Best therapist

When I met, Dr. Colasurdo I had just broken up with my fiance. I was in a real dark place; I’ve been seeing him now for almost a year. He’s definitely been helpful and he’s extremely easy to speak with; it’s almost like you’re speaking to a friend but actually getting help. I connected with one therapist prior to seeing him and that didn’t work out; then someone recommended me to him. He literally saved my life.. anyone looking for a therapist I highly recommend him

Saved my life

When I first got referred to Dr. C I was in a terrible space mentally. Bad relationships, Job I hate, filled with potential but just existing and wasting away. I wasn’t interested in being me anymore and I just wanted to run away. With Dr. C’s help and guidance I’ve completely turned my life around. Any toxic relationship I had has been dismissed, I’ve improved my job situation, and he’s given me the confidence to find my place in the world... Great doctor, great person. Seeing Dr. C was one of the best decisions I’ve even made

 Highly approachable & down-to-earth

I saw Dr. Colasurdo weekly for more than a year for issues related to dysthymia and depression. From the very first visit I felt extraordinarily comfortable opening up to him and sharing the details of my life—including what I didn’t like about it. Sessions felt informal and conversational, but after each session I could tell that real work had been done. He has a direct, no-nonsense manner about him that I very much appreciated; our sessions typically touched upon film, music, art, literature, politics, and the like, but always in a way that circled back to whatever issue I was experiencing and trying to work through.

I have been a patient of Dr. James Colasurdo, for a little over a year. I came in, with knowing something wasn’t quite right, but not knowing exactly what it was. I knew it wouldn’t be easy. Dr. Colasurdo was patient, kind and extremely understanding. He is very intuitive and sensed my problem within a short time. Thus, we were able to work through it. He is extremely intelligent and has showed me tools to work with, meditation being just one of them. I highly recommend Dr. Colasurdo.




 Great Interactive, Mindful Therapist

I’ve been seeing Dr. Colasurdo for a few months now and so far our weekly sessions have been really helpful for me. Prior to seeing Dr. Colasurdo, I had been in and out of therapy for years because I felt like I wasn’t making any real changes in my life - I was simply reliving past experiences over and over for the sake of it, going in circles. For some people that might be helpful but it wasn’t for me. Dr. Colasurdo is the first therapist I’ve come across who takes part in a back-and-forth interactive conversation and who incorporates mindfulness into our sessions.

I have been a patient of Dr Colasurdo for almost two years and he has helped me immensely. When I began treatment I was going through a very tumultuous time in my life and dealing with a great deal of anger and depression. Dr Colasurdo has taught me some very useful techniques to help me deal with these extreme emotions. Dr Colasurdo is a very caring person who is able to share advanced concepts in a very plain spoken easy to understand way. I would recommend him to anyone who feels like they need guidance through a bad time in their lives.

I’ve been seeing Dr. James Colasurdo for over a year now and he has truly changed my life for the better. When I first went to see him I was having increasingly intense panic episodes. I went to therapy out of fear that I finally needed to do something about my anxiety. I didn’t expect to open up right away, but Dr. Colasurdo made me feel comfortable immediately and allowed me to name and confront my anxiety. Through our conversations and his practice of mindfulness, I learned to accept my anxiety, which has given me control over it. I highly recommend Dr. Colasurdo. He has become an important figure in my life by helping me tranistion through a truly daunting period. I’m certain he can do this for all of his patients. Thank you Dr. Colasurdo!!


 Just My Humble Experience

When I first met Dr. C, I was going through a custody battle for my little girl and in the worst emotional state of my life. I was severely depressed and anxious. 2 years later and I’ve been awarded full custody, lost 80 lbs, got a new girlfriend and a new job. Now I’m not crediting the doctor for my complete life transformation but he helped me get through the toughest part my life. He taught me coping mechanisms. He showed me that I was stronger than I had ever imagined.

Dr Colasurdo is compassionate, mindful psychologist. I found that there are very few mental health practitioners in NY who accept insurance and provide his quality of care. Dr C was very open, generous, and insightful. In my therapy with him, he intuitively knew when to push a little harder to help me make progress but always with kindness and understanding. I definitely felt supported in his care and that he was an ally in my quest for better mental health.
