Dr. Andrew Lima is a Psychologist located in Chester, NJ. Dr. Lima supports clients across the age span and through many diverse situations. For his child and adolescent clients, Dr. Lima provides a safe space to talk about anxieties, low self-esteem, and behavioral issues like school refusal. Many of his adult clients come to Dr. Lima for support through chronic pain or illness, relationship conflicts, anxiety, depression, anger management issues, addiction, and more. Dr. Lima’s goal is to help clients remove any roadblocks that are in their way to feeling balanced, healthy, and grounded.
Dr. Lima’s approach to therapy begins with a warm, direct conversation about the client’s background and what brought them to therapy. He then collaborates with the client to draw up an individualized treatment plan. Dr. Lima uses several therapy modalities in his work with clients, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based therapy, biofeedback training, and motivational interviewing. Clients learn how to become more attuned to their bodies and their minds, which can be helpful for them as they learn to cope more effectively with distress. They’ll also learn how to ignore the cognitive distortions that can lead to low self-esteem or conflicts with others.
Dr. Lima earned his PhD from Albizu University, Miami. He trained as a Health Psychologist, which gives him expertise in supporting those who are going through or previously went through medical treatment. He empowers clients to recognize their own strengths and live authentically in their daily lives.
