Hilli Dagony-Clark, Psy.D.

EXPERIENCE

I have worked as a psychologist (since 2006) and psychoanalyst (since 2010) with children, adolescents, teens, and adults on issues including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, body image issues, trauma, relationship, identity, and work difficulties.

Additional experience in community mental health clinics, hospitals, group homes, and the Washington, D.C. Superior Courts have prepared me to offer psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to a diverse multiethnic and international population.

TRAINING

My doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The George Washington University, and my pre- and postdoctoral work in urban clinics, have exposed me to a broad range of psychological practices.

My postdoctoral training in child and adult psychoanalysis at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute (NYPSI) enriched my understanding of the complexity of the mind. This classical analytic training has provided me with deep insight into my clients’ symptoms and conflicts.

Am I the right therapist for you?

I facilitate insight, growth, and lasting change in every treatment.

A joyful and peaceful inner life consists of passion and delight in relationships and work, respect and care for yourself, and mastery over your emotional world.

Loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, and confusion deplete your inner resources. Their pain can make you feel imprisoned.

I will collaborate with you in a non-judgmental, empathic, warm, and curious manner to help you meet your full potential by gaining insight into your conflicts, identifying your roles in them, recognizing and freeing yourself from limiting patterns in your life, and achieving adaptive and practical everyday solutions.

I will help you feel empowered, rather than imprisoned, by your life.

  • Psychoanalysis isn’t for everyone. My therapy draws on deep understanding of, and experience in, a broad range of therapeutic theories and techniques.

    This means I provide supportive treatment when clinically indicated, and recommend psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis to patients who will be best served by these methods.

  • I use my comprehensive knowledge of the mind to help clients understand and overcome their suffering so they can live a life of wonder, joy, and contentment.

Is your Upper East Side, New York office your only location?

Yes, but if the Upper East Side isn't convenient for you I can conduct visits through doxy.me. You'll find that link at the top of this page.

Can I get a same-day appointment?

It's possible to get a same-day appointment, but that's not guaranteed. Typically we'll need to find a time that works for both of us. That can take more than a day.

Do you accept insurance?

No, but my patients have found that they can typically submit for reimbursement using the invoices I provide.

How do I know whether psychotherapy or psychoanalysis is right for me?

It's not necessary to make that determination just yet! We will work together to understand your needs and decide which type of treatment will be most beneficial for you. And many people find they wish to change from one type to another in the course of their time with me.

Can I book an appointment online?

You can't schedule your booking online, but if you contact me via the form at the bottom of this page I'll be back in touch quickly and we'll find a time and day that work for you.

Are your rates comparable to other Upper East Side, New York psychologists and psychoanalysts?

Given the wide range of years of experience among Upper East Side (and New York in general) psychologists and psychoanalysts, you'll find a wide range of rates. My rates are comparable to those with similar background and experience.
