Greenpoint Psychiatric Services is a comprehensive mental health clinic located right in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, providing a full range of therapeutic services to individuals, couples and families.

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.

All of us have family friends or neighbors who are not doing as well as they would like. They may feel depressed or anxious. They may be bothered by nagging physical problems. They may be dissatisfied with their relationships. They may feel helpless to control unhealthy habits...

Or they may simply feel stuck and confused about how to define their goals and reach them.

At Greenpoint Psychiatric Services we offer a wide range of modern psychotherapeutic techniques. We aim to identify problems clearly and to offer brief, effective treatments. Although each person is unique, most treatment plans range from five to twenty sessions and can be accomplished in two to four months.

Many people have false ideas about the cost, length and effectiveness of specialty mental health treatment. Don’t let misconceptions stop you or those who count on you from seeking the specialized help that could help to get beyond life’s roadblocks.

Call Greenpoint Psychiatric Services today at (718) 383-3493, visit us on the web at or stop by our offices at 861 Manhattan Avenue. Your peace of mind will thank you.
