Professional statement

Dr. Guy Maytal is a psychiatrist practicing in NY and NJ. Dr. Maytal helps adults who struggle with mood disorders like depression and anxiety, including generalized anxiety and panic disorders. He also has extensive experience supporting those undergoing treatment for cancer or other serious medical illnesses, helping them overcome the psychological impacts of medical treatment. Many of Dr. Maytal’s clients are currently in remission but fear becoming sick once more, leading to prolonged feelings of fear, grief, and loneliness. He also works with those whose family members are sick and require their help.

Dr. Maytal offers supportive counseling as clients process through their emotions. He offers guidance on how to make healthy changes, and also encourages clients to set goals for themselves and take small steps each day towards those goals. When appropriate, he offers clients medication management, prescribing them medications that can help with their mental health symptoms. This can be helpful when their emotions are overwhelming, including when going through major medical treatment. Dr. Matal also enjoys exploring faith, religion, and spirituality with his clients, particularly as they adjust to their medical illness or mental health condition. He also incorporates psychodynamic principles and teaches clients thought-based and behavioral tools to use when distressed.

Dr. Maytal earned an MD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He has over 20 years of experience in psychiatry and is now the Chief of Integrated Care at Forge Health. He listens to clients with warmth and care, creating space for them to feel understood.

Message to clients

Psychiatric care is an opportunity to reflect on your life, to put your past in your past, and to take the time to authentically create a meaningful future for yourself. It is a gift you give yourself - one that is thrilling, challenging, expansive, and even life-altering. I endeavor to provide a warm and supportive space for such an engagement, where you are listened to and empowered. I have an integrated approach that combines psychotherapy with medication management (as appropriate). Additionally, I aim to provide a space for people dealing with medical illnesses to create new and creative ways to think about all the changes that such illnesses can cause. I look forward to connecting and working with you.
