"A superb book by a superb clinician. This book has what so many books on this subject lack: the honesty and truth that can only be gained by working in the trenches of real life. What you'll get from this book are nuggets you can really use in your everyday life, as well as hope and confidence you can feed on day in and day out. Dr. Kerson has worked a lifetime to write this book, and his life's work now becomes a precious gift to us all.” - Edward Hallowell, M.D., leading authority on ADHD
Until we opened our doors in 1988, there were no mental health services available in the Greenpoint/ Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
Since we opened, we have helped hundreds of our neighbors ﬁnd concrete, practical solutions to their individual mental health challenges.
Our novel approach allows for a rapid, thorough and effective approach to a wide range of modern problems.
There is generally a wait of at least two weeks to see Dr. Kerson. Patients can, however, request an urgent appointment.Dr. Kerson will generally contact you the Friday or Saturday after you get in touch, and will be booking for the week after that or later.
He works Mondays and Thursdays in Greenpoint, and Tuesdays and Wednesdays in Manhattan.
The insurance we accept is Aetna, Cigna, BlueCross/BlueShield, Emblem or Value Options. We also accept direct payment from patients.
Dr. Don Kerson is a foremost authority on the treatment of ADD, depression and trauma. For 25 years, he has been treating hyperactive adults whose condition is complicated by other psychiatric conditions. He has developed a uniquely effective, comprehensive program for addressing the needs of adults suffering from ADD and the complicated array of unipolar and bi-polar depressions that so often co-exist with attentional difficulties.
He treats clients at his offices in Manhattan and at Greenpoint Psychiatric Services, the clinic he founded in Brooklyn, N.Y. Previously, he was medical director of the Long Island Consultation Center, a leading mental health and substance abuse clinic in New York.
In addition to his ongoing medication and therapy practice, Dr. Kerson also frequently writes and speaks as an expert in the field. His book, Getting Unstuck: Unraveling the Knot of Depression, Attention, and Trauma, presents the understandings and techniques gathered over his broad clinical experience.
