Depression, anxiety, loneliness, professional dissatisfaction, the aftermath of trauma - these are symptoms of something deeper calling out for help. Working together, we can learn what stands between you and emotional balance, happiness and strength. Cultivating these positive states is a wonderful way to live! I also work with couples to identify and remedy the root causes of conflict and dissatisfaction. This might include re-opening long-closed channels of communication; revitalizing emotional and sexual intimacy; and learning more deeply what each of you wants and needs from the other.

Empathy is a must! My work is grounded in the therapeutic relationship as a space that, first of all needs to be an empathic place, where you as a client feel seen, heard, understood and supported as you tap into yourself, what drew you into therapy at this time & where you want to understand and grow. I draw from intuition and insightful engagement utilizing a strong theoretical background, tools and psychological understanding to empower you as you move into your heart for healing, find your hope and dreams, and step into greater self-understanding, self-care, connections with love, work & life & overall wellbeing.

I support my clients in three key areas: (1) improving their confidence and self-esteem; (2) enhancing their relationships; and (3) effectively navigating career and workplace challenges. As both a therapist and executive coach for 20+ years, I've intensively studied many approaches to psychotherapy and human development to be as helpful and effective as I can. Which of these approaches we'd use will depend on your unique needs and what we decide together best fits for you. I’m focused on significant progress in the short term and even more change and development over time. My approach overall is warm, accepting and personal.

Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.

Therapy is a collaborative deep dive into what holds you back, what keeps you stuck, what triggers you, and what excites you. It is an exploration of what it means to be human, to be you, and to be in relation with others. Though people come to me for different reasons, I’ve found that the shared commonality is a feeling of disconnection; disconnection from a sense of purpose, a loved one, career, community or even just from oneself. Our work is about helping you recreate connection in these areas so that you can live your most vibrant life.

Did you grow up with Asian strict parents who couldn't be okay with honoring your opinion and feelings? Do you find yourself avoiding conflict or hiding your “No’s” with a smile? I help high-achievers from culturally diverse backgrounds develop stronger self-acceptance and create a strategy to manage their negative inner talk. Life of wondering if you are good enough can cause dread and feelings of being in a rut. When you work with me, you address your fears and insecurities at your own pacing and pick up techniques to support your overwhelm. I offer a warm sense of humor, listen in a non-judgmental and caring manner.

I believe in an integral, post-modern approach to therapy that builds on the successes of conventional therapeutic methods and practices and incorporates understanding of trauma, social justice theory, somatics, attachment, neuro-diversity and more. I work in a very somatic, relational way to address issues ranging from trauma to anxiety to concerns about the world.

My name is Christopher Brunell and I have been a licensed clinical psychologist since 1992. I am as passionate, if not more than when I started my career in the early 1980s. I help people with anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, marital issues, panic disorders, spirituality, trauma, PTSD, and more. I employ an integrative approach using psychoanalysis, behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, EMDR, and more. I look holistically at the mind, body, emotions, and spirit to establish goals to alleviate suffering. This journey is different for everyone, and I embrace the challenge to find this balance with those that I work with.

I believe that therapy can be a catalyst not only for insight, but also for transformation. Life can be challenging, and at times, despite our best efforts we can feel stuck or lost. I strive to provide a calm and compassionate space where you can get in touch with what matters most to you, and use that as a guide to making changes in your life. I offer specific strategies and tools to help you change your relationship to difficult thoughts and feelings, and work collaboratively with you to take steps toward a life that is full of vitality and personal fulfillment. My style is warm and genuine, interactive, and culturally-sensitive.

My diverse training enables me to provide the particular therapy that meets your needs. My work is informed by modern, evidence-based methods of psychotherapy as well as spiritual wisdom and practices from Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism.

Your pain is not your destiny, but an invitation to turn towards and respect your deeper experience. Early wounds and trauma bind up our energy and cut off access to our aliveness. As an expert in soul loss, I can help you retrieve your energy, heal suffering and rewire old patterns, so you can more fully embody who you were meant to be. I use a mind-body approach (somatic experiencing/ gestalt) with a relational lens (psychodynamic/ Jungian) and energy healing. If you feel stuck after years of talk therapy, I can help. I see children, adolescents, adults, couples & families and I practice online in Manhattan and California.

Are you asking, How can I find love? or, What is missing in my relationships? Are you stuck in complaining and blaming, or avoiding and withholding? Are you noticing your relationship struggles make you feel lonelier rather than more open to each other? I provide an environment of safety where you may explore how you are stuck and how your persistent conflicts spoil your potential for intimacy. Tracking the repetitive patterns of communication, and the stories which confirm your most negative beliefs, I will strengthen your awareness to the influences that affect whether you keep repeating old patterns or open to real change.

Therapy provides such a rich opportunity for growth and learning, helping persons to recover from the aftermaths of trauma, abuse and loss, meet the hardships of their lives and thrive. In times like this, with so much anxiety about our collective welfare, it can be an invaluable lifeline. In response to the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we are now offering teletherapy (therapy by phone and online by video) for all our clients, whether new or established. Also called telehealth or telebehavioral health, teletherapy can provide vital care and support to individuals, couples and families.

I honor the uniqueness of each individual & work in a way that meets your current needs (whether you are moving through a crisis situation, having relationship issues, needing help managing anxiety & depression, or healing from trauma).
