How We Will Support You

Goal Oriented Therapy

GTS practices an integrative and didactic approach to therapy that includes many techniques from the following well- respected orientations: Cognitive/Behavioral (CBT), Gestalt, Freudian, Dialectical Behavioral (DBT), Humanistic, Imago Relationship Therapy and Coaching.

Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling

Figuring out what’s really going on in your relationship should be simple, but it’s not. Problems don’t just suddenly appear — they grow slowly over time, the product of small resentments and miscommunications that grow into a thick web that’s very difficult to untangle on your own. That’s where talking to the right professional can really help.

Career & Leadership Coaching

Many people have given up seemingly secure banking, government jobs etc and have opted for software jobs, creative jobs and even freelance options. All you need then is a bit of courage; a dash of self-belief and some clarity of thought and you can join the band of people who have successfully changed careers.

Family Planning

One of the most exciting times in one’s life is becoming a parent. Very few people go throughout life without some thought about what it would be like to raise a child. GTS helps an individual or couple explore what it means to become a parent. We also help understand conventional, adoption and various fertility options to having a child.

Mediation

Divorce mediation and custody mediation typically consists of several joint meetings between spouses (or partners if you are not married). During those meetings, you and your spouse discuss the issues that need to be resolved in your case. Contact Gateway to Solution’s New York office today to schedule your consultation!

See What GTS Clients Say

  • Antoinette is one of the most wonderful, and amazing women I have ever had the pleasure of speaking with. She is cheery, accountable, and brilliant. She led the therapy space with a presence that never felt overbearing or judgmental, she was always honest with me and inspired a level of accountability within myself and my past that I greatly needed. She cracked jokes where appropriate to lighten the mood, she would tell me personal stories so that I never felt alone with what I was going through. She would even remember the little details that I was sure she'd forget, but never did.

  • My experience with Gateway to Solutions has been nothing short of exemplary. John has created such a safe environment for me to explore and express my goals and emotions, along with Caroline and Antionette who have been there to support me when needed. I cannot speak highly enough when reflecting back on my journey with this practice.

    J.D.
  • I have seen several therapists in my lifetime, but after seeing John for over 6 years I can say without a doubt that John and his team are by far the most professional, caring, and knowledgeable people I have ever interacted with!

    J.M.
  • My experience at Gateway to Solutions has been nothing short of wonderful. Not only has my therapy been incredibly effective and fitting to my particular needs, but the team has been patient, understanding, and kind with me–including when it comes to financial concerns. Christina Bradley is by far the best therapist I've ever worked with, and I have made so much progress under her attentive care and guidance. She has been incredibly adaptive to my unique identity, and her holistic approach to therapy has left me in a better place than I have been in years. I strongly recommend pursuing your mental health journey at GTS!”

    S.N.W.
  • John and the entire GTS team has played an integral role in my trauma recovery over the past four years. The road to finding the "right" therapist can be daunting, but from the moment I spoke to John on the phone, I knew I was in good hands. Every person that I have referred (and there have been many!) has had nothing but positive experiences. I am so grateful to have found GTS, I truly don't know where I would be today without them.
