Announcement icon For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, I am only seeing clients online with video (Zoom) or by phone.
Do you want to better understand yourself and your relationships? Are you feeling stuck and unsure of how to move forward? Therapy can provide a place where you can freely express yourself and explore, without judgment, the obstacles that are preventing you from having a more satisfied life. I enjoy helping clients learn to listen to all of their feelings and let go of old patterns that once served them but no longer do. I offer support and challenge through the therapy relationship as people face their personal truths.
I have worked as a psychologist for 30 years in Indiana, first at the IUP Counseling Center and and now solely in private practice. I work with adults and adolescents dealing with a range of issues including relationships, gender and sexual identity, abuse and trauma, grief and loss, transitions, anxiety, and depression.
I work with individuals and groups; depending on your need, our work may be short-or long-term.

Rita G Drapkin's Groups

Mixed Gender Adult Psychotherapy Group

I will be starting a long-term, adult psychotherapy group in Pittsburgh on Tuesday February 4th. Participation in a therapy group can lessen the pain of isolation, increase your social comfort, and deepen your connections with others. Group can provide support and a range of perspectives as well as help you develop a greater understanding of your patterns of interacting, your impact on others, and others’ impact on you.
