Professional statement

During this difficult period of COVID-19, Dan works remotely via thera-link or doxy.me, HIPAA-compliant teleconferencing tools. Insurance is accepted.

Dan Sharir is a Clinical Psychologist in the Upper West Side of Manhattan specializing in anxiety, depression, and addiction, especially with alcohol. He has experience working with adults across the lifespan and tailors his treatment approaches to each client’s needs and goals.

Dan takes a skills-based treatment approach to therapy that incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness practices. He helps new clients define their symptoms and determine if they have an anxiety disorder or clinical depression. He then works with them to identify triggers and explore their thought processes. His clients leave sessions with new coping techniques and mindfulness strategies to help control their thoughts. Dan also encourages changes in behaviors, like developing a daily routine or engaging more with others. He utilizes a similar treatment approach when working with clients who are navigating addiction to help them change their thought patterns and associated behaviors.

Having over a decade of experience in the mental health field, Dan has a deep understanding of the various challenges individuals face and what it takes for them to take control of their lives. His office is conveniently located near the 72nd street subway station.
