The Center for Creative Counseling


Hello, My name is Garrett Coan and I am a licensed psychotherapist. The Center for Creative Counseling is the name of my NYC area private practice which I maintained over the last 15 years. I coined the name "The Center for Creative Counseling" because I utilize an eclectic and customized mix of therapeutic modalities (cognitive/behavioral, insight-oriented, and systems) to help my clients become more effective in coping with life's stressors and lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives. During my years in practice as a pyschotherapist and coach, I have helped thousands of people master their issues and take control of their lives. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, panic disorder, perfectionism, depression, inability to forgive, or relationship issues, I will give you the tools you need to overcome your challenges and become a happier, more actualiized human being. I offer coaching or therapy by Skype for those clients who live at distance from my NYC area office (read below). For any questions or to arrange an initial consultation, please click the "Contact" button on the side of the page. 

Therapy and coaching by Skype can be a wonderful alternative to in-office visits for busy professionals or for individuals who live too far from Mr. Coan's NYC area office.  He understands that sometimes Skype therapy or coaching is a better option for people who require the added convenience and flexibility that only videoconferencing can offer.

Coaching or therapy by Skype is for people who are:

1) Very busy: Therapy or coaching by Skype enables clients to save time and money commuting to Garrett's office.

2) Ability to stay focused: If you have a session over Skype, you will need to be able to tune out distractions and focus on your session with Garrett.

3) Possess a private and confidential space: If you are interested in therapy or coaching over Skype, you will need to possess a quiet and confidential space where you will not be interrupted by others.

Coaching and therapy by Skype is a viable alternative to office visits for those people who are concerned about lack of confidentiality (i.e., bumping into a friend or acquaintance in the waiting room). Also, many people who live in areas that lack expert therapists or coaches are now able to work with highly skilled professionals now that Skype exists.

If you would like to pursue therapy or coaching by Skype, please contact Garrett to find out more about scheduling a session.  Click the "Contact" button on the side of the page to send a message to Garrett.
