I am a passionate therapist who uses an eclectic mix of techniques tailored to fit each individual's needs. I am well versed in working with children, adolescents, and young adults struggling with a range of life stressors and transitions. Working at a child/adolescent outpatient unit, I bring a unique understanding to the complex ways in which family, peers, romantic relationships, and school dynamics interact and affect adolescents and young adults.
Working with a therapist that you trust can be a life changing experience. Are you having problems with a relationship or work, financial stress, substance abuse or another addiction? Or are you anxious, sad, or overwhelmed? Things can get better. One of my clients told me that my office was a sacred space. In this environment you may feel free to truly express yourself and face the problems that are bothering you. Some of my work has been with people who were in unhealthy relationships or exposed to trauma in their early years.

I am Liz Langell, Ph. D., a psychologist with postdoctoral training in clinical psychology and neuropsychology from New York City's Beth Israel Medical Center.
My training has been thorough, with exposure to many theories and styles of treatment. Years of teaching and supervising doctoral students have expanded my knowledge base.

I mainly determine this through collaborative discussion: I view psychotherapy as a partnership, and I am relatively active and open.
