Geoffrey Steinberg, Psy.D.
Geoffrey majored in psychology as an undergraduate and worked in applied research and consulting prior to pursuing his doctorate in clinical psychology at the APA-accredited program in clinical psychology at Antioch University New England, located in Keene, New Hampshire. Antioch is known for its socially progressive world view, encouraging students to bring their ‘whole selves’ to learning–not simply an accumulation of knowledge, but a full engagement of mind, heart, and social responsibility.
Supervised clinical experiences included a practicum working in the inpatient psychiatric units of Tewksbury State Hospital in Massachusetts and a practicum at Northeastern University’s Center for Counseling and Student Development. He then moved to New York for the pre-doctoral internship program at Stony Brook University Counseling Center. Informed by these training experiences in university counseling centers, his dissertation research examined how theories of psychological development may inform psychotherapy practice for college students.
Upon earning his doctorate, he worked as a staff psychologist at Pesach Tikvah, a mental health agency in Brooklyn that serves the Hassidic population in Williamsburg, providing psychotherapy to patients in a continuing day treatment program and consultation to the agency’s residential home for women with developmental disabilities.
In 2006, he started in private practice in Manhattan 2006. Areas of focus include relationship problems, aftermath of abuse or neglect, isolation and avoidance, existential concerns, depression, anxiety, obsessions, impulsivity, substance abuse, personality disorders, interpersonal concerns in the workplace, and developmental issues in relation to education and work.
Additional roles have included founding TherapySafetyNet, providing clinical supervision to graduate students at Teachers College, Columbia University, and volunteering research design and project management services for an exotic animal sanctuary in Texas.
Beginning in 2017, he divides his time between private practices in Manhattan and Philadelphia.
