Tania Guimaraes is a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist working in New York since the early 90's. She works with individual adults and couples of diverse identity. Ms. Guimaraes blends a psychodynamic approach with Cognitive Behavior Therapy. She works collaboratively with patients to promote growth and development. Ms. Guimaraes holds the principle that every patient and couples want to achieve a feeling of being genuine with themselves and others. Her work with patients consist in recognizing that sometimes some responses do not yield the desired result. She supports a journey of self discovery where patients become able to sort entangled emotional and psychological cognitive processes, that were once useful, but became impediments. Ms. Guimaraes works with each individual to develop their own and unique feeling of self integration and wholeness, as well as their place in the world they help to create.
Ms. Guimaraes is a trained Psychoanalyst who is also certified in Cognitive Behavior Therapy. She blends experiences from both. In addition Ms. Guimaraes has acquired knowledge and practice in numerous other modalities, some now integrated in her practice. Ms. Guimaraes supervises training Psychoanalysts and Clinical Social Workers.
