About this pro

Effective therapy. I am obsessed with getting you to feel better. As quickly as possible. We will use every "tool" in therapy if it helps you.

I have been dedicated to psychotherapy and psychology since the 1970s and a licensed professional since 1999. I am a Ph.D. Psychologist and an LCSW with experience in a wide range of issues. I currently work exclusively online and I have helped more than 350 in this modality. I specialize in adult psychotherapy and focus on helping people with depression, anxiety, couples' communications and adult survivors of childhood trauma. 

Psychotherapy must be a collaborative venture. Although my guidance is essential, your work is always more important than mine.

My sole interest is in seeing you achieve your goals and to feel good. I have studied for family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dynamic therapy and more. 

Psychotherapy should not be limited to 50 minutes per week. Every person has unique needs and requirements. I will give you a schedule that will help make our work go as fast or as slow as you need. Additionally, I will ask for your honest feedback on a weekly basis in order that we both feel that we are accomplishing your goals.

I have the greatest pleasure from knowing that I have helped people live better and more joyous lives.
Here are some real, unsolicited reviews from some of the people I have recently worked with.
Written by Y.O. on Jan 22, 2020 after counseling with Ari for 1 year and 6 months on issues concerning relationship

Dr. Hahn takes the time to really addressed my concerns. He understands me and I wouldn't change him for the world.

 Written by C.A. on Nov 10, 2019 after counseling with Ari for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

Dr. Hahn in a short period of time was able to understand me and recognize what I needed to help myself and get to my breakthrough point. He has helped me through years of trauma in a short period of time. He has been beyond professional and helpful to me every session I have had with him. He is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend him!

 Written by A.L. on Oct 09, 2019 after counseling with Ari for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning addictions, and trauma and abuse

I like that Ari, my therapist, challenges me. I do want to be better and not just have someone to complain to. I've been at this for a year and I see improvement. I'm not naive, Ari has a great set of tools and wisdom. I also see how high in demand he is. That says something. He's no Depack Chopra, he's real.

 Written by L.A. on Aug 25, 2019 after counseling with Ari for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and career difficulties

Ari has been great. I like his logical approach to things and he has been able to teach me tangible things I can use everyday to manage my anxiety. He gives me the time to speak about what is bothering me and never passes any judgment. Instead, through his wisdom, he is able to show me different perspectives and approaches them with me very gently. I really appreciate this. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is ready to get the help they need.

 Written by S.U. on Aug 13, 2019 after counseling with Ari for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Dr. Hahn is wise! He listens, understands and gives advice. I feel safe with him. I feel lucky that he is the one that was chosen for me. I feel MUCH better than I did months ago and I owe that to Dr. Hahn. He pulled me out of my depths of sorrow and grief. I am grateful!

He is awesome. If you need help you should see him.

  • Julianne S.

    Dr. Hahn was a great listener but also provide very practical advice and when it came to helping me get along with my partner he rehearsed actual 'disarming' techniques with me that made it easier to stop an argument before it started in real life.

  • Golda A.

    it’s my first time to try counseling and Dr.Ari been listening in every detail of what i say and i felt comfortable saying things.

  • Joleen G.

    Dr. Hahn was very patient, he immediately made me feel comfortable and this allowed me to be open and honest without fear of judgement. He was very easy to talk to. I learned so much about communication, how to explore what I’m feeling and how to express that in a way that allows me to be heard and not to be afraid of communicating my feelings. Our sessions left me feeling calmer, willing to move towards what I wanted, better equipped to take action. I’m grateful for our sessions and the lessons I’ve learned and how it allows me to think more and want to learn more. I’ve had choices for therapists and will always seek out Dr. Hahn.

  • Lauren B.

    Ari was kind, thoughtful, and experienced in working with childhood trauma. He was able to gently guide me through some incredibly painful memories, and help me bring sense to senseless things. I have worked with several other therapists over the years, but none as good as Ari.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

You come first. The primary objective is to first determine if you feel comfortable with me and if I think I can help you. That is an ongoing evaluation. I am only interested in seeing you feel better.

Once you decide that you might want to work with me, we can schedule a phone conversation in order to give you the opportunity to interview me and decide if it feels right for you. If you decide to work with me we can set up an appointment and I will set you up in my records and documents system and send you the necessary paperwork (Intake forms, HIPAA forms, and the like). 

Our first sessions will be focused on clarifying what you are going through, your goals, and making sure that I have a very clear understanding of your experience.

We then will make a plan for change and explore the tools and techniques that work the best for you. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been professionally helping people since the 1970s and I have a Master's in clinical social work from Hunter College and a Ph.D. in psychology from Walden University. I have training in family therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy as well as a certification in hypnotherapy.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

$130 for a standard 50 minute session.

$250 for a 110 minute session.

Schedules and rates are negotiable. 

Messaging between sessions is encouraged.

Those are the standard prices. I can do a limited number of sliding scale patients.


What types of customers have you worked with?

Although I have worked with all types of clients in my long career, most of the people I work with suffer from some level of depression or anxiety. I also currently work with adults with relationship issues, communications improvement, and adult survivors of trauma. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Hiring a therapist should not be very different from hiring another professional. You need an opportunity to interview and decide if you think this is the right person for you. Listen to how the therapist answers your questions and if he or she can understand your issues and perspectives. And don't be shy to tell the therapist any of your complaints or problems with him or her at any time. You deserve the best.

Here are a number of questions you might want to ask:

How would you treat my problem?

Would you focus on the present distress or on the roots of the problem?

How active are you in therapy? Are you directive or passive?

How important is the relationship in therapy?

Then ask yourself if you felt comfortable in the conversation. Were you understood? Did you understand the therapist? Can you see yourself opening up to this person during therapy?
