The work I do with people is important and incredibly rewarding. My patients come from all walks of life across many ethnic and cultural groups. In any given week, I'll work with young children, teens, families, and adultsof all ages. I help parents better understand the needs of their school-age children. I help teens deal with the contradictions and challenges of growing up in our society. My work with families helps them become more patient, understanding, and supportive of one another. I help adults work through the challenges of depression, loss, and chronic disease. I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in New York and Massachusetts. The cornerstone of our work together is collaboration. I am your partner in creating the change you want to see in your life.
About Jephtha Tausig-Edwards
Hi there! I have been a licensed psychologist for over 20 years, working with children, teens, young adults and the elderly from all walks of life -- it's the most rewarding work I could ask for.
My patients come from many different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. My approach to successful counseling is one person, one family at a time. No two patients are the same, and that’s why I strongly believe in a customized, personal approach to treatment. I look at my work as a collaboration between me and my patients -- my goal is to be a true partner in helping them achieve the change they want to see in their lives.
I have my own practice in New York City and am always accessible to my patients, no matter the time or day. A little background about me -- I am the supervising psychologist for Family & Children’s Services of Nantucket. My clinical experience includes Columbia University’s Center for Psychoanalytic Training & Research, Richmond University Medical Center, Maimonides Medical Center, Gay Men’s Health Crisis and the Bellevue Hospital Center. I am also a visiting scholar at Teachers College - Columbia University and a clinical instructor at Mt. Sinai Medical Center.
I've been living in New York for quite awhile now, since earning my doctorate in clinical psychology from Columbia University. I also hold three masters from Columbia and NYU. I earned my undergraduate degree in fine arts from NYU.
I have presented at many scientific meetings and in clinical settings, as well as in the classroom. I also belong to many professional organizations, such as the New York Academy of Medicine, the China-American Psychoanalytic Alliance (CAPA), American Psychological Association (APA), and Association for Psychological Science (APS). Lastly, I love to volunteer in my spare time, and am a member of the New York City Junior League and the Women’s City Club of New York.
