NYC Therapy for Chronic Pain
YOU MAY ENCOUNTER MANY DEFEATS, BUT YOU MUST NOT BE DEFEATED
DR. MATTHEW PALDY
OUR BODIES COMMUNICATE TO US CLEARLY AND SPECIFICALLY
Every Day, There is a Constant, Ache That Accompanies You Everywhere You Go.

Therapy for chronic pain involves addressing the impact of pain on your mind and life and underlying psychological factors that contribute to subsequently disrupted self. This may include exploring early childhood experiences and relationships, identifying patterns of self-doubt or negative self-talk, and developing strategies to cultivate a more integrated and cohesive sense of self. I can help you cope with chronic pain and often ease it more than you had thought.

YOUR BODY HEARS EVERYTHING YOUR MIND SAYS
Sometimes It Feels Like a Tight Knot, While Other Times It's a Stabbing Sensation.

When the self is fragmented or disrupted it can lead to a variety of symptoms, including body pain. Body pain can be seen as a physical manifestation of the disrupted self, reflecting the person's inner emotional pain and lack of integration. Together we'll develop a deeper understanding of your emotions and how they are connected to your physical symptoms. Pain can be overcome.

PAIN IS NOT A PUNISHMENT. PLEASURE IS NOT A REWARD
The Lack of Relief Leads to Feelings of Frustration, Anxiety, Depression, and Hopelessness.

Through the therapeutic process, you can gradually develop a more stable sense of self, leading to a reduction in body pain and an overall improvement of your psychological well-being. Chronic pain leads to feelings of helplessness and meaninglessness. The self is not a fixed entity but an ongoing process of self-creation and self-maintenance. I can help you to transcend these physical challenges and feel more grounded and purposeful in your life.

YOU ARE NOT YOUR PAIN. YOU ARE THE OBSERVER OF YOUR PAIN
The Human Spirit is Stronger Than Anything That Can Happen to It.

I provide a holistic and integrative approach to understanding your pain. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy recognizes the importance of addressing all the factors that contribute to your pain. Disconnection from one's self exacerbates pain. We can work together in a healing process to understand the interconnections between your mind and body that contribute to the experience of physical pain.
