Professional statement

Carlota Zitreen is a Licensed Psychoanalyst on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with 20 years of experience in the mental health field. She specializes in anxiety, depression, life transitions, loss and grief, mindfulness, and trauma. She also has an interest in helping people improve their self-esteem, as she believes that is at the root of many clients’ difficulties.

Carlota’s approach is psychoanalytical, meaning she helps clients gain insight into the origins of their challenges. For many clients who are at a difficult juncture in their lives, this knowledge can help refocus, regain momentum, and make important decisions.

Carlota also works with dreams for those who are interested, helping clients analyze and understand what their dreams might be telling them.

Carlota takes an active approach, in which engages and talks with clients, rather than just listening. She strives to be fully present with her clients, listening and responding empathically with compassion and without judgment

Carlota was formerly the Dean of the Westchester Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, where she also received her LP in 2003. Her office is located between the 86th and 96th Street subway stations of the 1, 2, and 3 lines.
