General Information:

My psychotherapy services are generally $250 per 50-minute session. The session is done through the web or by phone using Zoom or Skype. I also offer in-person sessions in my Manhattan office in New York City. I do accept most insurance plans as an out-of-network provider so you could be reimbursed by your insurance company for mental health benefits. Only individual therapy for NY State residents may be covered with in network insurance.  When you contact me, we can discuss how to find out about your insurance benefits. I have a billing lady who can send in your out-of-network insurance claims for you for $4 a session if you’d rather not deal with the paperwork yourself.  If insurance does not cover your sessions, you pay out of pocket via credit card.


My Manhattan psychotherapy office is located at 225 West 34th Street, 9th Floor NY, NY. I can give you directions and the suite number when we make an appointment.

Dr. Sherman is a Certified Discernment counselor with specialized training for confused couples who are not sure how to move forward. Discernment counseling is 1-5 sessions for couples considering divorce or separation, to help them offer clarity and confidence around what got you to this point in your relationship and what direction to take. There are three paths:

1-do not pursue divorce or couples therapy
2- pursue divorce or separation
3- Full out six-month effort at couples therapy, putting divorce off the table

If you end up sure that you wish to divorce, we can assist you in making it the best possible divorce, offering a, ‘Family First,’ approach to the ups and downs of the divorce process. If you have children, we can help you do well by them, so hopefully you do not overreact to your spouse or behave badly towards them. If your spouse is not interested in Discernment Counseling then you still have a lot of work you can do on yourself to improve your marriage.

Premarital Counseling:   Each 1 hour-long session is $250

Going into a marriage is a threshold experience and a lifetime commitment. It pays to have state of the art relationship tools to prepare you for this journey. You can learn tools for compromise, addressing conflict, discussing a shared vision and more, often in under 10 sessions.
