About Dr. Maryann Schaefer
I have had a private psychotherapy practice on Long Island and in NYC for more than twenty years. Through our therapeutic relationship adults, adolescents and children realize their potential as they learn to manage difficult emotions and to minimize the accompanying negative fallout. Individuals and couples who are successful in all objective areas of life, but who are unable to develop meaningful and lasting intimate relationships, are assisted in resolving their challenges. Emotional communications and their accompanying behavioral expressions are explored as they become the bridges to the resolution of familial, social and business challenges.
Reoccurring themes that present themselves across generations are examined with those looking to foster growth and relatedness in their lives. These themes include critical family issues such as functional marital relationships, where issues can be worked through and resolved; pregnancy loss and infertility; maternal-infant bonding; healthy parent-child relationships through objective listening and limit-setting; bullying; life transitions including divorce and bereavement; marital infidelity, which is among the most traumatic of life events; and substance abuse of all kinds .
Have you wondered how you got to where you are today? Have you thought about the impact your feelings have had on your behaviors? It may be time to identify your repetitions and learn how to implement and integrate new patterns of health and well-being into your life. For those who are unable to come into the office, I offer phone sessions.
It all starts with the very first step. Make today the first day of the rest of your life!
