I have been dealing with social anxiety for a while now, not really knowing how to deal with it or if I could ever improve. But after attending group therapy with Larry, I am more confident and less avoidant. I now know techniques on how I can tackle this and also more on why social anxiety happens in the first place. Larry has encouraged and challenged my group which has helped us make tremendous progress. Even after our sessions, he would make himself available if we needed extra help or guidance. Larry has so much experience and has seen it all, which is why I recommend him if you are looking to improve your self-confidence and tackle social anxiety.

Larry is an excellent therapist. This is the second time I have worked with him. In 2011 I participated in his CBT workshop (Group Therapy). That was an immensely rewarding experience; it helped me improve self-awareness, learn strategies on how to work through anxiety, and in large part increased my self-esteem. I would recommend this workshop to everyone. In 2020, I started experiencing severe anxiety again and resumed working with Larry from Oct 2020 - Jan 2021. My anxiety was manifesting as procrastination, general anxiety, avoidance, etc. Larry helped me develop strategies, routines that are helping me overcome these wide-ranging symptoms. I am successfully avoiding negative thinking, catastrophizing, stop all-or-nothing thinking, and other similar thought patterns. Larry also helped me with my concerns related to my twins (8 years old) which was also an area that I needed help. I wholeheartedly recommend Larry.

As someone who has worked with several therapists over the course of my life, I have experienced a range of techniques employed by mental health therapists (talk therapy, Freudian, somatic therapy, etc). I can attest to Larry's technique and approach. His astute ability to listen, synthesize, and offer practical guidance leads to results. I've been surprised with my progress towards defined goals in working with him. And - I am also pleasantly astonished by how well telehealth is working (I admit - I was skeptical at first); primarily because he is so engaged. If you are looking for practical tools—and ready to do the work to grow—he may be a very good fit for you too!

I have seen various counselors over the years; however, Larry has been the best at identifying the root causes for my habitual worry and generalized anxiety. We have developed various strategies and refined them, as needed. There have been highs and lows in my progress; however, Larry has been there for me, listened intently, and helped to facilitate discipline in adhering to the agreed-upon program. I have not worked with any counselor who has been as invested in the improvement of my mental health as Larry. I have made progress thanks to him and for this, I am extremely grateful.

Larry helped me tremendously this year. I especially appreciated the way he structured our sessions - always with a clear goal in mind. He was always looking for feedback/suggestions, which I also think was great. Would definitely recommend.

Larry was very helpful in providing many helpful techniques for dealing with social anxiety. He led group therapy sessions which involved opportunities to challenge negative beliefs and practice helpful healthy behaviors and thoughts in a safe environment. I highly recommend working with him because I have been able to make significant progress under his direction.

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.

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.
