Azeen A. Khan, Psychoanalyst
Dr. Azeen Khan is a licensed psychoanalyst with a private practice in Manhattan, New York City. In addition to working with adults, she also works with children (all age groups) and adolescents.
Her analytic orientation is informed by the work of Sigmund Freud and the teachings of Jacques Lacan, as elaborated by Jacques-Alain Miller and other members of the schools of the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP). She is a member of the Lacanian Compass, an associated group of the New Lacanian School (NLS), one of the seven schools comprising the WAP.
A Lacanian Psychoanalysis
Psychoanalysis, from the moment of its inception in the practice of Freud, has constituted an invitation to speak for each analysand. With time, each analysand’s speech comes to be organized around what is difficult or impossible for them to bear and, therefore, speak about: their symptom, that is, their very specific mode of jouissance.
A Lacanian psychoanalysis offers each analysand the possibility of inventing a new way of making do with their symptom. Through acts of speech addressed to an analyst, one can begin to find singular and satisfactory solutions to old and repetitive ways of being and responding.
