Specialties & expertise
Jerold Nashban is a Licensed Psychoanalyst with an office in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The focus of his practice is helping patients deal with emotional pain related to a lack of satisfaction in their area of career choice and/or their ability to be in a satisfying relationship.
Jerold practices psychoanalytic psychotherapy, a deep insight-oriented form of talk therapy that enables patients to access parts of themselves of which they remain unaware. This, in turn, facilitates the resolution of internal conflicts. His goal is to help provide a stable environment for patients to free themselves of self-defeating patterns of behavior.
Warm and empathetic, Jerold strives to create a welcoming environment for patients to freely share their thoughts and work toward positive change. His practice is conveniently located by Lincoln Center.

Message to clients
“Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a useful tool when you find yourself stuck in self-defeating patterns in relationships and work.”
Treatment approachesPsychoanalytic TherapyPsychoanalytic therapy tends to look at experiences from early childhood to see if these events have affected the individual’s life, or potentially contributed to current concerns. This form of therapy is considered a long-term choice and can continue for weeks, months or even years depending on the depth of the concern being explored. Psychoanalytic therapy aims to make deep-seated changes in personality and emotional development. (learn more)
