Blair A. Casdin, LCSW-R


I am a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist. In my private practice, I provide counseling to adults and adolescents with a diverse range of issues, including:

My goal is to help you identify whatever blocks you from achieving your goals, and ultimately derive more satisfaction from your life. My approach blends compassion with directness. I am an active therapist, both when I am listening intently to your story, piecing together its meanings, and when I am giving you feedback.

My Background

I have many years experience in psychodynamic therapy. After receiving my MSW from New York University’s School of Social Work in 1996, I began my career in California at Stanford Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry and then moved to Kaiser Permanente’s Department of Psychiatry. In these programs I developed and ran groups, and provided individual, couples, and family counseling.

Prior to opening my private practice in New York, I worked as a clinician and supervisor at the Jewish Board of Family & Children’s Services Bronx Clinic providing individual and group therapy to adults with mental illness. I received a Post-Graduate Certificate from the William Alanson White Institute’s Intensive Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program, and am a candidate in the 5-year program of the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis.

I serve on the curriculum committee of the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis, and am editor of the blog Analysis Now.

I am a member of the Women's Mental Health Consortium, the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work, and the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy.
