Matthew Spieler is a licensed psychologist practicing on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He holds a Ph.D. from Fordham University and has worked in a variety of settings, including college counseling centers, public schools, hospitals, and community clinics. He has worked with adults and adolescents, and has experience working with people who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, and chronic pain.
Dr. Spieler is also an adjunct professor in the Department of Counseling and Counseling Psychology at Fordham University. He approaches his work as a therapist with a deep respect for each person's unique and complex life experience and a belief that therapy offers a space in which trauma and emotional pain can be healed and longstanding patterns that limit a person's potential can be changed.
Dr. Spieler's approach to therapy involves helping people to become aware of psychological patterns that operate outside of their awareness and using the therapy room as a place in which one can develop new ways of relating to oneself and to others.
Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)
Depression - Providing support and promoting healing of hopelessness, low motivation and energy, sadness, irritability, sleep disturbance, and loss of interest and pleasure in life
Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse
Relationship issues - Understanding one’s wants and needs in relationships; exploring patterns of interaction, addressing concerns, and strengthening satisfaction in relationships and dating
Chronic pain - Managing the biological, psychological, and emotional aspects of pain
Self-esteem - Cultivating self-compassion, assertiveness, and confidence; developing ways to reduce suffering, anxiety, social withdrawal, and self-neglect
