for that authentic late-90s web feeling
I'm Adam Pollock, and this is my personal website.
I work as a candidate -- that's psychoanalyst talk for a psychoanalyst in training -- at the CMPS Consultation and Referral Service, and as tech director at Infinia Group.
TechnicalI started in IT in 1997, after graduating from Bard College, and finiding myself at loose ends with a literature degree and little sense of direction. I've worked for large not-for-profits, small creative firms, and much else in between, at first mostly on Windows, then mostly on Macs. It's been more than twenty years now, so I must know something about it.
TherapyI got involved in psychoanalysis in 2011, first as a patient. I'd tried different therapies and medications before, but nothing really stuck. Whether because of the technique, or my readiness to accept it, this did. I began analytic training, first taking a Master's, and then working towards clinical certification in New York. I'm glad to have found something I can age into, rather than out of, that puts all my mind and experience to good use. I love working with patients. I'm often amazed that I get to do and say that.
CyclingI love the bike, as transportation, recreation, and machine. Other than maybe the pencil or pen, and the cookpot, I can't think of another physical human creation that has been a less ambiguous good. I'm fortunate to be rich in bikes and opportunities to ride them.
ReadingHere are some books I'm currently reading:
- Fink, Bruce. Against Understanding: Commentary and Critique in a Lacanian Key, Volume 1. New York: Routledge, 2014.
ContactHere are some places where I can be found online. I'm adamdoesit pretty much everywhere, so it's not like you couldn't guess.
Or, email me.
