Tracy Sidesinger, PsyD is a clinical psychologist bilocated between Flatbush, Brooklyn and Upstate New York. She earned her doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary in California, studying the intersection of psychology, religion, and attachment. From there she went on to study Jungian and Relational psychoanalysis in New York at the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association and The William Alanson White Institute, respectively. A mother herself, she also uses personal experience along with thousands of hours with patients to bring a feminist lens back to psychotherapy.
Dr. Sidesinger serves on the Board of Directors for the Museum of Motherhood in St Petersburg, FL as artist residency coordinator. She also serves as the Psychotherapy Action Network’s representative to the Mental Health Liaison Group, a nationwide policy group which advocates for equitable mental health resources through legislative means.
In her writing, Dr. Sidesinger challenges gender norms in culture and psychoanalysis, including a recent essay “The Feminine Yes: Return Me To Excess” published in Studies in Gender and Sexuality; and an essay in the edited volume Race, Rage, and Resistance: Philosophy, Psychology, and the Perils of Individualism (Routledge, 2019) entitled "The Nasty Woman: Destruction and the Path to Mutual Recognition." She has also been invited to speak across the country on the new frontier of psychoanalysis from a feminist critical, community-based lens. She is currently working on a collection of essays bridging psychoanalytic insight, interviews, and memoir to bear on the topic of feminine knowing.
