Leslie Freedman, PhD

Whether you are unhappy or dissatisfied at work or at home, my treatment approach can provide you with the cognitive and emotional skills to understand your experience so that you can change and improve your life. As a clinical psychologist and family mediator, I have been practicing in Stamford CT and in New York City for the past 25 years. I work primarily with adults, couples, and families in short-term focused psychotherapy as well as in long-term intensive interpersonal treatment.

With the help of my integrative psychotherapeutic approach, you can improve your capacity to observe and reflect on how your thoughts, feelings, and actions interact with your experience of the world around you. This greater self-awareness is an essential part of a happy life.

Having these skills will allow you to consider a wider range of alternatives before you respond to both internal and external circumstances. And, with more choices and effective problem-solving abilities, anxiety, depression, self-defeating habits, and maladaptive coping strategies diminish and fade away.
