About Us:
New Paradigm Psychological Services (NPPS) is a forensic psychological practice that specializes in treating people who have committed sexual offenses or are struggling with sexual problems. We have a staff of licensed psychologists, licensed social workers, licensed mental health counselors, and qualified forensic interns and specialists. NPPS has a central office located in Albany, NY and satellite offices in Amsterdam, Glens Falls, Massena, Malone, and Plattsburgh, NY. We fully support diversity, inclusion, and equity. NPPS offers continued education in-house as well as opportunities for trainings given through the Office of Mental Health (OMH). The environment allows for clinical expression and growth in new areas that staff may be interested in (i.e., anger management, domestic violence). This extends to techniques used within the therapy room though we primarily utilize cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT), risk-need-responsivity (RNR), and motivational interviewing (MI) (i.e., trauma-informed, mindfulness).

We offer full psychosexual assessments with the most up to date, scientifically validated instruments and techniques in the field. We also provide:

  • Evaluations for the courts
  • Expert testimony
  • Psychological testing
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Anger management
  • Consultations
  • Trainings
  • Supervision
  • Research
