Professional statement

Anthony Cianci is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Midtown NYC. He specializes in working with children, adolescents, and adults and from a wide range of backgrounds as they navigate questions related to identity, relationships, and psychological well-being.

A major focus of Anthony's practice is in seeing individuals for long-term, insight-oriented therapy to address anxiety, depression, trauma and other difficulties in living. Anthony has a special interest in personal identity and the ways in which various aspects of personhood, such as race, gender and sexuality, influence experiences in relationships and the world at large. He also explores with clients the ongoing influence of intergenerational trauma on their upbringing, family relationships, and worldview.

With children, he utilizes a combination of talk and play therapy to help them better manage their feelings and behavior. He endorses a broad perspective to understanding ADHD and other behavioral diagnoses, considering the environmental factors that contribute to the manifestation of various symptoms.

Anthony is a certified psychoanalyst and utilizes psychoanalytic perspectives in effort to make meaning out of maladaptive patterns and formative life experiences. Anthony strives to create an open environment for clients to introspect and express themselves in new ways.

Message to clients

I believe that the central goal of all psychotherapy is to develop the ability to put into words our thoughts, feelings, memories and fantasies. I am attentive, supportive and encourage reflection on both past and present life experiences. I strive to create a environment that encourages openness and vulnerability and place high value in a strong, working therapeutic relationship. I strongly believe that psychotherapy offers the potential to better understand oneself in an effort towards healing, growth and change.
