Drew Permut, PhD

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist,in private practice for over 25 years. I have been both broadly and deeply trained to treat a wide range of personal problems. Since my practice is not connected to an institution or large business operation, I am free to utilize my training and long experience in whatever way best suits each client. We work together in privacy, in a safe and confidential environment. This maximizes open communication, the development of fresh insights, and the opportunity for fundamental, constructive change.

My most important priority in working with you is to listen deeply and carefully, so that I can attend to what is really troubling you. By working with you in this way, I hope to  individualize your treatment to fit who you are and what will best address your particular problems.
