Happiness is your birthright and in our work together, I can help you with immediate as well as long standing issues such as developing and maintaining healthy and satisfying relationships, reducing stress or anxiety, improving your sleep, and reaching personal and professional goals. Enduring difficult times in our lives can be daunting unless we have the proper support. I offer short and long-term treatment for adults, couples, children, adolescents and parents. My practice emphasizes the resolution to everyday problems and opportunities for personal transformation.
An experienced psychologist and psychoanalyst with post-doctoral training in individual, group and couples psychotherapy, I strive to create a trusting, collaborative relationship with clients. Together we can develop an understanding of the emotional issues that hold you back, and uncover inner strengths to help you relate better to others.
My style is warm, active and challenging. I value psychotherapy as a growth producing process between two people which may be an empowering adventure. Out of this process, you will learn a great deal about yourself which you could take from the office and expand to make your life more meaningful.

Melinda Blitzer's Groups

Relationships Group

The goal of this group is to help you understand interpersonal relationships and get more of the gratification and intimacy you want from others. As a member of this group, you will find out how you affect and are affected by other people, learn to improve communication and interpersonal skills and cultivate more nurturing relationships. Together, we will explore your psychological development and examine how you relate to other members of the group working in the 'here-and-now'. This group is ongoing and is open to adult men and women of all ages.

More about this group

Adolescent Growth Group

One of the most powerful ways to develop psychologically is in a professionally led group for teenagers. Here they can learn to observe their strengths and weaknesses, and discover alternative ways to overcome their hurdles. Finding one's voice in group becomes a template for life. Feedback from other teenagers holds a great deal of weight - this improves self-reflection skills which lead to stronger friendships, less family conflict, better self esteem, and improved school performance. In a word - maturity. Groups are nurturing and non-critical and this helps teenagers to feel at ease. Open to 14 to 18 year-olds. A few spaces remain.
