Marjorie Schlenoff, psychoanalyst, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
For Mrs. Schlenoff, her career over the last four decades has always been much more than simply getting the work done. In her field, she has been devoted to having a positive impact on the lives of others by pursuing her own curiosities about the human mind. She became involved in her profession because she was inspired through education and taking a course in psychology at the University of Maryland with Dr. Steinman. He lit up her mind about what was possible in the field of psychology. That summer, she worked with mentally challenged and autistic children, as well as violent mentally ill people at the state prison. In reflecting back, Mrs. Schlenoff notes that this exposure gave her the desire to understand her own place in the world by helping others understand theirs. She completed her education, which now includes a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from the University of Maryland, a Master of Social Work from Columbia University and a psychoanalytic certificate from the Westchester Center for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. Mrs. Schlenoff has also completed seminars on sex therapy with Helen Singer Kaplan at Cornell Medical Center.
Mrs. Schlenoff’s career has evolved and progressed over the years, allowing her to utilize her skillset for the greater good and take the opportunity to further develop her perspective. In addition to working in private practice in the disciplines of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and the treatment of sexual dysfunction, she found success in noteworthy roles including faculty member and field work coordinator for the Institute of Counseling and Therapy at the Foundation of Religion and Mental Health, consultant for the Northeast Counseling Center, adjunct clinical instructor for the Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Hunter College, lecturer of social work in psychiatry at Cornell Medical College, professional associate at New York Hospital, director of the Reach Out Employment Assistance Program and developer and host of the weekly program “Let’s Talk About Sex” on station WVIP. Mrs. Schlenoff’s most recent project has been founding Teach With Africa, a nonprofit organization for global education. She established the program in 2007 and she is proud to continue spearheading the initiative today.
When asked of her success, Mrs. Schlenoff credits her accomplishments to her perseverance and her commitment to professionally developing her skillset. She has been very involved in her professional community over the years. She is a fellow of the Society of Clinical Social Work Psychotherapists, national member of Alpha Epsilon Phi and member of the American Association of Sex Educators, the Sex Information and Education Council of the US, the American Psychoanalytic Association, and the Westchester Center of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. As she looks ahead to the future, Mrs. Schlenoff intends to continue in her non-profit leadership with Teach With Africa while enjoying her favorite hobbies, which includes tennis.
