Professional Statement

  • William E. Hapworth M.D. and the staff at the Hapworth Center have been delivering mental health services to New Yorkers for over 27 years.
  • We believe in doing no harm to our clients and in that regard we do not prescribe addictive drugs like Benzodiazepines or Amphetamines.
  • We have been honored to help our clients resolve problems as complex as Bipolar Disorder to as commonplace as relationship problems. We are dedicated to meeting you on an equal footing and addressing your issues with an enthusiastic and cooperative approach. We are experts with medication but believe that many emotional problems can be resolved without medication by using psychotherapy and life style changes such as exercise, nutritional adjustments and weight loss. Additionally, clients must realize that using drugs or alcohol to self medicate is a flawed formula and we stand ready to help you learn to live your life substance free.
  • We strongly believe in the benefits of rewiring your brain through psychotherapy. Medication can alleviate acute stress symptoms but it is only through therapy that long lasting change can be achieved.
