About Sarah Herzog, Ph.D.

Starting therapy is a significant step toward self-discovery and meaningful change, however daunting. My aim is to provide an empathetic, warm, and non-judgmental space so that we can navigate this process with openness and curiosity. Together, we will seek to understand the internal obstacles and conflicts that contribute to emotional suffering or interfere with your ability to live up to your goals and values. We will work collaboratively to enhance your sense of connectedness, comfort, and joy in your relationships with family and friends, professional life, and in your own company.

My Approach:

I practice from an integrative psychodynamic perspective and draw on techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based approaches, relational psychotherapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to best tailor the treatment to your particular goals and needs. My approach is to primarily focus on the present, with an eye for understanding how past experiences shape our current realities and ways of being in the world. I specialize in the treatment of trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, and interpersonal and personality-related difficulties. My clinical experience includes working with clients diverse with respect to gender identity, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, religion, immigration status, and socioeconomic backgrounds; and I am committed to fostering an affirming, safe, and culturally sensitive therapeutic environment.

Professional Background:

I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology at The New School in New York City, where my research focused on the impact of trauma and early adversity on the brain and body in adulthood. My experience includes individual/group psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessment in hospital-based, community, and college settings, including Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine, Beth Israel Medical Center, Brooklyn College, and Lenox Hill Hospital. I completed my predoctoral internship at the Connecticut VA Healthcare System, West Haven (VACHS) with a concentration in treatment of PTSD and trauma-related symptoms. In addition to my clinical practice as a licensed psychologist, I currently work as a research scientist at Columbia University’s Department of Psychiatry, where I study the role of emotion regulation in depression and suicidal thoughts and behavior.
