Dr. Grant Brenner grew up in a culture and family immersed in self-exploration, psychoanalysis, psychology, growth and change, science, and curiosity. Early on, he felt a desire to become a therapist, and before that, a scientist. As he grappled with his own challenges and inner forces, he followed a meandering path from physics to psychology, from surgery to psychiatry, ultimately entering psychoanalytic training and private practice in 2002.
With over 20 years in private practice, Dr. Brenner has developed a creative, results-driven approach to help his patients understand themselves, identify and breakdown limiting patterns, and realize their most fulfilling and complete potential.
It is his personal mission to help others, and through this, change the world for the better.
In this pursuit, Dr. Brenner is the Co-Founder/Former CEO of Neighborhood Psychiatry and Wellness, a board-certified psychiatrist and psychotherapist at a private Practice in New York City, and an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences for Mount Sinai Beth Israel. He is an entrepreneur, author, teacher, speaker, and not-for-profit board member, based in Manhattan. He has been featured on a variety of top ranked psychology resources and media as a thought leader and contributor.
Dr. Brenner is the co-author of three books, Irrelationship: How We Use Dysfunctional Relationships to Hide from Intimacy, Relationship Sanity: Creating and Maintaining Healthy Relationships, and the most recent sequel, Making Your Crazy Work For You: From Trauma and Isolation to Self-Acceptance and Love (Central Recovery Press). In addition, he is the author of the popular Psychology Today blog, ExperiMentations: Reflections on the Human Condition, with nearly 12 million views to date.
