Not Taking New Clients
Robert Gangi is a psychologist trained in New York who has seen clients for the past 20 years. His early experiences in crisis services for New York City emphasized trauma and loss and included substantial work with those impacted by 9/11. About a third of his clients still contact him regarding loss, but he is also available to assist with a much broader range of challenges.

Profile
“My training fortunately emphasized both academic rigor, which my clients don't need to notice, and intuitive human connection, which I hope they all feel.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Working as a psychologist was my compromise between medical and art school. My training fortunately emphasized both academic rigor, which my clients don't need to notice, and intuitive human connection, which I hope they all feel. Both remain essential after 20 years of practice and continuing academic work at NYU.
What should someone know about working with you?
I believe that attempts to approach people in a standardized way, which is more common these days, are not helpful. Therapy usually begins with particular concerns arising from a particular life and ways in which things are not working. Clients deserve and benefit most from thoughtful assistance from me that is carefully tailored to the idiosyncrasies with which we all live.
