The Center for Growth & Connection

Dr. Julie Hirschfeld, at The Center for Growth & Connection, provides skilled and compassionate therapy for individuals, couples, and families in New York, and online programs and coaching for parenting issues, life stage transitions, and personal growth across the US and globally.

Stress can be isolating, but you don’t have to handle it alone.

We can work together to improve your relationships, emotional life, and career. I offer warm, compassionate therapy and coaching for individuals, couples, and families, specializing in couple communication and young-adult, mid-life, and intergenerational issues.

I will help you cope with emotional distress or work demands, offering practical, research-based guidance suited to your unique needs and strengths. I lend support across the life span, from early career and dating issues, to empowering young parents and supporting empty-nesters considering their next act.

Clients develop greater ease with their authentic selves and skills to communicate and connect for lives of greater calm and fulfillment.

As co-author of “Business Dad: How Good Businessmen Can Make Great Fathers” (1998), I aid fathers and mothers in work-life balance, intimacy, teamwork, and parenting (raising readers, kid cooperation, etc.).

I am sensitive to the needs of women and men in our society; racial and cultural issues; and the significance of unique profiles (giftedness, health, sensory issues, etc.) in people’s lives. I support religious identity, observance, and exploration when relevant. I welcome the chance to accompany you in a collaboration based on warmth, safety, and trust.
