Jill Gentile, Ph.D.

Jill Gentile is a practicing psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist, author, and psychoanalytic theorist. Her primary affiliations are with the NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (as adjunct clinical professor), and with the Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity in New York (as teaching and supervising analyst). Her book, Feminine Law: Freud, Free Speech, and the Voice of Desire, written with Michael Macrone, will be published by Karnac in the spring of 2016. She also serves as a corresponding editor of Contemporary Psychoanalysis and on the editorial board of the International Journal of Psychoanalytic Self Psychology. Her essays, describing a semiotic and phenomenological trajectory of agency, desire, and symbolic life, have been published in several psychoanalytic journals and presented at many international conferences.

She loves clinical practice, writing theory, teaching psychoanalysis, consulting to groups, and leading study groups for colleagues interested both in staying tuned to contemporary psychoanalytic literature and in developing a clinical ear for the music of emergent unconscious experience. A founding member of the DreamTank collective, dedicated to the application of psychoanalysis to democracy and to public life, she maintains private practices in Highland Park, New Jersey and in Manhattan, New York.
