CPPNJ - The Center for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy of New Jersey


Introducing Maureen Gallagher, Ph.D.

I am very excited to be joining the faculty of the psychoanalytic training program and the couples therapy training program of CPPNJ.  I'm originally from New York, and relocated to Montclair, NJ about 5 years ago, so I am happy to be finding a new analytic home in NJ.  I completed my analytic training at NIP in 2001, and I've had a private practice in New York City for the last 16 years.  I started a practice in Montclair about 4 years ago.  I see adults, adolescents and couples.

I am very interested in the integration of relational psychoanalysis, attachment theory, and body inclusive treatment.

In addition to being a relational psychoanalyst, I am a somatic experiencing practitioner and have been training in emotionally focused couples therapy for the last few years.  I bring my attention to present moment, experientially focused treatment while holding a relational foundation in mind.
