Professional statement

Jonathan Schnapp is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at Affinity Psychotherapy in Midtown Manhattan. His practice focuses on self-exploration and helping clients better understand themselves in order to effectively pursue their goals. Many of Jonathan's clients come to his office when they are experiencing depression, anxiety, and relationship challenges, and he supports them to recognize the past events and underlying beliefs that shape their views of themselves and the world.

Jonathan values exploring the full possibility of each individual's identity: who they are, what their goals are, and how the ways in which they see themselves may self-limiting. While his training is rooted in psychoanalysis, his approach is flexibility tailored to each client's unique challenges, patterns, and goals. He focuses on tapping into his clients' inner strengths and resiliencies, and collaboratively celebrates each success.

Jonathan completed his training at The Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Therapy (MITPP) and received his Master’s in Social Work from the Fordham Graduate School of Social Services. His private practice is conveniently located near Grand Central Station, and is open to individual psychotherapy for adults of all ages.
