My name is Howard Rossen, and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist on the Upper West Side in New York City. I offer compassionate care to help enhance your mental health. As a therapist, I can help you work through many issues of concern. 


Are you unhappy in your life? Do you feel overwhelmed and feel that no one understands what you are going through? Perhaps you just feel "stuck." LET ME HELP YOU LEARN TO HELP YOURSELF. I work with both men and women, gay and straight, individuals and couples alike who seek an empathic and non-judgemental practioner. Together we will answer your difficult questions and begin to question those equally difficult answers.


I am a caring clinician who will respect your feelings as we work through the issues that brought you to my office. I am easy to talk to, non-judgemental and have a good sense of humor. As difficult as life can be, we all need to smile just a little bit, don't we?


Whether you are seeking relationship counseling, help with anxiety, depression, a pervasive feeling of discontent, or a psychotherapist in NYC who understands both men’s and women's issues, I am here to help.There are many therapists in the New York area, and it is important that you find the therapist best suited to your needs. I encourage you to learn about what my office has to offer and to reach out by arranging a FREE consultation.

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent"


Eleanor Roosevelt

I have always found this quotation to be empowering as we repeatedly enable others to make us feel bad...to make us feel less than others that we meet along the way. It's time to take our power back by taking responsibility for our feelings and actions as we reject the judgements of others.
