The Village Institute

Because of the COVID-19 crisis we recognize the need for this essential mental health service and have established a HIPAA compliant, private and secure system to meet the teletherapy needs of all of our current and future clients. Getting Started is Easy. Contact us now and a member of our intake staff will discuss your needs with you. Then you will be assigned a therapist that best fits your needs. 

As the owners of The Village Institute for Psychotherapy, we are humbled and grateful for the opportunity to lead this organization forward into another 25 years of creating lasting change. It is our goal to be the best, most dynamic, responsive and expert psychotherapy group practice in the world.

The Village Institute for Psychotherapy was established in 1994 by its founder Dr. Frederick Woolverton, who understood that therapy, when it is active, collaborative and deep, can be life-changing. Throughout the years, TVI has grown to be an APA accredited training site and Dr. Woolverton’s approach is core to our therapy style. Besides a strong team of seasoned psychotherapists, we train some of the best and brightest up and coming psychologists and psychotherapists in NYC. As the new owners, we are so excited to continue and to grow this way of working with clients, therapists and with the community at large.

We provide Individual, Couples and Family Therapy and also Group Psychotherapy. We also provide teletherapy through the Simple Practice HIPAA compliant teletherapy system. This method has bank level security, all communications are encrypted and nothing is recorded. Completely private psychotherapy in the privacy of your own home.

Finding a good psychotherapist can be emotionally exhausting and time consuming. We take it very seriously that you are entrusting us with key/critical aspects of your life. That is why it is our goal to provide a team of psychologists & psychotherapists from diverse backgrounds who constantly grow and challenge one another to be the best at what they do. At The Village Institute our team is constantly studying the most effective ideas and research to improve their skills as clinicians.

What does this mean for you? It means that our goal is not just that you have a great therapist, but that you have a therapist that is great for you. At The Village Institute, you won’t have a therapist that gets stagnant and has nothing more to offer – because we are a community that constantly pushes one another to learn and to grow.

We encourage you to access our resources page for more information on our blog, podcast and for some other great up-to-date psychotherapy resources. We are here to provide you with everything you need to create lasting change that will resonate with you in your life.

Thank you for reading our message! We look forward to the next 25 years.
