David N. Mittelman, Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist, I have over 25 years of experience doing psychotherapy/counseling with adults and kids. I frequently work with people struggling with depression, anxiety/worry, anger/agitation, aging & health issues, job stress, divorce & grief/loss, sexual concerns, behavioral problems, and spiritual or religious crises. Although originally trained in psychoanalysis, my practice is integrative and holistic, and I often discuss meditation, yoga, and general health with my clients. It’s impossible to be human and not to suffer at times. I view depression and anxiety as largely universal for most people, in contrast to an “illness” in the conventional sense. It’s an honor for me to witness the suffering and joys of my clients, and to have a role in their healing and improved adaptation. Outside my psychology practice, I enjoy my friends and family, bicycling, nature, playing guitar, and performing as a singer-songwriter.
