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 get to where s(he) wants to go in this great adventure called life. My areas of expertise are ADDICTIONS (e.g. substances, sex, gambling, video games, cellphones, social media, and internet), ANXIETY, CHILDHOOD and ADOLESCENCE, COLLEGE students, RELATIONSHIPS, TRAUMA, GROUPS, and COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY.

Imagine yourself as a writer, carefully crafting the story of your life. What important events and experiences stand out, and what effect does your supporting cast have on you? Is your story unfolding the way you want it to? For most of us, the answers to these questions aren't always clear. We're often too entrenched in our own story to be our own author. Experiences such as developing a more loving relationship with yourself or fostering authentic relationships with family or friends, can be challenging.

If you are someone who wants to engage in a journey of self improvement and feels stuck in their current life situation you are not alone. I work with people who want to live a different version of their life but may feel there is no way out. Sometimes people's self-esteem get knocked down along the way. It is often hard to do this alone and you may only need some guidance or motivation to help and sometimes you need more assistance and insight. I believe everyone has the answer inside of them and they are the experts of themselves. I will facilitate change with you, not for you. You are stronger than you know.

My ideal "client" is a relationship that is looking to grow beyond what has been happening, learning new ways to interact and healthier ways to open up and share who we are as people. My couples and families want to build on the relationships that they already have established and want to feel strengthened in their belief in one another and themselves. Communication skills and how to connect more authentically are important goals for my clients to work on.

Are you having difficulty in your relationships and wondering, "how do I make things better?" Are you experiencing a loss of self, feeling confused and/or depressed? Is it difficult to identify your feelings? Have your feelings become too painful to experience on your own? It is only natural to want to avoid feelings that are painful. It is our basic human instinct to avoid anything that is painful especially emotional pain. Unfortunately, avoiding pain results in maladaptive behavior and difficulties within relationships. Avoiding feelings can result in feeling numb and/or loss of self.

As a parent you want to help them but they don’t really seem to be letting you in and the problem just continues. There’s nothing worse than being alone with a problem. This can cause a change in relationships, worry, tension and preoccupation for the child and others around them.

I had stopped seeing children for a while because I had planned to move, but have changed plans, so I'm seeing children again. As to the kind of therapy I do, I don't try to use the same type of therapy for everybody because every person is different.
