Therapist in Brooklyn, New York Harris (Hal) Pollack, LCSW

Harris (Hal) Pollack, LCSW

Hal was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, studied literature and creative writing in college, and, upon moving to New York, worked as a high school teacher for three years as a member of the NYC Teaching Fellows prior to pursuing his MSW at Hunter College’s Silberman School of Social Work. Having been drawn to the work of therapy by his longstanding interest, and belief, in the power of language and relationship as means of healing and growth, Hal has sought in his ten plus years as a therapist to ever more mindfully facilitate an atmosphere of openness and hopefulness in each session and with each client. Hal does not subscribe to one particular school of thought or method of treatment when it comes to his clinical approach, but he is guided by values that might be identified with relational, client-centered, and humanistic therapies. Believing strongly that the quality of a therapist’s relationship with a client plays a determining role in the process and outcome of therapy, he strives to be acutely and yet gently attuned to each client’s needs, wishes and goals while also striving to be authentically himself, meeting each client ˜where they’re at’ with sincere curiosity and strengths-focused positive regard.
