About Jerry Finkelstein, Ph.D.

I have been a practicing psychologist for 35 years and have been supervising therapists for over 30 years.

As Director of the New School Counseling Services for 16 years, I conducted initial consults on nearly a daily basis. As senior psychologist at Madison Park Psychological Service, this experience will be invaluable in conducting initial evaluations and enabling me to tailor an effective treatment plan, matching new clients with a therapist whom they can connect with.

My Approach:

I believe psychotherapy can open up new avenues to live life more fully. Challenging life experiences can lead to emotional knots and behaviors that are often not in a person’s best interest. This can lead to depression and anxiety, impact a person’s ability to create and sustain healthy relationships, as well as limit the capacity to achieve one’s goals. I believe creating a meaningful therapeutic relationship, where you can feel safe and free to explore, is essential to understanding and loosening the knots, liberating you to make better choices and live a more meaningful life.

Professional Background:

I completed my undergraduate studies at S.U.N.Y. Binghamton and obtained my PhD in clinical psychology from Saint Louis University. I worked as the Director of The New School College Counseling Center in New York City from 2006-2021. As director, I developed and oversaw a training program for Clinical Psychology PhD and Master of Social Work students. I am also the author of the book entitled: Where are Your (K)nots? Getting Unstuck in Your Life.
