Dr. Livia Freier is a Clinical Psychologist in Rhode Island who specializes in anxiety and depression, as well as ADHD, adjustment difficulties, eating disorders, and couples/marriage conflicts. Additionally, Dr. Freier works with clients who would like to gain a strong sense of self and build self-confidence both long-term and situational. Her practice is open to individuals, couples, and families. Dr. Freier also focuses on working with college students and their families. Her neuroscience research is affiliated with Brown University and her practice is located within close walking distance of the Brown University campus and RISD. Clients can book in-person appointments as well as teletherapy sessions.
Clients who visit Dr. Freier are often navigating a life transition, such as personal, academic, or professional challenges, relationship conflict, or adjusting to an ADHD diagnosis. It is her aim to help clients get to a place where they are effectively using coping strategies, improve existing relationship dynamics, and build self-resilience in order to foster lasting, impactful change. She uses evidence-based interventions, including cognitive-behavioral techniques (such as CBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy, and neuroscience education. Facilitating an understanding of our behaviors, emotions, and relationships is the first step in identifying our needs as well as unhealthy patterns. Dr. Freier gives her patients the tools to externalize their emotions and set boundaries with compassion. Her academic background is in clinical psychology and neuroscience.
Prior to opening her private practice in Providence, Dr. Freier lived in the UK, Germany, and Spain. Sessions are offered in English, German, and Spanish. She looks forward to working with you. For more information please book a free phone consultation or visit the MindWell Psychology website.
