What People Say About Larry Cohen, LICSW

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 is a caring, effective therapist who combines evidence-based practices with a thoughtful listening style. I made great progress working with Larry on work-related anxiety, and I can't thank him enough. I highly recommend Larry to anyone who seeks effective CBT.

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.

Larry is a very caring teacher/counselor who wants only the best out of his patients. He encourages you in various ways and will push you to get the best out of you. It will be uncomfortable, at times, and seem demanding, however, I quickly learned it's only for the best. I have to remind myself how else will I break out of my shell and step outside my comfort zone. He does encourage you to speak-up and give feedback. Overall, a very great experience!

I was in Larry's social anxiety group and he taught us different skills/techniques to deal with the social anxiety. The group is very interactive and Larry make the members feel comfortable expressing themselves even if all group members have social anxiety issues. I've learned and changed since I joined the group and I'd recommend Larry to anyone who has social anxiety and want to make some changes in their lives.

I came to Larry for social anxiety and participated in the group program. It gave me the tools to decrease my social anxiety greatly. Larry was always professional, attentive, knowledgable and caring. He taught me many valuable tools that helped me overcome my fears of interacting with people at work and in personal relationships. If you need help from social anxiety, please consider Larry. I can't imagine anyone better than Larry at treating social anxiety.

I had a really great experience, working with Larry. Before I started, I struggled greatly with social anxiety and at times, it felt paralyzing. Once I began working with Larry in group sessions, I learned how to address the underlying issues in my life that created my social anxiety. As those sessions progressed, I actively began to engage in social interactions with strangers, co-workers, and began dating. This definitely changed my life for the better!

When I first started seeing Larry, I was a socially-anxious college kid with very low self-esteem. I'm now a confident adult, happily married with an active social life. He is a brilliant therapist who's compassion, attentiveness and expertise are the best I've experienced. He has a systematic but flexible approach to challenging underlying negative assumptions that were the basis of my social anxiety and other issues. Larry's cognitive restructuring method was incredibly effective for me.
