"There is always a solution, always an answer, and always a better way of coping with life's situations." I know it may be difficult coping with the challenges and changes of life. However, there is always a way of relief. Sometimes we need help finding our way. I've had the privilege of assisting many in finding that way. Let's partner up and find the way that's right for you so that you can be anchored and unmovable as you go forward.

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 work with individuals to help them increase self-awareness and lead happier lives. My unique background makes me different than most therapists. In addition to being a licensed therapist, I have a PhD in Philosophy. As a therapist and life coach, I help individuals struggling in particular with relationships, codependency, sexual compulsivity, and substance/alcohol abuse. I also work with adult children of alcoholics, those who grew up in families where emotional chaos and parental addiction may affect their current lives. Unrecognized trauma can result from this. In addition, I work with gay individuals and couples.

As an experienced clinician I realize what it takes to reach out and decide it is time to seek assistance for a personal or family matter. Entering into counseling provides you an opportunity to overcome negative patterns of behavior and thinking, to foster a positive self-image, and to build fulfilling relationships with co-workers, partners, friends and family. To achieve your goals I utilize an individual approach that builds upon the strengths you already have and assist you to learn new ones. This is a collaborative process which is based on an understanding of your history and patterns, your strengths and personal goals.

Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you, especially now, can be extremely challenging! At the same time, that's exactly what I believe makes therapy effective, having a good working relationship between therapist and client. Perhaps you know what you're struggling with, but need a neutral, warm person to ask the right questions. I believe that the most important aspect of participating in therapy is that the client feels seen, understood, and supported. Whether your goals are to develop healthy relationships or work on coping skills for intense emotions, I hope to be able to be a guiding light on your own personal journey.
