At Wallace Family Therapy in Nyack, NY, our work is guided and informed by the words of a famous American diarist. “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Life is all about experience and relationships of one sort or another that affect different individuals, and the company they keep, in different ways, and for different reasons.
For that reason, we offer an eclectic array of psychotherapeutic treatment modalities — because not every one comes to blossom, the pain or discomfort of growth and change, in quite the same way or time.
We consider our services to be the building of “stepping stones” out of stumbling blocks, for helping people move forward in their lives.

Professor Hudson Inurlap
Hudson is a “person whisperer” with a profound sensitivity and responsiveness to the full range of human emotions — skills he developed after a stubbornly prolonged period of housebreaking. He provides “paws-on” support by absorbing boundless anxiety to help regulate emotions in the moment and promote mindfulness for others simply by touch and petting.
Hudson keeps irregular office hours, but is generally available upon request and offers his services for free.
Professor Inurlap splits his time between Nyack and a weekend place, where his principal activities include sleeping, eating, chasing and losing lots of tennis balls in a nearby swimming hole, and combating the herding instincts of his bossy sister, a German Shepherd.
