Baiyu Chen

Before I came to New York, I was a lecturer in medical school and a neuroscientist. I was interested in the wonders of the brain from a scientist’s point of view. My focus, over the last decade, has shifted from the brain to the mind. I think of psychotherapy – and, in particular, the psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis I practice – as a profound journey of understanding of oneself. Its purpose is to help people to understand feelings, behaviors, and habits that are troubling to them and to enrich their lives with new creativity, more fulfilling careers, and more meaningful relationships.

I work with individuals and couples, adults and children. I work with people who suffer from depression, anxiety, phobias, childhood and more recent traumas, addictions, physical complaints that have no physiological explanations, and many other difficulties. I work with people facing difficult decisions in their lives, whether about their careers or relationships.

I am fluent in English and in my native language, Mandarin.
