Counseling for Lawyers - Dr. Peter Lobl, PhD, JD New York,NY Personality Disorders
What We Do!
Dr. Peter Lobl is a licensed clinical psychologist in NY who specializes in couples counseling, personality disorders and self-esteem issues. Welcome. If you are at my website, chances are something about your life does not feel right – either with a relationship, or with your experience of yourself, or with the direction you see yourself heading. If you are reading this, it hopefully also means that some part of you believes change is possible. I am a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Midtown Manhattan. I primarily work with adults and couples who experience recurring and distressing relationship problems either at work or at home. I also treat mood, anxiety, and personality disorders and work with patients on issues related to self esteem and anger management. Through therapy, I’ve seen people go from a place of emotional pain to a place where there was gradually more and more hope. I’ve worked with patients who felt adrift and uncertain about themselves, and who through therapy, ended up feeling more solid, more real, and more fully themselves. And I’ve worked with couples who couldn’t connect and who were angrily and dismissively talking at each other and past each other, and who ended up developing genuine closeness through couples counseling.

As part of his practice, Dr. Lobl works often with patients facing issues of cross cultural assimilation and acculturation. Dr. Lobl has lived and worked in different cultures and is fluent in French. His doctoral dissertation concerned the impact of wives’ relative income on marital closeness across different cultural contexts. For the research on his dissertation, Dr. Lobl collected data from married women and men living in the U.S., Vietnam, and France. The results of this study showed that culture has a significant effect on marital closeness.
