Olga Poznansky, PhD, Psychologist in New York
I have over 10 years of experience working as a psychologist with children and adults. My style is practical and active, but I also look carefully at deeper influences beyond the immediately obvious. My treatment approach emphasizes the importance of human relationships both in creating and in resolving problems. I view psychological symptoms as attempts to communicate something essential and understandable about our suffering, fears, and wishes-the emotional meanings of our personal history. In addition, I believe in respecting patients' authority in their own lives, including in the therapy process.
My clients leave therapy feeling more accepting of themselves and of others, with greater freedom to engage in life. Most importantly, people leave with new ways of knowing how to deal with the inevitable challenges of life that may arise in the future.
I see adults and adolescents in individual therapy. I see children age 0 to 2 in dyadic treatment, working with the child and parent together. I see children 3 and up in play therapy. Issues I treat include anxiety, depression, trauma, work and school inhibitions, childhood behavior problems and parenting concerns, among others.
