Hello! I'm Dr. Brian Freidenberg. In therapy, I place the therapeutic relationship above all else. The relationship is the vehicle for change. I believe that a good therapist listens well; is empathic; and provides a safe, empowering, and judgement-free environment. The client and I form a partnership to help the client navigate this great adventure called life. My primary areas of expertise are ADDICTIONS (e.g., substances, sex, video games, phone, social media), ANXIETY, CHILDHOOD and ADOLESCENCE, COLLEGE students, VETERANS, RELATIONSHIPS, TRAUMA, GROUPS, PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS, and COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, & families. I am trained as a culturally responsive cognitive behavioral therapist. An important part of my practice is my appreciation and admiration of culture. My clients are diverse by age, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, race, and ethnicity. I offer EVENING + WEEKEND hours.
I am a clinical psychologist who also has an MSW. Thus, I am a very well-trained therapist who understands the unique impacts of culture, environment, and systems on people's lives. I have been mentored by therapists world renowned for their work in anxiety, addiction, and groups. I believe in the power of hope and the concept of resiliency.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which has been shown to be the most effective psychotherapy there is for most problem areas. I was trained by some of the therapists who developed CBT for specific problems (i.e., anxiety disorders such as Panic Disorder, PTSD, and Social Anxiety). I also teach a college course on CBT to graduate students who are training to be therapists themselves.
