  • Individual counseling, relationship therapy and sex therapy
    An important question! You don't KNOW therapy will work, because no one can read the future! (You'll learn this in session, but this kind of statement might be "fortune telling", a kind of cognitive distortion.) To make sure we're making progress, your therapist uses a scoring system that helps you measure how things are going in your life as well as how each session is going. We have steadily been implementing this into our sessions over the last 11 years, and our experience backs up what the data already shows - the more immediate feedback and the more engagement a client has in sessions, the better the outcome.

    By using this ratings system, we can monitor your progress in therapy, as well as how you are more able to cope with things between your therapy sessions. This also allows us to make sure we are providing the best training and supervision to counselors in NYC. Regardless of whether you work with a graduate student, post-graduate, or licensed therapist, we want to make sure our approach is the right one for you, and that you're not just FEELING better, but making actual progress with some sort of end in sight! Quite a bit different than you might have experienced with therapists before.

    We're not here to give you advice or to hug you better or to pathologize you and keep you entrenched in a mental health system. We are here to help you learn tangible skills to implement in your own life, and we want to use interventions and techniques that have shown time and time again to be effective.

    Forget online reviews and what you have seen about therapy on tv. If you want a relatively brief, modern, effective approach to counseling, book your intake session now.

  • The mission of the Authentic Self Counseling Group is to help you to discover your true self and take the risk to be you.

    What is the True Self?

    The Authentic Self Counseling Group views the true self as the essence of who you are. From birth, we individually possess talents, abilities, desires, and needs that are unique to us all. When we are able to know our true self and develop the person that we are meant to be, we are able to obtain happiness and satisfaction from our lives. For each person, this true self is different; but, for every person, fully living one’s authentic life is essential to a happy life.

    Discovering the True Self

    The discovery of one’s true self is a transformative process. As one obtains a deeper understanding of who they are what they want out of life, the life one lives will slowly, but harmoniously, change and align with the authenticity of a true self. For each person, this path towards self-discovery will be unique in the time it takes and the true self that will become known. Through diligent effort and vulnerability, rest assured that one’s true self can and will be discovered.

    How do I know if I’m living my true self?

    For many people, it can be unclear if they are living out their true self or an inauthentic aspect of self. So many times throughout life we are told we should be something or feel something that may not necessarily be in alignment with who are truly are at the depth of our self. For some people, the knowledge of not living one’s true self exists at the conscious level; these people either know or feel a sense of inauthenticity but may feel stuck or unable to find a new way of being. For others, however, the experience of not living one’s true self can express itself indirectly or unconsciously. At the Authentic Self Counseling Group, symptoms of mental health distress are viewed as signals that a person is not in alignment with their true self. Such symptoms could include:

    At the Authentic Self Counseling Group, we move beyond mental health labels, disorders, and pathology. Once an individual is able to take the risk to be themselves and live a life of authenticity, these symptoms will dissipate. You are not depressed, you are not anxious, you are not disordered. What you feel, though deeply distressing, is only a signal that you are not living a life you want and you are not yet known. You are so much more than a diagnosis. You are a myriad of possibilities which are not yet known and lived.

  • Clinical Psychologist
  • I am a licensed psychologist with extensive training and experience in the treatment of anxiety disorders, specifically OCD and related disorders.

    I apply complementary therapy approaches and techniques to modify longstanding patterns of behavior and thought that may be causing you emotional distress and holding you back from enjoying a richer and more fulfilling life.

    I can help you identify and overcome emotional blocks and challenging obstacles that may be getting in the way of your hopes and dreams.

    I use an individualized approach to therapy that is tailored to each person's unique life circumstances and personality traits.

    I can teach you effective coping strategies and explore with you the psychological, biological and environmental origins of the issues that are prompting you to seek help.

  • Why do many gay, lesbian or bi people work with an LGBT counseling professional when it is time to get help? Regrettably, not all therapists work comfortably with gay clients. And they may not be familiar with the details of life for gay people. As a result, it may be easier to talk to an LGBT counselor.

    Much the same as other people, LGBT people experience anxiety, depression or relationship problems. And LGBT people can confront special life stressors. Family, dating, and relationships. Sexuality. Drug and alcohol use. And work/life balance. Any of these can be particular challenges for gay people. As a result, LGBT people more often stressed with issues of anxiety, loneliness or social isolation.

    Most of all, LGBT clients know I understand and support them.
    I work with all kinds of people. Gay, lesbian or bi people make up more than half of my clients. I counsel both individuals and couples. And I do premarital counseling.

  • Mending Minds. Healing Hearts. Reigniting Relationships.
  • I have been a psychologist for over 20 years with an expertise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I’m passionate about not only helping my clients recover from what ails them but also to help them improve their lives and achieve their dreams and goals.

    Utilizing state-of-the-art Cognitive Behavioral Therapy — the therapy of choice for most individual issues such as anxiety, depression, and stress — I am able to help you get where you want to be. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (or CBT) is an evidence-based therapy that can help you achieve your goals and improve your well-being by addressing your thoughts, behaviors, emotions, and environment.

    You don’t have to do all of the talking either. The therapy is interactive and I will not only ask probing questions, but also teach helpful skills, monitor your progress, and even give work to do outside of session. We take this journey of change together.

    Utilizing the tenets from The Gottman Method, I seek to repair and strengthen your relationship utilizing a thorough assessment of the couple relationship and research-based interventions. The goals are to disarm verbal conflict; remove barriers to empathy and understanding; and increase intimacy, respect, and affection. Couples learn to replace negative conflict patterns with positive interactions and to repair past hurts. Interventions designed to increase closeness and intimacy are used to improve friendship, deepen emotional connection, and create changes that enhance the couple's shared goals.

  • My work has been primarily with individuals who have been marginalized or felt marginalized due to personal trauma history, sexual identity, financial disparity, drug use and addiction, and/or unsatisfying relationships—whether personal or professional.

  • Personal growth is most effective with structure and consistency. I do my best to work with clients when we meet each week. Traditionally, the client attends one 50 minute session. You want to keep the momentum going as you develop healthy outlooks and behaviors which in turn organically create new neural pathways in the brain. To maintain consistency, I provide weekly phone, Facetime, and Skype counseling sessions.Joey Sarcoz, MA, LMFTWest Hollywood counseling
