    Welcome to Behavioral Associates

    Serving New York City since 1988

    We specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) alone or in combination with medication free treatments like Biofeedback, Neurofeedback, Virtual Reality Therapy (VRT) and QEEG assessment. While we provide individual, couples, family and group therapy for adults, our dedicated Children’s Center is here to diagnose and treat mental health challenges in children and teens.

     As innovators in mental health technology, we make it a priority to stay current in a rapidly evolving field. This allows us to provide the most effective treatments and diagnostic tools that are organic and without side effects.

    Dr. Robert Reiner, PhD, Executive Director and founder of Behavioral Associates, generally meets with every new patient for their initial consultation to assess personal needs and match them with an appropriate therapist from our staff. In the case of children and teens, the parent and/or guardian first meets with Dr. Heather Davidson, Director of the Children’s Center. This “team” approach, evolved and coordinated for close to thirty years, has proven to provide treatment protocols that benefit our patients as efficiently as possible.

    Same and next day appointments available Monday through Thursday.

    What Patients Are Saying

    I was dealing with a bad nervous breakdown and felt like I was lost with no hope until I found Behavioral Associates. From day one Dr.Reiner and his staff made me feel welcomed and safe. The therapeutic sessions, tools and friendly environment helped me to overcome my depression and anxiety and I am in such a better place now. I still have monthly sessions and at each session I learn something new in dealing with day to day life events that produce stress and anxiety. I am so grateful and thankful.

    Debra Harmon

    This is a great office with many highly qualified therapists and social workers on staff. Even the office staff are awesome and personable. You meet with the head of the office for an assessment and then he matches you with one of his staff that he believes will be the best fit. And he was spot on with me and my therapist has been a dream for the past two years. I’m so grateful for this office and everyone that works here. Easy to get to location with lots of great businesses around so I can have my session and get errands done. Really fantastic – highly recommend!

    Michael B.

    I’m very pleased with my decision to meet with Dr. Reiner, and am looking forward to my future sessions. During our discussion, I felt like he listened without judgment, and asked questions that did not feel like they were leading me to a specific conclusion. Overall, he just put me at ease. As someone who has struggled to find the right fit therapist-wise, I’m finally hopeful that I’ve found someone that can help. Even just leaving the appointment, I felt as though a weight (albeit small) had been lifted off my shoulders. We’ll see how future sessions go, but if you’ve been debating whether or not to seek professional help or are interested in seeing someone new – I recommend giving Dr. Reiner’s office a shot.

    Dr. Reiner was professional, kind, and it is clear that he is an expert in his field. It can be very difficult finding a good mental health professional and I am so glad I finally found the right one for me. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone suffering from anxiety disorders seeking CBT therapy

    Children’s Center

    Our Children’s Center is dedicated to providing compassionate, effective and comprehensive care for each child, teen and family that walks through our door. Our goal is to provide an environment where children and their families are given the support and care needed to thrive and make positive changes.


    Neuropsychological Testing

    A psychological assessment “battery” consists of several tests designed to evaluate a multitude of aspects of an individual’s functioning. This is all based on the referral question. At Behavioral Associates, a typical psychological assessment includes an intelligence (or cognitive) test, an achievement test, a projective or personality test and a qEEG brain scan.
