Charles M. Lepkowsky, PhD

I’ve been in private practice since 1985, assessing and treating a variety of issues including anxiety and mood disorders, neurocognitive disorders, relationship and aging issues. I work with people 9 years of age and older, and dedicate much of my practice to older adults. I maintain medical staff membership at three local hospitals and consult with businesses and organizations.
