Dr. Jay Soucy is a clinical psychologist in Providence, RI who helps students, artists, athletes, academics, and other high-level performers.
He specializes in healing trauma, anxiety, creative and performance blocks, existential and relationship issues, and the impacts of social forces on mental health. He tends to fit well with patients who are curious, creative, funny, introspective, and ready for change. He also believes that psychotherapy need not be a rarefied, exclusively serious space. Lightness, fun, and a genuine connection are just as important as the more vulnerable work we do.
Dr. Jay's clinical lens is grounded in behavioral and mindfulness-based therapies including Schema Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, contemporary psychoanalytic approaches, and decolonization, feminist, Marxist, and queer theories. He values understanding and healing the impact of the past, using those insights and increased health to make active changes in the present, and working together to build a different future.
Dr. Jay has been Part-Time Faculty at Boston College and President of the Massachusetts Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology. His teaching and academic writing have centered on what acting and improvisational technique have to offer psychotherapeutic technique, the relationship between psychoanalysis and social justice, and doctoring in psychotherapy for clinicians in training.
