Nancy Goldman is a Certified Psychoanalyst with offices in Manhattan and Montclair, New Jersey who specializes in anxiety, depression, infertility topics, adoption, and perinatal mental health.
She often works with clients who are facing a major life transition – such as a romantic breakup, or losing their job – and are experiencing elevated levels of stress related to the shift. They may be having panic attacks, or finding themselves ruminating more than usual. Nancy helps clients look underneath the surface of their anxiety to understand the root of the issue on a deeper, interconnected level. She uses mainly an open-ended, insight oriented, and psychoanalytic approach. Throughout treatment, Nancy works with clients towards fostering greater self-compassion, helping patients reconnect to their inner strengths and constructive forces.
When working with new and expecting parents, Nancy helps them work through stressors related to their family growth, including pressure about being a first-time mom, mixed feelings about pregnancy, and partners who are on different pages about raising a family.
Nancy cares deeply about helping each of her clients move to a point where they feel less conflicted in their lives, and where their esteem – either for themselves, others, or both – has grown. She has over 25 years of clinical experience, and has also been a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at The American Institute of Psychoanalysis for 15 years, where she teaches and supervises psychotherapists and future psychoanalysts.
Nancy is accepting clients in both her Montclair and Soho practice, the latter of which is conveniently located near many major subway lines. She looks forward to meeting you.
