What Makes Richard Sussman Therapy Unique?
In his practice, Richard Sussman offers a unique integration of meditation and psychotherapy. Over almost 50 years as a practicing therapist studying contemplative practices, he has learned that there is a significant crossover between the two.
Simply put, psychotherapy—whether it’s through a specific focus, such as couples counseling, anger management therapy or addiction counseling—helps people deal with where they’re at, and meditation helps them deal with where they’re at with where they’re at. Integrating the two can lead to profound breakthroughs and help alleviate depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, low self-esteem and many more of the issues that so many people struggle with in our modern culture.
Rich’s approach can also be seen as specializing in the integration of Western psychology and Eastern spiritual traditions. Rich has served as the Co-Director of the New Haven Center for Gestalt Therapy and was a core faculty member of the Gestalt Therapy Center in New York, where he trained and supervised professional practitioners.
Rich’s unique approach has proven effective in the treatment of a wide variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, guilt, grief, and self-esteem problems, with a special emphasis on healing relationship problems and marital infidelity counseling in NY and CT.
While Rich honors traditional Western therapeutic methodologies, which focus on treating the “symptoms” of the self, his work ultimately exposes the illusory nature of that very self, opening up a radical shift in awareness and identity. This facilitates a deeper sense of freedom, aliveness and spontaneity.
