Dr. Madeline McKeon is a post-doctoral psychologist who provides short- and long-term therapy to adults and couples. She specializes in issues related to perinatal psychology, depression, anxiety, trauma, navigating life transitions, relationship issues, and identity development.
She takes an integrative approach to treatment, drawing from psychodynamic and relational perspectives, and incorporating interventions from Interpersonal Psychotherapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Through empathy and humor, she builds a strong collaborative relationship with clients, which allows clients to explore their inner selves, develop a greater awareness of emotions and destructive patterns, and work toward making meaningful change. Important aspects of a client’s identity including race, sexuality, gender expression, and cultural background are welcomed with openness and respect.
Dr. McKeon earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from The New School, and completed her pre-doctoral internship at Zucker Hillside Hospital where she received specialized training in perinatal psychology and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. She also received clinical training at the Brooklyn VA in the Military Sexual Trauma clinic, New School and Brooklyn College counseling centers, and Mount Sinai Beth Israel. Her graduate research focuses on the impact of sexual objectification and the navigation of social and institutional support in the context of sexual assault and harassment.
