Are you struggling with a problem in your work or love life? Or are you suffering from emotional symptoms that leave you frustrated, alone, or fearful of the future? Whether you have been in therapy for years or never before, talk therapy with Dr. Swensen could be the perfect medicine. While I work on your entire personality, not just the symptom(s) you come to therapy with, it is a process of learning to say all of your thoughts and feelings, including ones that are embarrassing or leave you feeling shameful. Psychotherapy with me will offer you the chance to have the life you truly want, in love, work, and play.

I've been doing this over a quarter century and it always comes down to this: When you identify - and feel - what happens inside you, what happens between you and others, and what happened that you're not fully remembering or respecting, you feel better and function better. I've seen this happen across all types of people, all ages, and all kinds of problems that bring them into treatment. Of course, along the way I can help you with whatever person, boss, spouse, decision, or personality quirk (yours or theirs) that's irking you, but the real change and the real excitement come from that kind of discovery. Try it and see.

Dr. Vaughan believes that psychotherapy can benefit anyone. Clients pursue therapy for a wide variety of reasons. Some simply want an objective, non-judgmental, and trustworthy source of support and feedback, while others seek tools for working through crises. Therapy with Dr. Vaughan is engaging and active. The particular goals of psychotherapy are chosen by the client. Some examples of goals include personal growth and self-actualization, increased life satisfaction, improved relationships, greater self-confidence, effective stress management, and reduced anxiety and depression. Dr. Vaughan emphasizes that no problem is too big or small, common or rare, to be addressed in therapy.

Are you feeling alone and misunderstood? Are you experiencing conflicts that don't seem to be manageable? Are you feeling as if you aren't living up to your true potential? These are the questions that so many people ask and these are some of the very reasons why Psychotherapy is a useful tool for getting yourself back on track. I offer a supportive atmosphere where we can explore all of these questions and attempt to put them into a healthier perspective. Through our dynamic work together we will try to answer these questions and get you back to the person that you once knew and maybe, just maybe a chance to meet the person that you always hoped to become.

210 West 70th St., Suite 201, New York, New York 10023
I believe it is a privilege to have clients tell me their stories in psychotherapy. Clients often benefit from the process of unburdening themselves from the pain and upset they have been dealing with. I work in a very respectful manner to help clients start to change their perceptions to a more positive place. I am specifically trained in a solution focused, cognitive behavioral and family systems approach. These approaches tend to help people in a structured, timely manner to achieve the goals they have for their own therapy.

I look at thoughts and feelings what is important to you to give you a clearer approach to your path in life and what may be getting in the way. You may have an idea of how you want to be helped, and I will formulate a specific idea of how I can best help you. The reason that I like doing this kind of therapy is it is deep work that can be life changing.

True healing—deep healing—begins with understanding the impact of psychological forces and their frictions in our lives—families, ancestry, schools, cultures, friends, and work. This recognition is the catalyst for your own natural healing process and the core of my approach. I am trained in a number of models of healing, including Internal Family Systems Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Gestalt Therapy and Intuitive Healing and other techniques. I apply these techniques individually and in combination according to the needs of my clients, to help them become better parents, to deepen their intimate relationships and flourish as healthy individuals.

People come to psychotherapy for different reasons: relationship or career issues, depression, anxiety, grief, or even because of a feeling that something isn’t quite right, or life could be better. I offer short-term work for symptom relief, but also work longer term if you are interested in deeper exploration and more profound change. These two modes of working are not mutually exclusive and both can lead to enhanced self-understanding, improved relationships and also help work through issues arising from a challenging social or familial environment.
