About Us

Blanton-Peale Institute & Counseling Center provides affordable mental health care in Midtown Manhattan. Last year, 1,550 people representing the full diversity of the City of New York worked with a Blanton-Peale therapist in our New York State-licensed clinic to overcome trauma, shame, depression and anxiety. Through a caring relationship with “their” therapist, they became more hopeful, more grounded, more insightful, more whole. In 2017-18, Blanton-Peale Counseling Center will double its capacity.


Blanton-Peale amplifies this impact by training mental health professionals, leaders, and other caring people with the tools of psychology, mental health and spirituality. Graduates of our Psychoanalytic Training Program sit for NY State licensure as psychoanalysts; community- and faith-based leaders develop the skills to address today’s mental health crisis, including in our signature Care and Counseling Program for Korean Contexts; and “pop up programs” help other caring people address today’s most pressing challenges.

Blanton-Peale was founded in 1937 by internationally renowned Rev. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking, and the eminent psychiatrist Dr. Smiley Blanton, who trained with Sigmund Freud. Since 1953, it has been treating people of all beliefs, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and gender identities.
