    Comment:  I highly suggest the Ackerman Institute. My wife and I had great success with our therapy there, and I know of other couples who’d say the same. (They’re a training entity, but these are folks who’re already therapists and looking for the prestigious certification.) The Institute is based in the Flatiron, and it’s worth the schlepp, but with a new baby that might be hard. If you need something close by, they can recommend an Ackerman-trained provider.

    Comment:  My wife and I were in need of couples counseling to improve our communications skills. Our therapist was a practicing therapist, in training for more advanced methods (as all Ackerman therapists are). It’s a bit of a luck of the draw, but we had a wonderful therapist for a year that helped build our skills. And it was reassuring that she was backed by her team of trainees and manager, who often brought up things she had not herself thought of. It was a little awkward to be observed on occasion during our sessions through a one-way mirror, but the immediate team feedback really was helpful. I’m pretty sure sessions were $50. When you need a therapist is usually the moment you least want to find one. It takes time to find a good fit. Try to allot time, perhaps on a lunch break at work, to do the research. Find a new therapist if it’s not a match; don’t be afraid to break up with them!
