Dr. Antonia McMaster is a post-doctoral clinical psychologist. She offers individual and group psychotherapy to adults across the lifespan seeking treatment for depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and grief and bereavement. She also believes individual and group therapy offers an opportunity for exploration of questions not necessarily tied to discrete symptoms, including those related to identity and interpersonal relationships.
Antonia is committed to anti-racist, LGBTQIA+-affirming, feminist and anti-oppressive praxis; she opposes societal structures of oppression that define mental illness, and is cognizant of the ways in which our contemporary society causes and exacerbates what we know as symptomatology. Her approach is relational psychodynamic, with an eye towards what historical and intergenerational trauma may have brought her patients to therapy.
Antonia earned her doctorate from City College/CUNY Graduate Center, and completed her pre-doctoral internship at Mount Sinai Morningside & West Hospitals. As part of her doctoral training, Antonia also completed clinical practica at the following sites: The Psychological Center at City College, Hunter College Elementary School, Macaulay Honors College Counseling Center, and New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center.
