Dr. Greenfield's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Greenfield "I have over 27 years of clinical supervised experience providing psychotherapy, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy since 2001. I obtained my Ph.D. from New York University in 2005. My doctoral research investigated adolescent self-mutilation. My early training involved psychotherapeutic work with adult psychiatric inpatients for three years in the Bronx, NY. I then went on to provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and their families for four years in an outpatient clinic in Westchester NY. Following this, I spent eight years providing diagnostic consultations, individual and group psychotherapy, and EMDR to children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples at the HIP Mental Health Outpatient Service in Manhattan. Beginning in 1995 I began my part-time private practice, which became full-time in 2007. I am also a writer in the field of psychoanalysis, and a published book reviewer for the Journal of Trauma and Dissociation and the journal Psychoanalytic Perspectives. "
