About Lauren Sweitzer, Psy.D.

We are all subject to the unending demands of daily life and it is how we respond to stressors that can either help or hinder our ability to cope and connect meaningfully with ourselves and others. In my practice, I utilize a strengths-based approach, acknowledging that our experiences are shaped by our unique histories and best efforts to navigate challenges. My role is to provide a collaborative environment to help you develop greater self-awareness, more effective coping strategies, and live in accordance with your values. Within an atmosphere of kindness and support, every individual possesses the capacity to achieve their goals and lead a fulfilling life.

My Approach:

My therapeutic approach is integrative, I draw primarily from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), attachment science, and contemporary psychodynamic approaches. This tailored approach will help you reshape your thinking, challenge preconceptions, and transform relational patterns, ultimately reducing self-defeating behaviors and paving the way for lasting personal growth. I have specialized training in emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples and trauma treatment, including cognitive processing therapy. I am experienced in working with adults and couples from diverse backgrounds with concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship and intimacy issues.


Professional Background:

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Global Health and Health Policy from Harvard University. I earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University. During my clinical training, I held positions at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone in the Autism Spectrum Disorder Service, Montefiore Medical Center’s Supporting Healthy Relationships Program and HERO Dad’s Program, as well as The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Center and The Parnes Clinic. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the VA New York Harbor Healthcare System, Manhattan campus.
