He/Him/HisPsychologist, PsyD Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Dr. Andrew Richlin is a licensed Psychologist with 20 plus years experience treating teens, college students, and adults. Clients frequently seek him out with anxiety challenges, often triggered by significant life changes.
To help clients achieve their treatment goals Dr. Richlin integrates the evidence-based principals of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with a deep understanding of human development across the lifespan. He emphasizes the benefits of learning and practicing self-soothing strategies. Clients in his care report that with increased calm they find the clarity of mind to untangle many of the other challenges with which they have struggled.
You can expect that Dr. Richlin will communicate clearly, and that your treatment, or that of your child, will be gently directive and results oriented. Dr. Richlin balances an exploration of past trauma with an emphasis on skills building in the present. He listens carefully to his clients needs and crafts client-focused solutions specific to those challenges.
Doctor Richlin received his Doctorate in Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology. He received advanced training in child and family therapy at the Julia Ann Singer Center, Beverly Hills, CA, and completed a pre-doc in the college counseling department of Cal Poly Pomona. Prior to entering the mental health field he earned an MS degree in Deisgn from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn NY and worked for many years as an educator, illustrator, and furniture designer.
