Jorge Alcantar, Psy.D.

Post Doctorate Psychologist

Dr. Jorge Alcantar (he/him) is a post-doctoral psychologist at the Williamsburg Therapy Group. He provides short and long-term therapy to adults and adolescents in English and Spanish. His clinical interests and specialties include depression, anxiety, life transitions, trauma, substance use, relationship issues, obsessionality, autism, identity development, and issues related to gender and sexuality. He collaborates with his clients to decide on a treatment that suits their needs, goals, and values.

Dr. Alcantar has a warm presence and practices with authenticity, humor, and respect. His work focuses on helping individuals become more in touch with themselves and the world around them, develop psychological flexibility, and achieve meaning as they define and work towards a life worth living. He firmly believes that successful therapeutic treatment comes from awareness, connection with our hearts and minds, and the ability to solve problems that lead to a satisfying life. Moreover, his experience has shown him that it is possible to enjoy the therapeutic process while engaging in meaningful work that leads to long-lasting change.

Dr. Alcantar received his bachelor’s degree in Italian Language and Culture and Psychology from Princeton University, and his master’s and doctoral degrees in Adult Clinical Psychology from Yeshiva University’s Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. He completed his pre-doctoral internship at the Behavioral Wellness Center at Girard in North Philadelphia, where he developed experience working with people living with psychosis and recovering from substance misuse. He also worked at the Attic Youth Center, a community-based organization in Center City, Philadelphia, where he worked with queer/LGBTQI+ youth. Prior to joining the Williamsburg Therapy Group, Dr. Alcantar trained at Baruch College Counseling Center, Metropolitan Center for Mental Health, and Mount Sinai Beth Israel.

Dr. Alcantar has also led research about gay men’s experiences with PrEP, HIV-related stigma, and consensually non-monogamous relationships. He has training in psychoanalytic, interpersonal/relational, psychodynamic, and dialectical behavior therapies, mindfulness-based interventions, and Buddhist, queer, feminist, anticolonial/anti-oppression conceptual frameworks.
