Professional statement

Dr. Ira Bindman is a psychotherapist on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He provides long-term, insight-oriented therapy for clients who are ready to engage in deep self-exploration, as well as short-term, goal-focused therapy to alleviate a specific challenge. With over three decades of clinical experience, Dr. Bindman sees a wide-ranging clientele. He is particularly skilled at working with clients who have experienced deeply-rooted childhood traumas, such as sexual abuse or abandonment, as well as those facing a major life decision like whether they want to get married or change careers.

Dr. Bindman's treatment approach is grounded in psychoanalysis and empathy. He focuses on what is happening in the moment and how it relates to a client's past experiences. While he lets his clients take the lead during a session, he strives to challenge them to look at things from a different perspective.

Dr. Bindman is passionate about what he does and really cares about each of his clients. He creates a safe, natural space where individuals feel comfortable digging deep to find out what they truly want out of life. He does sessions at this time using Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or the phone.
