Helping You Cope

With Your Life Issues

My role is to help people understand themselves more deeply, exploring their lives in a way that can only happen in the safety of therapy.

As an experienced clinical psychologist based in NYC, Peter Meiland PH. D has been providing exceptional psychological services to clients from Manhattan and surrounding areas for over 20 years.

People go into therapy for different reasons; difficult relationships, medical conditions, anxiety and depression, the process of getting older, and the desire to meet life’s goals, just to name a few.

New York Psychologist Individual Psychotherapy

Individual Psychotherapy & Psychological Testing NYC

People go into therapy for different reasons; difficult relationships, medical conditions, anxiety and depression, the process of getting older, and the desire to meet life’s goals, just to name a few.

I believe that people are the “experts” in their own lives.  This may not be how they feel in the first meeting, but the process of therapy should help one find strength in themselves, make courageous choices, and take risks in their lives.

New York City Psychologist Learning Disability Diagnosis

Learning Disability Diagnosis NYC

Learning-disabled children usually know that something is hard for them.  Typically, they believe they struggle academically because they are are either “stupid” or  “not trying”.  It’s heartbreaking to talk to a child with a learning disability who has already acquired this label.

Children benefit from testing because it “de-mystifies” them.  They learn the real reasons for their struggle.  Testing leads to strategies to “work around” a learning disability, and shows how a child has already “compensated” for their learning disability” (often by becoming unusually capable in other subject areas).

NYC Clinical Psychologist Diabetes Help Therapy

Diabetes Management NYC

Psychotherapy is a helpful addition to the other types of treatment a diabetic may be using.  The challenges for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics are often different, requiring  separate approaches to self regulation and management.

Psychotherapy serves as a complementary role in the management of the illness, aimed at addressing the psychological and behavioral dimensions of the illness and its treatment.

New York City Based Clinical Psychologist

I am a clinical psychologist based in NYC with over 20 years experience. I have been in private practice in the Union Square neighborhood since 1996, and have also worked in a number of clinical and educational settings.

Training

I earned my doctorate (Ph.D.) in Clinical Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University and trained as a psychoanalyst between 2002 and 2008 in order to deepen my skills and understanding in helping my clients.

Supportive, Genuine & Customized Approach

While my training and background is broadly psychoanalytic, I am interactive with my clients, and don’t fit the mold of the silent analyst.  I am supportive, direct in my ways of talking about problems, and have a good sense of humor.
