David Rivenson, MHC, practices mental health counseling at Psychiatric Services NYC, where he takes a holistic approach that considers every aspect of each client’s life. This therapeutic, patient-centered style is vital for optimal success because everything a person goes through and encounters in life plays a role in how they think and respond to the world. David considers it a privilege to work with clients in Brooklyn, New York. Together, he and his patients foster a caring relationship that not only helps him grow as an individual and a professional, but also provides a service that improves his clients’ well-being.
David provides therapy for a range of mental health disorders, but he possesses special expertise in mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and substance abuse. Working as a psychotherapist has given him a better understanding of how an array of life events work together to influence each person’s mental well-being — a perspective that significantly supports his goal of treating each individual as unique.
David received his master degree in Mental Health Counseling from Brooklyn College. Since then, he has gained a wealth of experience providing psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, and families.
He primarily works from a psychodynamic model while incorporating aspects of experiential therapy and motivational interviewing to help clients gain insight into their lives and facilitate change in areas they wish to improve.
David also has experience in evidence-based psychotherapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and functional family therapy. During counseling, he pulls from various therapeutic models to ensure that each client receives the form of psychotherapy that works for their personality and goals.
