Professional statement

Jonathan J. Detrixhe, Ph.D., MFA, is a licensed clinical psychologist with private practices in Greenpoint and Soho. He works with a variety of people whose active, creative lives have been interrupted by depression, mania, anxiety, mourning, and trauma. He also work with many artists and computer engineers who struggle with the demands of those professions, particularly attention, focus, and procrastination. All ethnicities, genders, and orientations are welcome. He can also be helpful to people going through a gender transition.

Jon's training began in 2005 at Bellevue’s Psychiatric Emergency Room and continued at renowned New York City hospitals and institutions. He has been in private practice in Brooklyn since 2011. Also, he was an adjunct professor in a clinical Ph.D. program for many years and supervised trainees at two college clinics and psychiatry residents at Mt. Sinai Hospital. His publications are in the areas of loneliness, personality disorders, and art.

Jon's Brooklyn office is located in the PencilWorks Building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The address is 61 Greenpoint Ave, Ste. 402, Brooklyn NY 11222. His Manhattan office address is 177 Prince St, Ste. 403, New York NY 10012.

Jon is in-network with Mount Sinai Employee UMR Top Tier insurance. Otherwise, he is not in-network with insurance companies, so his patients pay him out-of-pocket. However, if your health insurance includes out-of-network benefits, you may be reimbursed for all or part of my fee. He will provide an invoice with the necessary information for you to submit to your insurance company. If you would like to use your insurance, please confirm with your insurance company that your behavioral health plan provides out-of-network coverage.


Message to clients

I think mental health means developing a Full Self – a progressive version of you that can love hard and work hard, understand complex motivations, and experience feelings, including painful ones, without being overwhelmed. In this process, I draw from extensive, ongoing training in both psychodynamics and cognitive-behavioral work.

When it comes to finding a therapist, I think you're looking for a “match,” meaning someone who practices psychotherapy in a way that sounds beneficial and intriguing, who listens and understands you, and who inspires you to work hard, be vulnerable, and make changes. Also, it doesn’t hurt if you find your therapist at least a little bit funny, interesting, exciting. Psychotherapy is a time consuming, emotionally demanding, expensive process, but it doesn’t have to be a miserable slog. If you find the right therapist, psychotherapy can also sometimes be—dare I say it?—fun.

People often ask me, Can people really change? The answer is yes, absolutely. I see it all the time. You can change, in ascending order of difficulty, your thoughts, beliefs, emotions, behaviors, and personality. Making these changes within yourself will encourage you to make changes in the world around you: in your romantic and familial relationships, work, hobbies, creative endeavors, and maybe even on larger scale social or political issues. Changing yourself may also allow you to better accept aspects of life that do not change, like past mistakes, illness, loss, tragedy, and mortality.
