Professional statement

Charles Rosen is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychoanalyst on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He specializes in providing insight-oriented therapy to clients across the lifespan, including young professionals, artists, and older adults. Charles brings a background in medical social work to his private practice, giving him special knowledge of the emotional toll of chronic pain and medical illnesses and their influence on a client's sense of self.

Clients often come to Charles's office when they are struggling with anxiety, depression, work or relationship challenges. He typically provides longer-term therapy to clients who are interested in gaining a deep understanding of how their mind works and how past experiences contribute to current thought patterns. Charles is dedicated to meeting each client where they are at and uses his 30 years of clinical experience to tailor his approach to the individual, offering a productive and interactive space for self-reflection.

Outside of private practice, Charles is also highly involved in a major psychoanalytic institute in the city, including teaching and supervising other clinicians. His office is accessible by the 79th Street subway station.
