About Jonathan Detrixhe

Before scheduling an appointment, please be aware that I am not in-network with insurance companies; my patients pay me out-of-pocket. However, some of my patients are reimbursed part of what they pay by their insurance company. If you want to be reimbursed for our sessions, you should check with your insurance company to see if your behavioral health plan has out-of-network benefits. Current pricing information is available on my website. I work with a variety of people whose active, creative lives have been interrupted by depression, mania, anxiety, mourning, and trauma. Psychotherapy with me is a process of guided expression. Thoughts and feelings, dreams and fantasies, desires and fears are given voice -- loud, clear, and without judgment. The experience of formulating authentic verbal and emotional expressions can be transformative in and of itself. Also, as patterns in your way of being become clear, you can begin to consider alternatives, find courage to change, and experience what is commonly known as freedom. I think mental health means developing a Full Self -- a progressive version of you that can love hard and work hard, understand complex motivations, and experience feelings, including painful ones, without being overwhelmed. In this process, I draw from extensive, ongoing training in both psychodynamics and cognitive-behavioral work. My training began in 2005 at Bellevue's Psychiatric Emergency Room. I am an adjunct professor in a clinical Ph.D. program and a supervisor of trainees at two college clinics. I also supervise psychiatry residents at Mt. Sinai Hospital. My publications are in the areas of solitude, loneliness, and personality disorders.

I can't possibly describe my experience with Jon without reducing it to a series of clichés; language isn't enough, whichalone should say something about how he surpassed all my expectations regarding therapy and its possibilities. I didn't know that anyone could understand, let alone appreciate, the way I experience reality until I met Jon. Problems I thought were too massive to gain perspective on have now come into full view. He's likely to grok your most obscure references, cultural and intellectual, or appreciate your crudest jokes. He has this cool office in a building filled with artists and other therapists in a trendy part of Greenpoint; if you're struggling with how to phrase your thoughts a cursory glance at his book shelves or the art on his walls will usually provide inspiration. I'm saying only the most basic things here lest this become too specific, but he deserves 100% more reviews that express appreciation of what he does: he'll help you be okay with yourself, even when you feel less than zero.
