MESSAGE TO CLIENTS
Hi there, I'm Noah Clyman, the founder of NYC Cognitive Therapy. I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the field. My post-graduate training at the Beck Institute, under the guidance of Dr. Aaron T. Beck, MD and colleagues, was a pivotal moment in my journey. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of being a Fellow of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and contributing to various large-scale psychotherapy training programs in CBT for therapists of all skill levels.
My clientele includes older adolescents, adults, older adults, and couples facing a wide array of difficulties such as depression and anxiety disorders. What clients can expect from treatment with me is a warm, empathetic, and collaborative approach. I believe in the power of a strong therapeutic alliance and work diligently to create a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors.
I believe in the efficacy of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and get immense pleasure from teaching clients how to be their own therapists. By doing so, I help people solve problems and feel better in the present as well as helping them develop the tools they need to manage difficulties in the future. My approach is collaborative, warm, and non-judgmental, providing a safe space for clients to focus on challenges and develop coping strategies to feel their best.
I would be honored to help you overcome difficulties, discover your strengths, and achieve your important goals. I am here to support you every step of the way, giving you space to heal, grow, and learn as we work together to create positive change in your life. I welcome you to reach out to me with questions, and I hope I can be a part of your journey.
SPECIALTIES + EXPERTISE
My academic journey began with a Master's degree from New York University. I then had the opportunity to dive deep into Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with intensive post-graduate training at the Beck Institute. I was personally supervised by Dan Beck, LICSW, a distinguished teacher and expert in cognitive therapy. Dan Beck’s father is Aaron T. Beck, M.D., the internationally known scientist who created Cognitive Behavior Therapy and was recently recognized as one of the most influential therapists of all time. As a Certified Trial Based Cognitive Therapist (TBCT), I mastered new techniques for working on more deeply embedded beliefs, called core beliefs. Other training include; Compassion Focused Treatment with Kristin Neff; Transformational chairwork with Scott Kellog; Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) with Edna Foa, Gottman Method Couples Therapy with John and Julie Gottman, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with Steven Hayes, and more. This dedication led to being awarded a Fellow by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy.
I received certification from the distinctive Academy of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies (A-CBT) in 2010. It is important to note that while many identify themselves as cognitive therapists, The Academy of Cognitive Therapy is the only certifying organization for cognitive therapists that actually evaluates applicants’ knowledge and ability before granting certification. I am one of only 130 people in the world to hold advanced certification as Trainer and Consultant in Cognitive Therapy.
LICENSES + CERTIFICATIONS
I remain an active educator with various teaching credentials. In addition to supervising 10 therapists in my group practice, I am on the faculty of the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and serve as an Adjunct Lecturer at graduate schools like NYU and Columbia University. Here, I assist clinicians in mastering the nuances of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Previously, I built a comprehensive internship program at the Gay Men's Health Crisis and co-developed & instructed the graduate course 'Cognitive Behavioral Treatments' at Boston University for nearly a decade.
In 2012, I joined the ACT Credentialing Committee. Here, I serve as a "rater," an expert CBT therapist responsible for reviewing and scoring audio samples submitted by individuals pursuing certification in cognitive therapy. Additionally, I've achieved recognition as an ACT Certified Trainer/Consultant, signifying my ability to mentor, consult, or supervise other aspiring cognitive behavioral therapists.
