Photo of Stephen A. Diamond, PhD, Psychologist
Dr. Diamond has been practicing psychotherapy for 45 years and is a licensed clinical and forensic psychologist. He is the author of Anger, Madness, and the Daimonic: The Psychological Genesis of Violence, Evil and Creativity (1996), and contributed chapters to Meeting the Shadow (1990), Spirituality & Psychological Health (2005), Encyclopedia of Psychology & Religion (2009), and Contemporary Theory and Practice in Counseling & Psychotherapy (SAGE, 2015). Diamond's unique treatment approach (Existential Depth Psychology) is a fusion of psychodynamic and existential therapy, with an emphasis on C.G. Jung's analytical psychology.
I have particular interest and expertise in the psychology of creativity, evil, spirituality, and anger/rage, and dealing with anxiety, depression, relationships, loss, embitterment, trauma, and various existential crises. I typically see patients once weekly; twice weekly when needed. Psychiatric referral for psychopharmacology is provided as appropriate.
I am dubious about suppressive treatments emphasizing biochemistry/neurology over psychology, brevity/superficiality over depth, comfort over consciousness, cognition over passion. Existential Depth Psychology (EDP) helps to redeem our "demons," embrace reality, find and fulfill our destiny.
