Professional statement

Dr. Peter Lobl is a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Midtown, Manhattan. He primarily works with adults and couples who experience recurring and distressing relationship problems either at work or at home. He also treats mood, anxiety, and personality disorders. Having made a career change himself, Dr. Lobl also has expertise in working with clients who are considering a change in their own careers, especially those working in the legal field.

Dr. Lobl’s treatment approach is grounded in Psychodynamic Therapy, but he also integrates elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and Structural Family Therapy into his work with individuals and couples. Dr. Lobl first meets with his clients and spends time getting to know their history and reasons for seeking treatment before developing an individualized treatment plan.

Dr. Lobl’s compassion and knowledge are apparent the first time you meet him. He ultimately wants his clients to leave feeling empowered and ready to take control of their lives. Dr. Lobl worked as an Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital from 2015 to 1019 and as a Behavioral Scientist at the Institute for Family Health – Harlem Residency in Family Medicine from 2013 to 2019. His office is conveniently located at 315 Madison Avenue a block away from Grand Central Terminal.


Message to clients

Welcome. If you are reading this, something about your life likely does not feel right – either with a relationship, or with your experience of yourself, or with the direction you see yourself heading. If you are reading this, it hopefully also means that some part of you believes change is possible.

My approach to therapy is informed by your reasons for contacting me, my training as a psychologist, as well as by our working relationship.

In the first few sessions, we will go over what you would like to gain from therapy, and we will complete an intake assessment. I will also go over some of the parameters for therapy, including information about confidentiality, session frequency and duration, fees, insurance, and cancellations. At the end of these sessions, I will give you my impressions of what our work might entail, and we can discuss if my training and experience match your treatment needs. If we decide to start psychotherapy, we will discuss treatment goals and schedule our first therapy appointment.
