About M. Kim Sarasohn, Ph.D.

M. Kim Sarasohn - Psychotherapy

Many years ago, I was the advertising manager for a rather intellectual literary magazine.  Charged with selling advertising, I was given an American Express Card and invited people to lunch.  I discovered that the conversations I engaged in, the people I engaged with, were more interesting and ultimately more compelling; and the ad space quickly faded into the background. 

Now, I am a seasoned psychotherapist with over 20 years experience treating a diverse group of clients for a range of individual, couple and family issues.  Before beginning my private practice I worked in outpatient substance abuse, with traumatized and at-risk families, and in community mental health clinics. I have developed expertise in addressing complications of depression, anxiety, finding, maintaining, and in some cases leaving meaningful relationships, as well as obstacles to personal and professional achievement. 

I have been extensively trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, psychodrama, and more recently in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy.

I am an adjunct professor at NYU's Silver School of Social Work for over 10 years, teaching classes to  masters level students in Human Behavior, and Social Work Practice. I have published original, peer-reviewed articles on depression, and  psychotherapy treatment, participated in evidence-based research, and periodically review books for professional publications.
