Professional statement

Jeffrey Kishner is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Manhattan specializing in helping adults navigate relationship and intimacy challenges. Jeffrey supports his clients to increase closeness and more fully engage in both romantic relationships and friendships. He also sees clients who are struggling with compulsive sexual behavior or romantic obsessions.

Jeffrey's approach is psychodynamic and relational. He works with clients to explore deep-rooted patterns and tendencies, bringing about an increased awareness of their subconscious habits and developing more effective coping strategies. He uses his relationship with clients as a mirror of what happens outside the therapy room, allowing them to closely examine the way they relate to partners and learn to how to bring their best and most authentic self to the relationship.

Jeffrey enjoys helping clients develop boundaries so they can enter into a healthy relationship that is full of love and respect. Ultimately, he wants every one of his clients to determine the type of partnerships that work for them, learn to recognize them when they appear, and make changes when they differ. Jeffrey is sex-positive and poly and kink friendly.

Message to clients

Are you struggling with sex, love or relationship issues? I can help. Perhaps you are having difficulty moving on from or deepening a commitment to a relationship. You feel isolated or resentful, possibly because you're not effectively communicating your needs. Maybe your sexual behavior interferes with your relationships, self-image, or productivity. You feel anxious, depressed. My goal is to help you manage these difficult feelings and develop strategies to build a more fulfilling life.
I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor who provides a safe, non-judgmental space where we can work through any difficulties you have honoring your needs and being authentic in partnerships. I also work with individuals struggling with sexually compulsive behavior or romantic obsession.
I am affirmative of all genders, sexualities, and relationship structures, and am kink-positive. In my work, I use a combination of treatment approaches to unearth your unconscious, challenge your thought patterns, and help you become more mindful and grounded.
