Therapy can be understood as a homecoming of sorts, a return to a self that feels more authentic and complete.

About Bill O'Brien

Bill O’Brien has been a therapist for 18 years. He has a degree in psychology from Williams College and a master’s in social work from Hunter College School of Social Work. He has worked with a wide range of people, but has developed specialties in treating adolescents, gay men, people with chronic pain conditions, and those who wish to incorporate spiritual practice and ritual into their daily lives.


His approach is by training psychoanalytic, but in practice more relational—meaning the “aliveness” of the relationship between therapist and patient, the texture of it, the honesty, is of primary importance. He also tries as best he can to make room for the mystical—for that we may not understand but know exists.
