Irit Felsen, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist

I work with individuals, families, couples, adults and adolescents.  My clinical services include individual psychotherapy, couples’ counseling, family therapy, and group psychotherapy.

My approach to treatment is based on the particular needs and the unique situation of each individual case.  My treatment approach is psychodynamic, and I use a variety of additional modalities for enhancing change in individual and couples. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Prolonged Exposure for reducing symptoms related to specific past traumatic experiences, and in the Imago Dialogue for working with couples.

Issues that I treat include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Marital preparedness
  • Marital issues
  • Divorce preparation
  • Restructuring life after divorce
  • Parenting issues
  • Parenting the special needs child
  • Loss and grief
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, acute or long-term
  • Effects of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress on the families of  affected individuals, including but not limited to military personnel returning from deployment
  • Adjustment to life transitions including, for example, childbirth, relocation, job loss, and issues related to immigration

As a trauma expert, I also provide on-site trauma intervention for Employee Assistance Programs for businesses and companies.
