Professional statement

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.

Dr. Richlin sees clients in his mass-transit accessible Brookline MA office or via tele-health. For some clients, particularly teens or young adults, he may also offer walking visits around nearby Jamaica Pond.

Message to clients

Whether you are a teen, college student, or adult, you can expect that your treatment will begin with me listening carefully to understand your strengths, challenges, goals, and core values.

Once I have a sense of both who you are and who you want to be, I listen for the coping strategies or life lessons that you have relied on to get you where you are. Our pain can often be located in the gap between who we aspire to be and the choices we make that are in conflict with these core values. I use my 20 plus years experience and advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Family Systems Theory to help you develop new life skills. Together we identify, celebrate, and reinforce your existing healthy coping skills, learn and practice new ones, and gently let go of those that are not really helping you meet your life goals. 

You can expect that I will craft a therapeutic response that is unique to your needs, that I will be challenging and directive but also supportive and kind. and that if you work hard and commit to the process you will experience positive growth and change.

My greatest joy as a therapist is to see clients make progress towards their life goals.
