Let’s Meet Dr. Sussman.

Call him Steve if you wish, but Dr. Steven Sussman has been a Doctor of Psychology for nearly 40 years.  To say that he has met just about any and all challenges over these last four decades would be an enormous understatement.  With that experience comes a type of compassion that makes him feel like your children are an extension of his family.

You may not know it, but the American Psychological Association (APA) is the gold standard of doctoral and internship programs. Both are where Dr. Sussman earned his Ph.D in clinical psychology.  He has not only succeeded in private practice, but has also been a consultant for many and varied child care agencies.

What does Dr. Steven Sussman want you to know BEFORE you pick up the phone to arrange a visit at his Mountainside NJ or Staten Island office?  That answer is found by visiting www.sussmankids.com on the web.  Read all about it…he may be just the godsend that you have been looking for.  Please call (908) 217-8106.

Why is Group Therapy Preferable?

We do things in groups.  Our kids attend school with others.  They participate in activities such as sports with like-minded individuals.  As adults, we generally go to work in an office with other people.  Life happens, generally in groups.  Why shouldn’t child therapy do the same thing?  The answer seems apparent.

Here are a few reasons why your child should be in a group rather than one-on-one –

1.  It focuses on the here and now and not individual history which could get in the way.
2.  Sharing equals meaningful exchanges with peers…the real world.
3.  It is more relaxing for everyone taking the pressure off of the individual.

I am Dr. Steven Sussman.  I believe in group therapy for kids and I believe that you will see my vision.  We have group therapy sessions in Mountainside NJ and Staten Island NY.  I invite you to visit my website at www.sussmankids.com then give me a call to arrange a consultation at one of my offices.  One phone number will reach me (908) 217-8106.

So…How were the Holiday Gatherings?

Everyone tells their own story.  Sometimes it is a joyous reunion of friends and relatives that are not seen at any other time.  In other cases, you remember why you have NOT seen them for a year!  Whichever category you may fit into, now that the holiday season is over, how did everyone get along?

The point is this…relatives who see your kids once in a “Blue Moon” may rightly or wrongly point out behavioral traits that you have been conveniently ignoring.  One of the hardest things to do is admit that your child (children) may need counseling.  I understand this can cast a shadow on your feelings as a proper parent.

Not only is there nothing wrong with adolescent psychotherapy, there may be something in it for your family that will change everyone’s attitude toward each other moving forward into 2018.  Now is the time to address the “elephant in the room” and give me a call.  My name is Dr. Steven Sussman.  I am a noted child psychotherapist in Mountainside NJ and Staten Island NY.  Call for an appointment early in this New Year at (908) 217-8106.
