Dr. Valerie Bryant

I am a Black female trauma therapist with 30+ years in private practice with expertise in developmental and complex trauma. I use a creative range of different modalities: Somatic Experiencing, EMDR and psychoanalytic talking therapy. As a former tenured academic for 20 years, i am presently on faculty, supervisor and consultant at NYC Institute trauma programs teaching 2 courses: “Intergenerational and Socio-Cultural Transmission of Trauma” and “Recovery, Resilience and Beyond. I am Co-Coordinator of a 2021 SE training program organized with Black Therapists Rock.

I meditate daily, participate in monthly sangha and attend many silent retreats. I am committed to exploring the intersectionality of race, ethnicity, social class, gender and culture. I do not accept insurance.
