About Patrick Mele, Ph.D.

I strive to be curious and grounded so we can create a comfortable space for you to make yourself known. I can be empathic when you need comfort, or I can challenge you when you are inches away from a breakthrough. By asking questions and exploring new perspectives, we can unearth what is “not quite right” in your life. Let’s share laughs and tears as we discover what obstacles are standing in your way. 

Approach

My approach draws on psychoanalytic thinking, which revolves on one central idea: much of what we think and feel remains outside of our awareness. Sometimes we keep powerful feelings hidden so we can continue moving through the day, or we simply cannot find time to reflect on everything that is happening to us. In any case, keeping these potent experiences hidden may leave us feeling stiff, dreary, unfulfilled, or even numb. 

Together we will gently, yet firmly, uncover the distant thoughts and feelings that leave us wondering “how did we get here?” Through this uncovering, we begin to feel cohesive, content, and liberated as these parts of ourselves finally come together. 

Professional Background

I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The Derner School of Psychology: Adelphi University. Prior to joining Madison Park Psychological Services, I worked at The New York Psychoanalytic Institute, CUNY: The College of Staten Island, and SUNY: College at Old Westbury, where I provided both psychotherapy and psychological assessment services to children and adults. I also worked at Mount Sinai Beth Israel where I provided group therapy to those coping with severe mental illness.  

My research experience was focused on the relationship between ADHD and mindfulness meditation, and the relationship between sexuality and creativity.
