Nora Reiner Gluck, LCSW
I am psychotherapist with 45 years of experience with individuals, couples, families and groups. My background includes a variety of therapies, including family systems, family of origin, couple therapy (Bowenian, Imago, PAIRS, and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy) and energy psychology (EMDR, EFT, TFT, EFTA, TAT) and yoga and meditation, which integrate mind and body from a holistic perspective.
I have been a member of AFTA (American Family Therapy Academy) since it was founded in 1978 and served as a clinical supervisor for the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy for twenty-five years as well as teaching and supervising at the Yale University School of Medicine and family therapy institutes.
Yoga has been important to me for many years, and I am a certified Amrit Yoga teacher and have practiced Kripalu yoga for over 30 years. These practices, designed to relax the body and calm the mind, can be used along with psychotherapy to improve the mood, enhance self-esteem, promote self-acceptance and develop the practice of self-observation with non-judgmental awareness. I have been trained by Amy Weintraub in LifeForce Yoga for Depression and Anxiety
For 22 years I was an Assistant Professor of Social Work in Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine where I taught, supervised and trained psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers in individual and marital and family therapy for over twenty years. I was also on the staff and faculty of the Center for Family Learning and the Family Institute of Westchester, and adjunct faculty in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at the University of Bridgeport.
Mark Curri, MA, LMFT
I am a psychotherapist with thirty years of experience in working with individuals, couples, families and groups. I believe that a relationship of trust between therapist and patient is the key to successful therapy. People need to feel seen, heard, understood and respected in order to allow the trust and depth that is necessary for real change to occur. I am deeply committed to helping clients identify and move toward achieving their goals and manifesting their dreams.
I am able to adapt to a wide variety of therapeutic challenges and my practice includes many different kinds of clients. I strongly believes in human potential and the possibility of change, and know the importance of identifying the underlying issues that tend to block real change. My methods include systemic, cognitive/behavioral and mind/body approaches, such as EMDR, TFT, EFT, TAT and other powerful energy healing techniques such as mindfulness meditation. I specialize in couple therapy, spiritual/metaphysical development, anxiety, depression phobias, and addictions. I so therapy that includes separation and divorce, parenting issues, and I see children and adolescents with their families. I am a Clinical Member of the American Association of Marital and Family Therapy. I’ve been meditating for over thirty years and have a deep understanding of how thoughts and beliefs affect the physical body as well as psychological well-being. I have a passion for teaching clients various approaches to self-development, including personality integration and meditation practices and I am committed to taking each person’s ideas and incorporating them into their psychotherapy.
I am experienced in both Transcendental Meditation and Buddhist meditation and I love creating innovative ways of integrating alternative techniques with more traditional psychotherapeutic approaches to promote healing.
In addition to the above I like working with a variety of situations, e.g., seniors who may have health issues or the other challenges associated with the aging process. If necessary I am willing to do home visits. Another area I am especially interested in is the metaphysical, spiritual or existential dilemmas that can occur at any time but are particularly likely in our current social-political environment.
