Joy A Dryer, PhD, Psychologist in Brooklyn
Not sure where to start? Searching for the "right" words? Concerned about talking to a 'complete stranger' about your anxiety/depression, relationship/work struggles, AD[H]D/ creativity blocks? Sure I "know" about people's struggles, individually & as couples -- and how to overcome these-- as well as different approaches to therapy. I have listened to & helped many folks over 32 years as a NYState Licensed Clinical Psychologist & Certified Adult Psychoanalyst. In addition, I have been an Adjunct Associate Professor (at NYU, Brooklyn College, & several NYC psychoanalytic institutes); I was in my own analysis; & I continue to supervise less experienced clinicians.
You can find out more about how I work from my website www.psychotherapyworksny.com. Since I do not "know" you specifically, my priority is to listen to you. To hear all about your concerns, feelings, fantasies & thoughts. After talking together, we will do three things during our initial consultation:
(1) Try to clarity & to understand your issues and priorities-- to whatever depth you are comfortable. (2) Define specific goals & next steps to address those concerns. (3) Determine together whether I'm the best person to work with you. Questions? check out www.psychotherapyworksny.com or email: jdryerphd@gmail.com.
