For more than 45 years, we have provided low-cost, confidential, state-of-the-art mental health services for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. We provide compassionate care to individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, culture, sexual orientation, political orientation, marital status, religious affiliation or physical or medical disability. While we do not accept health insurance, fees are established on a sliding-scale basis, and we will never turn away a patient due to financial circumstances. Our fees generally range from $5–$40 for psychotherapy sessions, $250 or less for child psychoeducational assessments, $350 or less for child neuropsychological assessment.

Mission Statement

The Max and Celia Parnes Family Psychological and Psychoeducational Services Clinic provides a variety of psychological services to individuals and their families, both in the Bronx and the Greater New York City communities. We are also the teaching and training center of the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology of Yeshiva University. Our mission is to offer affordable, state-of-the-art psychological care to everyone we serve. We accomplish this by providing a wide range of supervised state-of-the-art therapies to a broad-based population, especially those who cannot otherwise afford or access these services within the community.

Diversity Statement

There is also a strong commitment to respect and work within the framework of the religious and cultural values of the clients. The Parnes Clinic works with clients of religious, as well as non-religious, orientations. We are committed to providing services which are culturally sensitive and meaningful, as well as respectful of clients’ sexual orientation and their dignity and privacy. Most fundamentally, all those who provide services through the Parnes Clinic are devoted to ameliorating our clients’ suffering, enhancing their growth and sense of well-being, and always remaining mindful of their social and cultural milieu, as well as their very unique individualities. 

Patient Privacy and Confidentiality

Confidentiality ensures that the information you share with your therapist is privileged, private, safe and secure. We repeatedly train our students in the utilization of confidentiality procedures. All staff, therapists and supervisors who work at the Parnes Clinic are required to know and practice professional guidelines related to confidentiality according to federal HIPAA guidelines. We also do everything possible to ensure that your personal information remains confidential within our clinic. All files are securely stored and are available only to your therapists, their supervisors and the clinic administrative staff on a “need-to-know” basis. 

Release of information forms are used in situations in which you request that we share information in your records with external sources. A copy of this form is available at the clinic. Sometimes, however, confidentiality may be broken without your permission. If you suggest that you are planning on harming yourself or someone else in any way, we are legally mandated to share this information with appropriate sources to ensure that you and others are safe. Likewise, if we learn about the possibility of a child being abused, we must take steps to ensure that the child is safe.

Protecting Your Information

At the Parnes Clinic, we believe that your personal experiences and those documented in your clinical record deserve the utmost security. We have a unique training environment that requires ongoing dedication to training and practice in confidentiality procedures. Our staff, therapists and supervisors are trained in confidentiality guidelines. We have also taken extra steps and measures to ensure that your information remains confidential within our clinic.

All files are securely stored and are available only to your therapists, their supervisors and the clinic administrative staff on an as-needed basis. All staff, therapists and supervisors who work at the Parnes Clinic are required to know and practice professional guidelines related to confidentiality.

The Parnes Clinic offers a wide array of services for people of all ages. We also offer a number of specialized sub-clinics including the following:

(Availability of these services may vary based on the time of year, the number of therapists available and the varying needs for services within the community.)

