Lisa DeBenedittis is a Licensed Psychoanalyst with offices in Midtown, Manhattan and on Long Island. She specializes in working with individuals who are interested in doing depth work, toward living fuller and more meaningful lives. She also works with patients who are themselves devoted to caring for the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of others (e.g. life coaches, clergy, yoga practitioners, therapists), as well as those who are creative practitioners and performers.
Lisa’s approach is analytically informed, and therefore believes that understanding the outer as well as the inner life (dreams, fantasies, creative practices) is essential to treating the whole person. As a Jungian, she values the spiritual, creative and symbolic nature, and uses various techniques such as mindfulness, breathwork, and clinical hypnosis to support talk therapy. She helps her patients better understand themselves, and take active steps toward living a more fulfilling life. When necessary and appropriate, she will take a team-centered approach: working with physicians, psychiatrists, and registered dietitians to ensure a client is reaching his/her particular goals.
Lisa DeBenedittis trained at New York’s Jungian Psychoanalytic Association, where she is Director of Training, and is registered as a psychoanalyst with the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis (NAAP). Lisa values sensitivity, care and a strong ethical orientation in her clinical practice. She looks forward to meeting you.
