I have a son, 26 and brilliant, who was “abused” by his father - to the best of my knowledge the
“abuse” was not sexual, but emotional and verbal. It has left him extremely angry - and hurt and untrusting - he tried to “kill” himself once a few years ago - thank God he did not succeed.

He is in a long term relationship (and his wonderful girlfriend has come to me for suggestions) - she feels he is ready to seek help so we are seeking recommendation for a therapist in New York City that understands “abuse” in all of it's forms - anyone out there that can give me a
recommendation - I will be for ever grateful

Hi Whitecat,

Our President, Dr. Richard Gartner practices in NY. If he could not take your son on at this time I am sure he could make a recommendation.

His name here is Richard NY and you could send him a PM. He works out of a large clinic in the city.

A second thought--go to the list of therapists on our site and see who yoou find in the area.

You may need to use the Site Map to get to the therapists list.

Just know that there are a lot of opportunities for your son. I am certainly sorry that he had such a bad expperience with his father. That has hurt him a great deal, but he can get significantly better.