Adult

  • Adult Psychodynamic Therapy
    Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a treatment that focuses on understanding a person’s character and life history in order to provide insight into his or her problems and improve overall level of functioning. Common difficulties addressed include depression, problems with self-esteem, relationship issues, post-traumatic stress and adjustment disorders, anxiety and bereavement.
  • Adult Cognitive Behavior Therapy
    Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a structured, problem-focused psychotherapy in which the therapist uses specific techniques to improve the client’s well-being and overall functioning. It focuses on thought patterns, feelings and behaviors that may be causing their difficulties. This treatment is effective for depression, general anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, agoraphobia and other specific phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress and other stress-related disorders.
  • Bariatric Assessment
    We provide pre-surgical psychological evaluations for patients undergoing bariatric surgery. The evaluations usually involve one or two visits to the clinic, after which the student therapist sends an evaluation to the patient's surgeon. If we recommend that the surgery should be delayed, we often offer short-term psychotherapy to help patients prepare for the behavioral changes required following the surgery.
  • Behavioral Medicine Sub-Clinic
    In our Behavioral Medicine sub-clinic, assistance is provided in the management of the psychological components of chronic illness and disability, in consultation with medical personnel. Psychotherapy is available for individuals experiencing stress, anxiety, or depression related to medical problems.
  • Career Counseling
    Master’s level Mental Health Counseling students offer “Strong Interest Inventory” testing and feedback to provide information that can help individuals make meaningful decisions about career choices and further education. This service is free to high school students and early college students.
  • Psychological Assessment (Adult)
    Psychological assessment is the process of using a number of sources of information such as an interview about a person’s history and current functioning, cognitive testing and personality measures to gain a better understanding of the individual’s cognitive and emotional functioning, including strengths and weaknesses. Psychological assessment can also help in selecting the most effective treatment planning options.
  • Weight Management Program:
    The Weight Management Program at the Parnes Clinic consists of psychology students and supervisors who have specific training in weight management and weight loss. The program offers individual and group therapy for patients who are struggling with weight problems and other related issues. We follow a cognitive behavioral treatment protocol that seeks to help individuals modify thoughts and behaviors in order to achieve more healthful eating habits and weight loss. This approach has been shown to be effective in helping individuals achieve weight loss goals, especially patients whose BMI (Body Mass Index) is between 30 and 40. While we use this outline for treatment, we also tailor each 45–50 minute session to the individual needs of each patient. Not sure if you are in need of weight management therapy? One way to check is by calculating your Body Mass Index. You can do so at the following link: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
  • Psychological Affidavits for Political Asylum Seekers
    The Parnes clinic has a program, which evaluates people who seeking political asylum and prepares psychological affidavits for their legal dossiers. We will work with both asylum seekers and their legal teams in order to help them prepare cases for hearings and trials. If you are interested in this service, please call our main number at 646.592.4397. 

Child/Adolescent

  • Child/Adolescent Cognitive Behavior Therapy
    Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is an active, solution-focused type of psychotherapy that is focused on teaching youth and their families skills to modify thinking patterns, reduce negative feelings and change behaviors. It is typically goal-oriented and strives to be time limited, though length of treatment is based on therapeutic gains, so treatment can be long term if needed. CBT is effective for a range of issues including general anxiety, social anxiety, school refusal, specific phobias, selective mutism, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, oppositional defiant disorder and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Children between the ages of 2 and 18 are seen within the CBT-Youth clinic. Treatment involves setting an agenda for sessions, building and coaching of child and parent skills, home practice of skills, and family collaboration to promote change. Client progress is monitored closely in order to tailor treatment to meet the individual needs of the child and family. 
  • Child/Adolescent Psychodynamic Therapy
    Psychodynamic psychotherapy for younger children, generally between 3 and 10, usually involves play therapy to help them explore and express their emotional worlds in order to take control of problematic behaviors. For older children and adolescents, talk therapy is used to provide understanding in order to enhance interpersonal relationships, emotional and behavioral control, and overall quality of life. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is effective in treating anxiety, depression, school problems, the aftermath of trauma, and family, interpersonal and behavioral problems. Support and guidance is also routinely provided for the parents and families of our child patients.
  • Psychoeducational Evaluation (Child)
    We offer a full range of psychological and psychoeducational evaluation services for children and adolescents, including academic, cognitive, neuropsychological and personality assessments. Evaluations cost $250, but we will work with families to ensure that our services are affordable for all who need them.

Older Adult

  • Older adults (age 60+)
    without cognitive impairment receive specialized services including gero-psychological diagnostic evaluation, consultation/referral and individual therapy. Common problems include depression, anxiety, difficulty coping with illness or loss, relationship conflicts and social isolation. We also offer support services for individuals who are caring for their older relatives. 

Family/Couples

  • Family and Couples Therapy practice
    The treatments provided by the Family and Couples Therapy practice at the Parnes Clinic focus on resolving problems related to interactions and relationships within couples and families. We help people with a wide variety of issues, including relationship building and rebuilding, adapting to marriage or remarriage, extended family concerns, coping with divorce, coping with life transitions, concerns about parenting and step-parenting, couple communication, family communication, marital and premarital issues, child behavior problems, child/teen fears and anxieties and sexual concerns.

Fees

Because we are a training clinic for doctoral students in psychology, we cannot accept health insurance. However, we set our fees using a sliding scale based on patients’ income. We are highly committed to providing quality psychological care to the community at affordable rates. Our fees generally range from $5–$40 for psychotherapy sessions, $250 or less for child psychoeducational assessments, and 350$ or less for child neuropsychological assessments. We will not turn anyone away from the Parnes Clinic due to financial limitations.
