Mark O'Connell, LCSW-R, MFA, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
Therapy is an opportunity to be seen and heard, to heal and to grow. Together we can maximize your creative potential: personally, professionally, and in all of your relationships. Identity and relationship conflicts are my areas of expertise. My training and experience include psychodynamic relational therapy and analysis, and couples and family work. I'm also a professional actor and writer, which helps me to approach our work with an open, creative mind. I provide a safe supportive space for you to identify obstacles and goals, to expand your sense of self, and to live with freedom, meaning, and purpose.
I am author of the book Modern Brides & Modern Grooms, and columns for Psychology Today, and HuffPost, I'm also published in Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association,
