Meet Our Therapists
Gabrielle Schreyer-Hoffman, Ph.D.
Therapy is often sought when feeling lost, overwhelmed or wanting to change parts of ourselves or our lives. In therapy you can learn and grow through understanding internal conflicts and identifying your values, desires and needs. We all struggle with destructive forces that impede us from achieving our goals and living authentically. In therapy, I work collaboratively with you to understand the destructive and constructive thoughts and behaviors, the ways they impact your life and how these forces can be modified or built upon to create positive change. Additionally, we will embark on a journey toward self-awareness, where we gain insights into the ways in which your past and present impacts your outlook, view of self, and way of thinking and being. I will help you to enhance self-understanding and awareness, increase your free will and your ability to cope with present challenges by implementing different treatment modalities and techniques. With a curious, genuine, empathetic and nonjudgment stance, I work collaboratively with my patients to help them achieve their goals and increase self-understanding.
Training and Education
I have served diverse patient populations of all ages, abilities, and socioeconomic backgrounds throughout my training. I have received clinical training at Mount Sinai Hospital’s Eating and Weight Disorders Program, Mount Sinai – Beth Israel’s Child, Adolescent and Family Program, Columbia University Medical Center, Pace Counseling Center, Renfrew Center, Neuropsychology Associates, and the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. I completed my penultimate training at the Karen Horney clinic. My eclectic training and experience with children, adolescent, adult and senior patients has allowed me to build a strong clinical foundation for understanding and serving patient’s mental health needs across the lifespan.
My research had been primarily focused on eating disorders and health psychology. I love working with emerging adult populations and facilitating growth and healing through life transitions. I also enjoy providing group psychotherapy and engaging patients in a collaborative process of self-discovery.
I am trained to work with adults, adolescents and children. I received my training at multiple public and private institutions across New York City, including Mount Sinai Beth Israel, New York City Health and Hospitals – Jacobi Medical Center and the Institute for Psychoanalytic training and research. I completed my Post-Doctoral training at Metropolitan Center for Mental Health with a partnership with New York Presbyterian Hospital – Columbia.
Over the course of my years training, I worked in many different settings, learning every angle of mental health treatment with diverse populations. These experiences include inpatient psychiatry, psychiatric emergency and health psychology as well as in community-based and hospital-based outpatient clinics and in college counseling. I also conduct Neuropsychological Assessments and do assessment consulting work with private schools.
I love teaching and working with students, being a part of their growth and learning. I have worked as an Adjunct Professor teaching undergraduate and graduate courses at Hunter College, Pace University and New York University.
