Professional statement

Benjamin Hamburger is a Licensed Psychologist practicing virtually in both California and New York. Dr. Hamburger works with individual patients aged 12-55 who are dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, and ADHD. Dr. Hamburger also works with couples and parents.

Many people who see Dr. Hamburger are dealing with issues of attention that can impact their performance at work or school, their interpersonal relationships, as well as their own self-esteem and anxiety. His clients typically are dealing with an overwhelming amount of stress and are looking for tools, skills, and guidance geared specifically for them. Dr. Hamburger's treatment style focuses on each individual person's needs (What might work for one person might not be right for another). Dr. Hamburger uses a skills-based approach, combined with mindfulness practices, while also making sure to process deeper issues for those who want to explore larger patterns in their lives.

In addition to his individual work, Dr. Hamburger works with couples and parents. As a couples therapist, Dr. Hamburger tries to help both members of the couple to identify their own emotions while also recognizing the emotions of their partner. Through this emotion-focused lens, both partners can feel heard and that can lead to more productive conversations. When working with parents, Dr. Hamburger provides parenting training for parents who are dealing with behavioral issues, inattention, and just overall feelings of being overwhelmed.

Dr. Hamburger also provides neuropsychological assessments geared toward identifying attention disorders and learning disabilities. People who come to Dr. Hamburger for an assessment are often seeking accommodations at school or at work.

Dr. Hamburger's practice is fully remote which offers flexibility and convenience to you. He is currently accepting new patients and provides a 15-minute consultation to ensure that it is a good fit.


Message to clients

First, I want to give you credit for taking this first step in looking for a therapist. It is not an easy thing to do and you are doing it!

I believe therapy is a place where you don't feel judged and can focus on improving yourself. I will provide that space for you along with a number of skills and tools that can help you cope with life's challenges. As a therapist, I believe my role is to provide individualized care to my patients. I make sure to meet my patients where they are and work collaboratively with them to solve the problems that face them. I am very honest and open in therapy and will often challenge you in a way that is supportive and positive.

My goal for each of my patients is growth, I want to get you to a point where you are able to succeed on your own. I want to help you feel more grounded, positive, and focused on success.
