and non judgemental space where I am comfortable opening up. Lori Sardoff helped me see things in different ways and because of that I was able to work through my own issues.

  • When we recognized that we weren’t able to resolve our issues without professional help, we decided to see a marriage counselor. We needed someone who would hear what we were saying, help us to hear one another and above all be trusted with the intimacies of our marriage. Thanks to her measured non-judgmental approach, sound counseling and abundant kindness , Irina Firstein expertly guided us to a more balanced approach to dealing with our problems while providing a safe environment for us to do so. Irina Firstein is a 10+, we feel confident in recommending her to those seeking couples therapy.

  • Finding the right therapist is EVERYTHING, especially in delicate situations like a marriage. I was so glad that Irina was ours. I've had bad therapists in the past that very negatively influenced my life, and Irina is one of the best in NYC. My life is so much better now because of her. Highly, highly recommend.

  • I am an individual therapist who has referred many couples for couples therapy to Irina. I believe she is amongst the top therapists in NYC. She is very well trained, extremely experienced and she tailors her treatment approach to each client’s needs. My clients have told me that Irina makes them feel comfortable and safe from the get go. She is my “go to” couples therapist!

  • I worked with a therapist from this practice for almost two years and the entire experience was very positive. Took a step back as a personal choice but I've since recommended myTherapyNYC to several friends and colleagues! One thing I enjoyed was the flexibility of sessions—I mostly did them in person as the office is very cozy and inviting but you can also choose virtual sessions over Google Meet and there were days where I chose a regular phone call so I could chat with my therapist while taking a walk. It took me 2-3 months to get off the waistlist and then once I was matched with someone the sessions were weekly per their policy. You can only cancel once per month and late cancels/rescheduling within 48hrs will charge you but otherwise I found it to be easy to reschedule sessions when I needed to. Overall great experience and would highly recommend.

  • Julie is an incredible therapist who really helped me get through some tough times in New York. She is extremely caring and understanding and really knows how to get through to people on understanding their emotions. It's been an incredible experience and one of the best decisions I ever made coming here.

    Ryan G
  • Terrible experience. Therapist recommended we reschedule my intake to another date because I was unable to turn my camera on at that time. I agree and we decided to start fresh the following week as I am usually home on the day and time I chose. A few days later I get an email stating that since I cancelled our appointment I must pay 90 dollars or I will be removed from my therapist’s roster and will be put back on the waiting list. I thought it was ridiculous, so I ignored it thinking it had to be a mistake. My copay is 15 dollars, I wasn’t prepared to pay 90, and I wasn’t even the one who suggested rescheduling. If I would have known about that I wouldn’t have rescheduled and just done the session without my camera. I then received a call where I was repeatedly talked at condescendingly while being cut off. The therapist claimed that this was policy and he was only following policy, but I was never informed of a policy. If I was I was properly informed we would have done the session and none of this would be happening, but I wasn’t. I was made to feel like I was a burden and too much of a workload. It’s ridiculous to uphold secret policies, especially ones that charge someone 6x the amount of the copay that they are expecting. EDIT: Just received a phone call from the director of this place. She started off the call calling me Jean, but quickly switched to calling me my deadname. If you are LGBTQ, or more specifically trans, avoid this place at all costs. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!

  • If I could give Andre 10 stars, I would. My boyfriend and I have been seeing him for over a year and he is absolutely amazing! He is very honest, understanding, empathetic, compassionate, and creates a very safe and trusting place for us to communicate. For two people who are not very open/comfortable sharing their emotions/feelings, our conversations with Andre are effortless - it's as if we're talking to one of our oldest and dearest friends. I think what I appreciate most about Andre is that he actually makes an effort to relate to us by sharing some of his own experiences/what he's learned from them... and he isn't afraid to show us his vulnerability which builds trust with us. I highly recommend him!

    Scarlett Jones
  • Andre must be one of the most intelligent and emotionally intelligent people I have ever met. He changed my view on therapy, basically. Now I can tell anyone that "trust me, you would benefit from seeing a therapist - well, from seeing Andre, specifically". He is incredible. From the first moment we meet him - there is this sense of warmth and trust. We feel safe to open up. Andre knows so much about art, history, film, behavioral therapy, world cultures, and more - all of which he brings into the sessions and relates that knowledge to our situation/feelings. That really helps us process our feelings and understand them better. As another reviewer said, he also shares some of his personal stories, which is what makes him so genuine. On top of that, Andre is extremely emotionally intelligent - he just "gets" it. He doesn't try to preach about what we should do. If you come here looking for such answers, you will be surprised. Instead, he brings out the feelings out of us - the deep stuff from inside to the surface - and helps us understand those feelings. Very importantly, Andre has the best intentions to help couples learn how to understand each other better and support each other. As he says: "How can you really love someone if you don't fully understand them?" Now I understand my significant other much more than before. Andre is an experienced therapist and individual - truly knows his stuff - in therapy as well as in life. He takes the time to listen and understand (like during our first phone call, he spent time to hear my story before even asking me if I'd like to book the first session with him). His sessions are 1,5 hr long compared to 45 minutes elsewhere. Since seeing Andre, our lives have become normal (we were on barely speaking terms before!). Of course it takes the couples' additional effort to make things happen outside of therapy, but if you put into practice what you learn during the sessions with Andre, you will come out better than when you came in. We are so thankful to Andre. My significant other, who previously claimed he did not believe in therapy, now says he must give credit to Andre. In short, do yourselves a favor and see Andre. If you value your relationship/marriage and really need a miracle, don't hesitate. This might be your life-saving decision. As for the cat hair - yes there is a cat sitting silently on the table in the room and doesn't bother anyone. If you hate cats, look elsewhere, otherwise, chill. As for the privacy rules, you sign a paper in the first session which states that whatever you share with Andre is strictly confidential, so no worries there either. Card is accepted as a form of payment - no idea what the reviewer is saying regarding Andre making them pay cash - complete nonsense. Andre is so human (down to earth, humble), genuine, understanding, a good listener, patient, super super super intelligent & emotionally intelligent, and has the couples' best interest at heart. Andre is professional - he takes notes, and is always prepared for our sessions - I can tell because he remembers everything we talked about in the previous sessions. He is God-sent and truly a life saver. Thank you, Andre. Oh yes, and he is funny too - we laugh quite a bit during the sessions - can you imagine. :)

    Sara Howell
  • Andre is wonderful. My wife and I saw him after a terrible fight over a very charged subject. After a few months of working together with Andre a similar issue arose. Taking what we learned about each other and what we needed we were able to take what could have been an argument and turned it into a very positive conversation. He also has beautiful cats. You should go just to meet them.
