About Gilbert McCurdy
My practice focuses on treating intimacy/relationship problems, sexual addiction/compulsivity, alcohol/substance abuse, Al-Anon/ACOA issues, codependency/co-addiction, personality issues, childhood traumas, anxiety and depression. In addition, I have a specialty working in the LGBT community. My career began with an MBA working on Wall Street. Since 1995 I’ve been practicing psychotherapy as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and received my Masters in Social Work from Columbia University. My former career in business, combined with extensive experience consulting with corporate Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) has been particularly helpful to people facing all kinds of career/workplace issues. The treatment modalities I utilize include individual and group psychotherapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR. In addition, I am a Certified Schema Therapist, a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) as well as a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP). I lead a Gay Men’s Psychotherapy group focusing on new experiences relating to one another each week, emphasizing putting thoughts and feelings into words as it relates the group and the group members. I also run a group for men struggling with Sexually Compulsive/Addictive behavior or what is also referred to as Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior. The group offers an opportunity for support and accountability while working towards sexual health and improving connections with members.
