Dr. David Katzenstein, DSW LCSW-R is a Brooklyn-based licensed psychotherapist who treats adults, couples, children, and adolescents. In his practice, he sees individuals with a host of issues including anxiety, depression, abuse/trauma, behavioral addictions, self-esteem, and family and relationship conflict. He has advanced clinical training in a number of evidence-based practices including CBT, ACT, IFS, EMDR, as well as psychodynamic approaches, and is nationally certified in the treatment of PTSD.
Dr. Katzenstein collaborates with each client to develop a highly tailored treatment plan which best suits the needs of the individual. The goal of therapy is for each client to become his or her own therapist; to develop the skills and tools needed so that one doesn't need therapy forever. He firmly believes in both the process and practical components of therapy- that talking about one's challenges in a safe, warm environment is inherently therapeutic, but one also needs practical tools and skills to make real and long-lasting changes.
As a practicing therapist and an Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Dr. Katzenstein understands the importance of receiving empathetic and effective care for you or your child.
