Blair A. Casdin, LCSW-R


I am a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and certified psychoanalyst. In my private practice, I provide counseling to adults and couples with a diverse range of issues, including:

My goal is to help you identify whatever blocks you from achieving your goals, and ultimately derive more satisfaction from your life. My approach blends compassion with directness. I am an active therapist, both when I am listening intently to your story, piecing together its meanings, and when I am giving you feedback.

My Background

After receiving my MSW from New York University’s School of Social Work in 1996, I began my career in California at Stanford Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry and then moved to Kaiser Permanente’s Department of Psychiatry. In these programs I developed and ran groups, and provided individual, couples, and family counseling. Prior to opening my private practice in New York, I worked as a clinician and supervisor at the Jewish Board of Family & Children’s Services Bronx Clinic, providing individual and group therapy to adults with mental illness. I received a Certificate from the William Alanson White Institute’s Intensive Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program in 2011, and completed a course in couples counseling at the Ackerman Institute in 2013. In 2016, I graduated from the 5-year certificate program in psychoanalysis at the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis

I serve on the curriculum committee of the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis, and am editor of the blog Analysis Now.

I am a member of the Women's Mental Health Consortium, the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work, and the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy.
