About Jamie Gardella, Ph.D.

I strive to create a soft place to land when life feels overwhelming. It’s both brave and natural to seek support, whether you’ve struggled for a while or have recently experienced a major change. Maybe you’d like to process a sudden loss or life transition that feels too hot to touch alone. Or, you may have the desire to understand more entrenched dynamics that influence your relationship with yourself and others. Not uncommonly, you may feel anxious or depressed but aren’t sure why. Regardless of what brings you here, I will offer a safe, empathic space with active interventions that are designed to reduce your distress and help you to cultivate a deeper connection with yourself and your values.

My Approach:

I work using a warm, non-judgmental approach that integrates the principles of psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and somatic techniques. I tailor my approach to your needs and goals for therapy; there’s no one size fits all! In my work experience, I have treated patients with chronic and acute trauma exposure, mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar), and personality disorders. I also have experience with helping patients navigate relationship problems, challenging family dynamics, and issues around various aspects of identity. I have worked with patients of all ages who have a diverse array of racial/ethnic, sexual, and gender identities.


Professional Background:

I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology with a concentration in substance abuse counseling from The New School for Social Research. I have experience with conducting psychotherapy and psychological assessment in a variety of outpatient and acute settings, including Lenox Hill Hospital, The New School’s Student Health Services, Realization Center, BronxCare Health System, and Jacobi Medical Center. I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children throughout my clinical experiences.

My research focuses on the social function of memory. Specifically, I seek to understand the ways in which greater knowledge of the lived experiences of family members, intimate partners, and close friends bears on psychological functioning and relationship quality. During my graduate education, I examined this relationship in socially marginalized and trauma-exposed populations, including the LGBTQ+ community and U.S. service members.
