Higher Standard of Therapy in NYC

If you experience anxiety, depression, relationship issues, ADHD, OCD, or other emotional and behavioral difficulties, we're here to help.  Behavioral Health of New York (BHNY) founded by Dr. Mitchell S. Levy, is a private practice of PhD-level psychologists who specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based therapy methods backed by science. Many clients achieve significant progress with CBT in a relatively short period of time. Other clients benefit from interpersonal or relationship-oriented therapy.  

When we work together, we’ll break down your patterns of thinking and behaviors that cause challenges and hold you back from enjoying life. You’ll develop the skills to feel better and create positive change. Most clients find our approach a very refreshing change from their former therapy.

Telehealth Therapy

Teletherapy by video conference allows your sessions to occur in the comfort of your home or office. You can take a break from work and log in for the session, or have the session after work hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often are therapy sessions?

Weekly is recommended to start.  After certain goals are reached, we may recommend dropping down to every other week before ending treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

CBT is different from traditional therapy in that it’s more practical, interactive, and structured, and often yields better results in a shorter period of time. CBT addresses present-day problems versus the past, and teaches tangible skills that can be applied to many different challenges.

How Long Does Therapy Take?

Some people can complete therapy in a few sessions, while others require longer treatment. On average, therapy typically takes about 10 to 20 sessions.  Some cases are longer or shorter than average, depending on the condition, treatment method, and each individual’s goals.

Does BHNY Take Insurance?

We work with many different insurance plans, and we can accept insurance depending on your particular plan’s coverage.  When you contact our office, we’ll research your insurance benefit to determine the details of your plan.  We’ll go over all the details of your coverage with you before your sessions begin.
