Low-Fee Sliding Scale
Men must be either in the on-going weekly group, have been in the group at some time or are welcomed via at least a phone interview.
ALL DAY RETREATS
This all-day Retreat is based upon the on-going weekly group – allowing us to go deeper and do group exercises which time does not allow during the weekly 2 hour period, such as Family Sculpting, Psycho-drama and Drumming. In this group men will find a safe, nurturing place to move beyond pain related to childhood sexual abuse. Participants will find assistance working through isolation, fear, confusion, depression, low self-esteem and anger with other men who have had similar experiences. Come feel safety and trust as you gain greater self control and share the recovery process with other men like you!
This is the group who created and produced the film “Boyhood Shadows: I Swore I’d Never Tell” and a PSA that preceded it. See www.bravemantherapy.com for streaming videos and articles about this group and other related issues.

In order to keep our services as safe as we can, we ask that two things are true of all clients. One is that they have experienced childhood sexual abuse and, two that they have not committed a sexual offence. We also require our clients to take part in a face-to-face Social History interview prior to commencing group, to gather pertinent information and to determine group readiness.
Therapy group for men that operates from a Trauma model of group therapy.
Our groups are offered in three 10-week cycles/year (Winter, Spring, Fall). They are closed groups, meaning that members are admitted only at the beginning of our cycles (January, April, September). The group is limited to 10 men, and is facilitated by two trained professional facilitators. Please call for more information.

My fee is $75 per session, although I maintain a sliding scale for those in need.
Participants should concurrently be engaged in individual therapy or have had long-term therapy in the past. Members are requested to commit to 10 sessions. I would like to meet with interested men twice before joining the group, and then individually every three months to process feelings about the group experience.
My first responsibility is to keep the group safe, so that members are empowered to be open, vulnerable, and curious. This group will offer support, understanding, and therapeutic exploration of the impact of sexual abuse on the lives of survivors, with the goals of healing from the abuse and making lives better. Sexual abuse also encroaches on the survivor’s ability to be engaged with others. This group experience, added to in-depth individual treatment, offers an opportunity for support, understanding, bonding, and forming healthier and safer relationships.

Group Description: This group is for men who have been in individual therapy focusing on childhood abuse for at least two years. The goal of the group is to explore ways in which survival skills developed as children are creating hindrances to accomplishing adult goals. The group is intensely interactive. The emphasis is on relationships within the group which mirror inter-relationship problems experienced by members in their personal lives. Each member sets an individual goal based on his current issues. As the facilitator, my role is to keep the discussion on track, provide insight based on my clinical experience and keep the room safe by helping members to express feelings and resolve conflicts.
I am a psychotherapist specializing in individual and group treatment for men who were sexually abused as children. Currently, in addition to my private practice, I provide clinical supervision for staff at the Crime Victims Treatment Center of St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, where I pioneered our treatment program for male survivors of sexual abuse. As a trauma specialist, I have provided individual and group treatment to over a thousand survivors of sexual abuse and assault.
