Dr. Werner S. Achatz, Ph.D.
Licensed Psychologist (New York: 019216)

I am a licensed Psychologist and Psychoanalyst in New York City, specializing in individual and couples therapy since 2002. I focus on helping you to improve and enhance self-understanding, to learn how to make better decisions, and to live a happier and more satisfying life, with stronger self-determination, autonomy, and a greater sense of freedom.

My approach is psychodynamic, client-centered, and solution-focused. Areas of expertise include: anxiety, isolation and loneliness, trauma, low self-esteem, gay, lesbian and transgender issues, creative blocks, identity issues, separation, loss and grief, coming of age concerns, relationship conflicts, and issues of intimacy and infidelity.

I work in Private Practice and I am also a Staff Psychologist at the Center for Intensive Treatment of Personality Disorders at St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital.

I offer my services in both English and German. My private practice is conveniently located near Columbus Circle in Manhattan.
