Valery Hazanov PhD

Clinical Psychologist

ABOUT

I was born in Moscow, Russia, grew up in Israel and studied and trained in New York. I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Columbia University and work in three languages–English, Russian, and Hebrew. I often work with people who have lived in different countries and cities, trying to help them find a sense of home and belonging in an increasingly transient modern world.

I work with adolescents and adults, and feel comfortable working with all psychiatric diagnoses. I am currently on staff at the Abarbanel mental health hospital, and in the past trained at Columbia Medical Center, Weill Cornell Medical College, St. Luke’s Hospital and other clinics and hospitals primarily in New York. I am also a former fellow of the American Psychoanalytic Association and the Columbia Center for Psychoanalysis.

I utilize many of the current psychological treatment approaches–for short or long term interventions–and customize them based on the person I work with and the problem we’re working on. But ultimately, I believe that success in psychotherapy depends upon creating something special between two people, where there is trust, understanding, and a sense of comfort.
