Dr. Katrina Zaleski is a licensed clinical psychologist and adjunct professor of psychology specializing in anxiety and depression in children and adults. Being a specialist in anxiety and depression requires a clinician who is knowledgeable with experience, empathy, and genuine concern. Staying up to date on new research, knowing how to apply different therapeutic techniques, and being familiar with the unique struggles individuals face who have anxiety and depression, are essential in getting good care.
Dr. Zaleski believes in working together so that your life is balanced and your relationships thrive by focusing on problem solving, creating space for self-care, learning emotional regulation skills for negative thoughts and feelings, and discussing how to create and maintain healthy boundaries. All this happens in a compassionate and confidential space where you can learn more about yourself and what you need in order to create emotional balance.
You are unique and so are the concerns that brought you to therapy.
