Vanessa Sinclair, Psy.D. is an American psychoanalyst now based Stockholm, who sees clients internationally, specializing in offering quality psychoanalytic treatment remotely and online. This may be of interest for freelancers, students, people of varying abilities and those who live rurally and may not otherwise have access to psychoanalytic treatment, those who work from home, have small children, or may be homebound. This is also a useful framework for people with active lifestyles, who are constantly on the go – entrepreneurs, creatives, business people, actors, ex-pats. For those who often travel, the ability to see a high quality clinician remotely aids continuity of care.
