Professional statement

Dr. Anita Madan is a Clinical Psychologist in New York City who specializes in identity and existential concerns, anxiety and depression, relationship and career issues, and trauma.

Dr. Madan often sees clients who are struggling with the impact of major life events including recent or past traumas, life stage transitions (emerging adulthood, new parenthood, mid and late-life crises), relationship and career changes, and loss. Her passion is in helping people address how these kinds of major life events call into question one’s prior way of being in the world and present opportunities for growth.

Dr Madan’s approach to treatment is holistic and grounded in a mind-body perspective that emphasizes developing and deepening one’s awareness and experience of oneself. She strives to help clients connect with their bodies in order to feel more centered and empowered in their present-day realities. 

Dr. Madan enjoys supporting clients as they reconnect with who they are and embrace a greater sense of self-acceptance and peace.  She looks forward to connecting with you at her practice, located in Midtown South.

Message to clients

Perhaps you are here because you are wanting something more in life, you question if you are on a path that reflects who you truly are, and you want to live more in alignment with that person you sense yourself to be.  At times it might feel like life is driving you, and you yearn to experience your life from the driver’s seat. You just don’t know how to get there. The clients who I see come to me with a wide range of challenges, struggles, and life circumstances.  Difficulties and distressing circumstances are a part of life for everyone.  I strive to help people go beyond adapting to the demands of their busy lives, to living a life that feels more vital and alive, and with less conflict and suffering. I look forward to hearing from you and exploring our potential to work together.
