Jenny Marion, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist who provides psychoanalysis and psychotherapy to adults. She is an assistant director, teacher, and supervisor at the Greene Clinic.
Dr. Marion's approach to therapy is most informed by relational psychoanalysis, which is a form of treatment that explores our unconscious patterns of relating to ourselves and others. Psychoanalytic therapy provides a space to understand how your current experiences are connected to experiences earlier in your life. It also gives special attention to dreams, fantasies, and the feelings that arise within the therapy relationship itself. Over time, this process allows us to discover and reintegrate disowned parts of the self. Within the context of safe, collaborative relationship, Dr. Marion invites her patients to experiment with letting go of familiar patterns and living with more honesty and freedom.
Dr. Marion's areas of clinical expertise include:
Recovery from childhood trauma and abuse
Recovery from disordered eating
Issues related to love, intimacy, and sexuality
Queer- and trans-affirming therapy
