Dr. Michael Mongno is a Licensed Psychoanalyst who welcomes individuals across the lifespan to his practice in New York City. He is skilled at helping clients navigate a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, and general life transitions. Dr. Mongno is also an expert in the field of couples counseling, and welcomes clients on both an individual and couple basis for relationship concerns.
Dr. Mongno understands that many emotional issues stem from disconnection and under-satisfying relationships with others. He patiently works to create new positive, corrective experience with his clients; in doing so, he helps them improve their interpersonal relationships, enhance intimacy, and contribute to a broader sense of overall well-being.
Throughout his many years as a therapist, Dr. Mongno has learned to calibrate and synthesize "what works" for clients in his practice. His effective, multi-dimensional approach to personal growth and relationship healing integrates components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Meditation and Mindfulness, Imago, and Emotionally Focused Couples (EFT) therapy.
Dr. Mongno has also completed extensive training with internationally-renowned figures in the world of couples counseling. He's worked with Harville Hendrix ("Getting the Love You Want), Dr. David Schnarch ("Passionate Marriage"), Sue Johnson ("Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy"), Esther Perel ("Mating in Captivity"), and Marty Klein, ("Sexual Intelligence: What We Really Want from Sex and How to Get It").
