Dr. Aviva Gitlin is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and certified Psychoanalyst who welcomes couples and individuals to her practice in White Plains, Westchester New York.
Many of her clients start therapy when the ways in which they are acting, behaving, and living in the world are no longer working well for them. Dr. Gitlin believes that psychotherapy is all about becoming conscious of who one truly is, and how one's actions impact the world.
Therapy with Dr. Gitlin is an experience in which clients can focus on feelings that keep them feeling, stuck and on those that help them grow. It is a place where clients are able to find their own creative solution on to how best to live life. She looks forward to welcoming you either as an individual client or with your partner.
