Dr. Autumn Winslow is a post-doctoral psychologist at the Williamsburg Therapy Group who provides psychotherapy to adults, adolescents, and couples. She specializes in working with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, substance use, difficult life transitions, and stressors related to gender and sexuality.
Dr. Winslow works from an integrative treatment perspective which emphasizes both relational and humanistic approaches. Such approaches allow for a greater understanding of patterns in one’s relationships, while building on existing strengths and each of our own capacities for self-determination and change. She also integrates the use of emotion regulation skills seen in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and mindfulness-based techniques for managing overwhelming distress, such as anxiety, impulse control concerns, and sleep difficulties.
For those struggling with issues related to substance use, Dr. Winslow works from a harm-reduction psychotherapy framework which emphasizes meeting the client where they are in their recovery journey to develop meaningful, realistic goals for improving everyday functioning and quality of life.
Dr. Winslow earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from The New School, with a certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at Mount Sinai St Luke’s Hospital, where she received specialized training in addiction, personality disorders, and severe mental illness such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Dr. Winslow also underwent clinical training at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, John Jay College Counseling Center, and South Beach Psychiatric Center, where she worked with inpatient populations, college-aged individuals, and clients in a community mental health setting.
In addition to her clinical training, Dr. Winslow has taught psychology courses at Eugene Lang College and the New School for Public Engagement on topics related to the intersection of gender, psychology, and mental health. Her doctoral dissertation research focused on women’s experiences of coping with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). She attended Mount Holyoke College for her undergraduate studies where she studied History and Critical Social Thought.
