Jonathan Schnapp is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Midtown East, New York. His practice focuses on self-exploration and helping clients better understand themselves in order to effectively pursue their goals. Many of Jonathan’s clients come to his office when they are experiencing depression, anxiety, and relationship challenges, and he supports them to recognize the past events and underlying beliefs that shape their views of themselves and the world.
Growing up in Queens and Long Island, Jonathan gained insight and experience with the Jewish Community. His grandfather, a holocaust survivor, was a Hebrew teacher, who gave Bar-mitzvah lessons, as well as a writer and scholar. He grew up hearing stories about the Jewish experience, his families life in Poland, and the trauma of the holocaust, and this solidified his identity as a Jewish man. He thoroughly enjoys working with and helping the Jewish Community.
Jonathan values exploring the full possibility of each individual’s identity: who they are, what their goals are, and how the ways in which they see themselves may be self-limiting. While his training is rooted in psychoanalysis, his approach is flexibility tailored to each client’s unique challenges, patterns, and goals. He focuses on tapping into his clients’ inner strengths and resiliencies, and collaboratively celebrates each success.
Jonathan completed his training at The Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Therapy (MITPP) and received his Master’s in Social Work from the Fordham Graduate School of Social Services. His private practice is conveniently located near Grand Central Station, and is open to individual psychotherapy for adults of all ages.
