Alexandra Cattaruzza is a Licensed Psychoanalyst with offices in Manhattan’s Flatiron district and Dumbo, Brooklyn. She specializes in working with adults in their 20s & 30s, particularly women, during times of stress and change, when their relationships, sense of self, and roles at work and home may be tested. Her practice focuses on raising awareness of unconscious patterns that limit her patients’ ability to connect to themselves and others. By gaining new insight, Alexandra empowers her patients to regain control over complex emotions and take decisive actions that move them towards the life they desire.
In addition to her work with patients experiencing general anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges, Alexandra also has a special interest in supporting pregnant women and new parents. Having received extensive experience in a parent-infant psychoanalytic training program, she is passionate about helping patients balance mood challenges and find a renewed connection with their infant and their inner self.
Supportive and nonjudgmental, Alexandra is deeply committed to helping her patients understand and overcome the obstacles that hold them back. Having completed parts of her training in South America and Europe, Alexandra is sensitive to the impact of culture on identity and well-being, and is dedicated to maintaining an inclusive practice. She welcomes new patients at both office locations, accessible from the York Street and 28th St subway stations
