About Anthony Boiardo

I believe that therapy is a process of self-discovery that empowers one to better understand oneself and achieve meaningful change; a series of self-introductions that allows clients to develop and maintain authentic and fulfilling relationships with themselves and others. As a therapist, my goal is to allow clients to lead lives that align with their authentic selves by developing a comprehensive understanding of each person’s background so that we may resolve core issues that lead to unsatisfying behavioral patterns and relationships.  

My approach:

My approach to treatment is informed by psychodynamic principles, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). I strive to create an open and non-judgmental space where clients can feel free to express themselves authentically. As a clinician who has been heavily influenced by attachment theory, I aim to understand how a person’s early experiences with their caregivers shape their relationships and mental health across the lifespan.  In concert with these principles, I take an integrative stance that aims to embrace each client’s uniqueness and their goals for treatments. I aim to identity conscious and unconscious wishes, desires, and conflicts that impact a person’s experience.

Professional background:

I am currently a Doctoral Candidate in Clinical Psychology at The New School for Social Research in New York, New York. My dissertation research seeks to understand factors that contribute to self-objectification in gay-identifying men; specifically, I seek to understand how early relationships with caregivers and internalized homophobia impact drive for muscularity and body shame among these men. In my previous training experiences at The Safran Center, The New School Counseling Center, Mount Sinai and NYU World Trade Center, I have had the privilege of working with a diverse patient population presenting with a broad range of presenting problems and mental health concerns. It was through these experiences, that I developed a passion for delivering trauma-informed interventions and LGBT-affirmative care.
