Therapists Providing Psychodynamic Therapy in New York

Psychodynamic therapy is based on Freud’s psychoanalytic theory that thoughts and behaviors are influenced by our unconscious mind and past experiences. Through collaborative conversation, clients deepen their awareness and understanding of the unconscious mind. Unlike traditional psychoanalysis, therapists often meet with clients once weekly over several months rather than several years.

My approach is warm and thoughtful, and never rushed. I believe the best treatments allow free and relaxed expression, while staying focused. I provide an environment that is safe and free of judgment, to let you express your most troubling concerns.
I know it can be difficult to come into a new space and talk about the challenges you’re facing, but you don’t need to face them alone. Together, we can begin to understand and change those things that keep you from feeling your best and help you thrive once again.

Most of us are used to keeping our thoughts and feelings to ourselves, but talk therapy works. Talk therapy can help you change the way you think and feel about your life. It can provide structure and meaning, reduce anxiety, raise mood, lead to self-awareness and improve relationships. Let's talk.

My work as a coach has been informed by my practice as a therapist. Too frequently my clients came to me with regrets about decisions they made early in life. I want to help you make choices and changes now that reflect your core values, so that when you look back, you realize you've lived a life full of joy, authenticity and deep satisfaction.

Sometimes we don't even realize how stressed we are until we find a safe space to share what's been going on in our lives. Having an expert on the other side of the room who is listening, responding, and engaged can make a world of difference - and quite literally lift the weight of the world off one's shoulders. My job is to support you and help you think through new angles on your life; to help you create the space and lightness you crave. Whether you are seeking therapy or psychological testing to inform your next steps academically or interpersonally, the goal is for you to create balance and make headway in your life.

Because therapy is a dynamic relationship but also a safe space you will be encouraged to think through interpersonal patterns and learn to take responsibility for your side of relationship equations - but also to skillfully express boundaries when they need to be there. This includes an openness to both client and therapist safely discussing our relationship as patterns that arise in work, family, friendships, and other types of relationships are also visible between client and therapist. When "together" works - whether it be in the client/therapist relationship, co-working partnerships or life partnerships - you are noticing your values, how they interact with others, discussing them and learning from yourself and others, and empowered and wise and making decisions based on your values in a way that is appropriately inclusive of others and productive for you.

I believe that successful treatment is based on a warm, supportive, collaborative, and non-judgmental therapeutic environment, in which the client can comfortably explore issues and experience a good connection with the therapist. Since I am trained in different modalities (including insight oriented/psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, ACT, DBT, IPT), I am able to tailor my clinical approach to each individual’s needs and work integratively.

My approach is collaborative and my goal is to help my clients learn new and more effective coping skills, make meaningful life changes, heal from past trauma, establish healthier relationships, and work towards achieving the life that they envision for themselves. Gains made by individuals in psychotherapy are often maintained for many years.

In my personal clinical experience, I have found that psychotherapy facilitates personal growth and healing. Clients gain better self knowledge and self confidence, communicate and assert themselves more effectively, become more aware of their needs and learn to replace old and Ineffective ways of coping by healthier ones. Clients make better choices for themselves and become less stuck and paralyzed. Some will make career changes; others will find more suitable partners, and many learn to live lives that are more meaningful, satisfying, and more consistent with their core values.

Psychotherapy can be either short-term or long–term. Some individuals want to focus on a specific issue or target specific symptoms and may need coaching through that specific issue. Others may want to work through more complex life issues in order to attain a better understanding of themselves or to achieve their
desired goals.

For nearly 100 years, growing alongside the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung stands the work of Roberto Assagioli, M.D. and Psychosynthesis. A transpersonal and distinctly western psychology, Psychosynthesis puts forth a holistic model of human development that takes into account the spiritual dimension of human nature. Assagioli saw humans as a vast array of biological, social and spiritual impulses and felt that a true psychology had to embrace all of these aspects of the person. Scott Thompson, M.Div., M.S., LMHC, works as a psychotherapist in private practice.
