Therapist Serving Nassau County & Northern Queens NY

Therapist Serving Nassau County & Northern Queens NY

Welcome. My name is Lisa Lempel-Sander, and I’m a licensed psychoanalyst and psychotherapist.

I’ve been in private practice in Douglaston for almost 20 years. My office, Douglaston Psychotherapy, offers mental health counseling or psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for a variety of different issues that cause emotional pain.


In this section you will find a list of some common conditions that cause emotional pain and would prompt a person to find a therapist. Keep in mind, however, that naming a problem can be a starting point, but diagnosis is not the final goal of the therapy or of the therapist. Treatment with a positive outcome is the goal of therapy. Every person is unique, complex, and special. Every therapy is therefore, necessarily unique, as it strives to meet the goals and hopes of each individual patient.

As a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, I love my work and am deeply committed to my patients. I work with individuals, families, and couples from all walks of life and who have a broad array of concerns. Douglaston Psychotherapy protects the dignity, respect, and safety of all patients, and no issue is too small, too unimportant, or too inappropriate for consideration.
