  • I see patients in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Psychoanalysis is the most intense and effective dynamic treatment . Patients are seen four and five times per week.  Patients who opt for psychotherapy are encouraged to be seen at least twice a week.
  • I can be contacted at my office (212) 772-6443 or via email at (Vanderheidemd @ New patients are usually seen within the first 48 hours; sometimes the same day.
  • Payment is expected at the time of the initial visit. Major credit cards are accepted.
  • As part of every consultation, I will highlight the major issues as I understand them and discuss what is needed for real benefit or change to occur.
  • I provide any needed psychiatric medications. By nature I am not quick to prescribe but there are sometimes conditions that cannot wait for psychotherapy to ameliorate.
  • Fees are negotiable and based on individual circumstance and number of sessions per week.
  • If convenient and workable times for sessions cannot be found, I will refer patients to other high-caliber psychoanalysts and therapists in the New York area.
  • My office is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, off Madison Avenue, and is not easily accessible by wheelchair.
