Professional statement

Juliane Maxwald-Shrey is a Licensed Psychoanalyst with offices in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle and Long Island City, Queens. Her practice serves a wide range of individuals, couples, and families, providing individual psychotherapy, addiction treatment, couples & family counseling, and sex therapy. With over 15 years of experience, Juliane offers an individualized approach to the challenges of anxiety, depression, relationships and intimacy, substance use and compulsive behaviors, and trauma recovery.

Alongside her general psychotherapy practice, Juliane is a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor. She specializes in supporting individuals with challenges related to substance use and abuse, as well as behavioral and sex addictions, and helps clients navigate the emotional up and downs of having a loved one impacted by addiction. Together, Juliane helps clients to explore their relationships to substances, including traumatic events in early life, and over time, replace their reliance on substances with healthier coping strategies.

Juliane also welcomes couples to her practice. In session, couples might address communication problems, emotional distancing, infidelity, and parenting differences. Juliane has additional training in sex therapy, and can help couples examine discrepancies in sex drive, increase intimacy, and navigate sexual dysfunction.

Juliane has over 15 years of experience working with individuals, couples, groups, and families. Her approach is rooted in psychoanalysis, and she also draws from skill-based approaches in order to help clients change behaviors and understand the underlying thought patterns. She provides highly individualized care and prioritizes establishing a safe, comfortable, and welcoming space for clients to talk about their inner life.

In addition to her private practice, Juliane also serves on the faculty at Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies and New York Graduate School of Psychoanalysis. She received her Master’s degree from the New York Graduate School of Psychoanalysis and New York University.

Message to clients

I am a Licensed Psychoanalyst and Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor with over 15 years of experience working with individuals, couples, groups and families. I currently serve on the faculty at CMPS and NYGSP. I believe that each person's therapy is a unique process and is best implemented through an individualized approach. My goal is to establish an accepting and comfortable space for you to talk about and explore your concerns. To this extent, I work towards understanding the complexities of who you are as a person and the issues that you are struggling with.
In addition to my analytic training, I've also received extensive training in addiction treatment, couples/marriage counseling and sex therapy. I work comfortably with a wide range of treatment models.
I treat a variety of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship problems, infertility, parenting issues, traumatic experiences and more. In addition to individual therapy, I provide couples/marriage counseling, sex therapy, and family therapy.
