I would absolutely recommend Larry Cohen for social anxiety help. I participated in a therapy group that he facilitated and he is very thorough in explaining conditions and offering personalized insights. He is a great listener and offered a gentle nudge to keep making progress when needed, which I found especially helpful. He offered a variety of different exercises and activities, including field trips where we practiced initiating conversations with strangers. He genuinely seemed to care about the progress we were making and solicited feedback after each session, both written and verbal. He provided a structure to the group while also allowing each person to define for themselves what they wanted to put into the group and what particular goals they wanted to work on. At the end of the group, he provided a progress report comparing our social anxiety results before and after group. It was an intense experience, but very worthwhile and I have noticed a big difference in how I feel.

I found Larry's approach both professional and thorough in his assessment and discourse for the duration of our sessions. He set clear goals and was quite thorough in his questions and advice. Plus I liked the home setting.

Larry is an excellent practitioner and cares about his patients. Working with Larry was a transformational experience. I am now able to apply CBT tools to deal with negative thoughts and emotions and overcome irrational fears. As a result, I have a renewed confidence and am able to live life fully. It feels great! Larry equips you to become your own therapist essentially, and enables you to be capable of handling difficult thoughts, emotions and circumstances that arise in the course of one's life.

Larry is by far the best therapist I have ever worked with. He is very understanding and patient, but knows how to be firm when necessary. He always had my best interests at heart; a consummate professional. Unlike other therapists I've seen, he sets clear goals and provides a clear plan for progress, and it was amazing to watch myself progress. He uses CBT in a way that lets you become your own therapist through making alternative, yet subtle, shifts in perceiving your insecurities. I highly recommend him!

Larry is incredibly thoughtful and measured in his approach with people. I had an incredibly positive experience working with him over the course of the year. I especially benefited from his pragmatic plan-based approach to therapy, which made me feel like I could accomplish my goals with relative ease. Would absolutely recommend to others.

I was in one of the recent group sessions, with 5 to 7 others. Through discussions, role playing, daily and weekly "homework," and field trips, we worked on the techniques and experiments to lessen our anxiety. Some seemed a better "fit" for me, while others seemed more comfortable with different techniques. We also worked on ways to alter our core beliefs toward a more healthy and realistic outlook. Larry ensures everyone has equal time in discussions and presentations. He is very fair in providing feedback and challenging us. I learned a number of helpful techniques that helps minimize my social anxiety that I continue to use as the need arises.

Larry Cohen is a gem -- attentive, articulate, patient and caring. He paid close attention, asked focused, appropriate questions, and made recommendations ("homework") that helped put me back in control of my life. Larry's calm demeanor and encouraging, low-key style made it easy to engage in frank and open give-and-take with him. In short, Larry listened constructively and offered solutions that were objective, practical and realistic. I am deeply grateful to him.

Larry's individual and group therapy are incredibly powerful methods for the treatment of social anxiety. His practice is rooted in many years of experience navigating the subtleties of treatment and honing in on what actually works. I have spent the better part of my life searching for ways to combat my social anxiety, but it wasn't until I met Larry that I actually began to make significant strides in becoming more comfortable with who I am and how I perceive myself and others. I am eternally grateful for having met Larry. If social anxiety is a challenge for you, do yourself a favor and commit to group or individual sessions with Larry and see for yourself the radical change it can bring.

Larry helped me learn important strategies to overcome anxiety and depression, and to achieve personal goals I had previously not been making progress on. If you want a therapist to just be a warm and caring listener, and to not challenge you to make changes in your life, go elsewhere. Larry will guide you in learning and using skills and techniques will help you change your life.

I attended Larry's CBT group for social anxiety in 2018. Social anxiety is by nature a difficult problem to overcome because it requires the individual's own initiative in facing their fears. Larry's group is among the few that offer an effective treatment by empowering the individual to conduct their own experiments and thus redefining their core beliefs, all while providing a supportive environment in which to discuss and practice techniques. No BS theory, your experiences are your teacher.

I had individual therapy with Larry for social anxiety, work-related anxiety, and relationship challenges. I gained a lot of useful techniques that I continue to use to challenge my thought patterns and become less socially anxious. Larry is patient and attentive and makes sure to address everything that is important to the patient each session.

I went to Dr Cohen seeking help for my anxiety and depression. He taught me very useful tools for how to manage both. So I still deal with anxiety and depression, but both are less severe and less frequent.

My psychologist recommended that I join Larry's group to work through my social anxiety. It took me two years to make an appointment and walk into his home. I was terrified. I can honestly say that I use the skills that I learned from Larry's CBT focused group every single day. I am a social worker now and am able to "sell"CBT to others. I use the techniques I learned to help with both my psychopathology and every day life situations. Larry's group was nothing short of life changing.

I owe a great debt to Larry for the transformation that took place in my life. He is a patient counselor who takes the time to know each individual and offers unwavering support throughout the program. He understands the range of emotions that one may feel taking this step and offers a thoughtful and well executed process to face and overcome your fears. It changed my life.
