This kind of rhetoric is not unique to one lone psychoanalyst.
You get a lot of the same thing from The American Psychoanalytic Association. The Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association just published an entire issue [April 2021] with plenty of similar language.
An abstract from Donald Moss' paper "On Having Whiteness":
Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which “white” people have a particular susceptibility. The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world. Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate. Effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions. Such interventions can reasonably aim only to reshape Whiteness’s infiltrated appetites—to reduce their intensity, redistribute their aims, and occasionally turn those aims toward the work of reparation. When remembered and represented, the ravages wreaked by the chronic condition can function either as warning (“never again”) or as temptation (“great again”). Memorialization alone, therefore, is no guarantee against regression. There is not yet a permanent cure.

We always knew that psychoanalysts were not that tightly wrapped, but this all-in hatred of whites is new.
