We are hiring!

We strive to be a nexus for cultivating meaningful connections and to undo aloneness through our psychotherapy practices and our ways of being in the world. Does that resonate with you?

Who are we?

Rennicke & Associates is a vibrant psychotherapy group practice located in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City that also delivers online therapy services right to the comfort and familiarity of client homes. Our mission is to meaningfully connect with people to undo prior experiences of aloneness and isolation in healing the pain and distress in their lives. 

A foundational element of our striving to connect is our current initiation of a long-term commitment to enhance and expand our consciousness about how our own racial, ethnic, gender identities and sexual orientations show up in our therapy rooms and in the world.  We are stepping up and profoundly into the idea that in order for us to see you and connect deeply, we must also see ourselves clearly too and the ways that systems of oppression impact all of us. We are looking for new voices to help us deepen into this process of growth and change.

We are a true community and invest time in meeting together in our weekly case conference, ongoing supervision, and gatherings outside the office. We are looking for people who exude vitality, prioritize connecting with others, and have a deep passion for social justice, racial equity and self-reflection.

Our goal is to continue to establish ourselves as a nexus point for connection and center for thought leadership for psychotherapy in New York City and beyond.

What kind of therapy do we do?

In order to undo aloneness and facilitate connections, Rennicke & Associates specializes in attachment focused, relationally based modalities of treatment (e.g., Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Collaborative Problem Solving, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy) for children, teens and adults. We also utilize and integrate evidence based interventions (e.g. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy). Check out our Services by clicking here.
