Designed to help

Everything I do is designed to help you move beyond the limitations of your old ways of looking at things.

It’s hard to do it alone

It’s hard to see ourselves with clarity even when we know that what we’re thinking, feeling and doing aren’t good for us.

 

I’m Dr. Sean Condon, a clinical psychologist practicing in New York City.  My job is to help you see your problems in a new light, and to use this perspective to identify meaningful, lasting solutions that were difficult to see on your own.

Psychological difficulties can feel uniquely challenging, because it’s hard to see ourselves with clarity even when we know that what we’re thinking, feeling and doing aren’t good for us.  And if we can’t see what the problem is, how can we solve it?  That’s what I’m here for.  Together, we can make sense of your struggles, and develop these insights into new ways to move forward in your life.

    If you’ve never met with a therapist before, you might feel quite in the dark as to what the first appointment would be like.  Will it be like meeting with a medical doctor?  If not, what’s the etiquette?  And when it comes to discussing your issues, where are you supposed to start? Alternatively, if you’ve...

    Starting therapy means seeking help, and that isn’t easy for most of us.  And therapy often raises more troubling concerns than seeking other forms of help, such as going to a lawyer, accountant or medical doctor.  After all, we usually have a pretty good idea of why we might need a lawyer, for instance, but...
