Dr. William Gilson, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

JUNGIAN, LGBTQI, INTERCULTURAL. Full-time private practice 30+ years. I am accepting patients who are motivated to confront issues which are preventing them from fully actualizing themselves. Current practice: Jungian oriented analytic approach. Diverse patient population--Asian, S.Asian, Americans, Persons of Color,Latinos, Artists to CEOs. Common presenting issues--anxiety, depression, substance abuse, self sabotaging behaviors, career/social difficulties, HIV/medical conditions, history of sexual/physical/ emotional abuse. Training: Jungian supervision 20+ years with Nathan Schwartz-Salant. Adult psychiatry residency at Albert Einstein/Tremont Crisis Center, the first NYC training program which focused on a community based intercultural approach. Child and Adolescent fellowship. CME to remain current on medication options. Treatment: I view symptoms as protection from feelings which are too to painful to experience. Undertaking the journey of self exploration requires courage. Identifying patterns of behavior and their genesis provides the basis for self-acualization. I encourage other modalities e.g. spiritual practice, AA, exercise, yoga, diet. Practical I do not accept any insurance. Out of network coverage. I am not primarily a psychopharmacologist. Accept medication patients for anxiety, depression, ADD, panic attacks. SKYPE option. Short term treatment for life issues.
