Martha Crawford, LCSW is a writer, a community organizer, an adoptee rights advocate, a clinical social worker, a psychotherapist and a clinical supervisor in private practice in NYC since 1998.

What a Shrink Thinks is an online journal promoting general awareness, education, and transparency regarding the psychotherapeutic process.

The What a Shrink Thinks Seminar provides additional subscription content  – two essays monthly – focused on a didactic exploration of psychotherapeutic and analytic theory, readings, and resources in response to the queries and suggestions of subscribers.

In addition: I lead two Reading/Study Groups focused on depth psychology and Jungian thought – one online via video conferencing and one in my NYC office. I also offer a study group for clinicians working to address climate change anxiety and denial in their practices and communities. (Contact for more information.)

In 2017 I launched a dream collection project – The 45 Dreams Project- which involved collecting, sorting and writing about over 3,000 dreams of our 45 President.

In 2019, I opened the Climate Dreams Project to start gathering our unconscious narratives about climate breakdown and global warming.

I also offer coaching and consultation to writers constructing psychologically complex characters, or who are experiencing creative blocks.

Consultations available in office, and also through written correspondence, by phone and/or online video conferencing when appropriate.

If you would like to contact me for a consultation, readings, panel discussions or other enquiries please contact me here or at
