Helen Newman, Ph.D., RPP
Helen is a licensed New York State psychologist and psychoanalyst with over 35 years experience doing individual and couple’s psychotherapy. She has training in a number of modalities including cognitive-behavior therapy, family systems therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. In order to integrate bodily and energetic components into her practice, she trained to become a polarity therapy practitioner and later studied other mind-body therapies such as somatic experiencing and focusing. As a student of Almaas’ “Diamond Approach,” she also brings a spiritual dimension to her work. She believes that the relationship and rapport between practitioner and client play an important role in the healing process. Before relocating to the Hudson Valley, Helen was a professor of psychology at Hunter College, CUNY, where she enjoyed the experience of teaching, along with her private practice. She has written several published articles and chapters and stays current with advances in psychology and psychotherapy.
