Dr. Andrew Colitz
As a clinical psychologist, I hope to establish a cooperative and safe environment to work with individuals, couples, and families – one which offers reassurance to those courageous enough to seek therapy and are likely feeling overwhelmed by the process. I tailor therapy and discuss approaches that meet your needs (both short-term and long-term goals) at a pace and depth in which you are comfortable. I hope to help expand the richness of your emotional experiences, generate and evaluate alternative solutions with respect to the difficulties you face, and heighten your level of self-awareness. By increasing ones capacity to stay with rather than avoid difficult emotions, I hope to give voice to your experiences and become a partner in your experience. I believe these approaches serve to deepen the therapeutic relationship, which ultimately leads to shifts in how you relate to others and yourself.
I received my BA from Brown University and a PhD from Long Island University, Brooklyn. I completed my internship at Lenox Hill Hospital. I work primarily from a psychodynamic and systemic-based approach.
