Professional statement

Tanya Leach is a Licensed Psychoanalyst in New York, NY. Tanya provides a therapeutic space for individuals to better understand the root causes of their sadness, depression, frustrations, loneliness, helplessness, or anxiety. Tanya also works with couples who have conflict in their relationship to repair trust and intimacy.

Tanya completed the four-year training program in psychoanalysis and comprehensive psychotherapy through the National Institute for Psychotherapies, where she studied the psychoanalytic approach. This approach examines the ways that unconscious thoughts and feelings manifest as conflict in a person’s daily life. Tanya provides a safe environment for her clients to explore their memories, thoughts, feelings, desires, and beliefs. Tanya uses her training and experience in understanding what’s going on underneath the surface to support her clients as they face trauma, shame, or low self-esteem.

Tanya previously worked as a lawyer and continues to provide support to families going through mediation outside of her therapy practice. She brings respect, honesty, and compassion to each session with the aim of helping her clients better understand themselves.

Message to clients

Therapy provides a client the unique opportunity to learn something new about who they are and how they walk through the world. Working collaboratively with a trained professional provides the opportunity to see things from a different perspective and to try new approaches or get new perspectives on old problems.

Gaining deeper knowledge, compassion and respect for who you are at your core can improve your relationships, increase your self-esteem and assist you in making better choices.

I have successfully worked with many people who initially felt that therapy was shameful or that it couldn't possibly be helpful for them. Ultimately, they came to find that the opposite is true; only the truly courageous are able to open themselves up to exploration and ask for help when it is needed.

I invite you to reach out and experience the transformation that can occur when two people work together to build relationships, break out of old patterns and achieve life goals.
