Founded in 1943 and based on the psychoanalytic theories of Harry Stack Sullivan, the William Alanson White Institute is renowned among psychoanalytic institutes for its commitment to providing affordable psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to the local community. Early on, the Institute distinguished itself by questioning conventional wisdom and emphasizing the social and familial forces that impact individual problems in living. Sullivan’s work is distinctive in its commitment to addressing the destructive impact of stigma and marginalization on human development, experience and relationships. The LGBTQ Psychotherapy Service extends this institutional tradition by examining the ways that social forces can negatively impact the lives of members of the LGBTQ community.
