Stephanie Newman, Ph.D. - Therapy & Analysis

Dr. Stephanie Newman is a psychologist/ psychoanalyst and author who has practiced in New York City for over 2 decades.

Dr. Newman counsels individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, health and workplace concerns, and works with families and couples on issues relating to parenting and divorce. She is also a Visiting Scholar/Clinical Supervisor at Columbia University.

Dr. Newman writes on a range of psychologically and culturally significant topics. In Mad Men on the Couch she observes and analyzes the psyches of the show’s ad men and women through the lens of modern psychology and uses the characters as a vehicle through which to discuss contemporary trends in personality and diagnosis. The book was named a Top Ten Performing Arts book in 2012 by Publisher’s Weekly and a top holiday gift pick in the same year by Huffington Post.com. Likewise, in Money Talks, a collection of essays on finances and their incursion into private practice, Dr. Newman as contributor and co-editor, opens up for the discussion the crucially important but previously unspeakable topic of money in the analytic field. And finally, in "Teens and the Internet: How Much is Too Much," Dr. Newman elucidates the precarious position of teenagers who have become increasingly vulnerable to technology overuse. The article was selected for inclusion in Collections (HMH, 2016), the preeminent English Language Arts textbook and learning program in high schools throughout the United States.

Dr. Newman’s writing has been published in The Washington Post and on Wall Street Journal.com, NBC.com, and NPR.com, as well as Psychology Today.com, where she has been a regular contributor. She has appeared on National Public Radio and WNYC and on other radio shows throughout the country. Dr. Newman offers workshops and speaks at schools, camps, and professional societies on topics relating to parenting, bullying, and social media.

Dr. Newman received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University and a post-doctoral certificate in psychoanalysis from IPE (Formerly NYU Medical Psychoanalytic Institute). She lives in NY with her family.
