Professional statement

Dr. Priyanka Upadhyaya is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who welcomes individual adults across the lifespan in-person at her practice in New Jersey. Dr. Upadhyaya also sees clients from New Jersey, New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania for remote sessions. 

Dr. Upadhyaya works with individuals often grappling with anxiety, depression, burnout and stress, which may lead to trouble concentrating, a general sense of irritability, or issues in their interpersonal relationships. She also sees clients who have experienced trauma or difficult life experiences, and life transitions like loss of a loved one, a job or position, illness, break-ups or divorce.

In her work with couples, Dr. Upadhyaya welcomes clients from all backgrounds, both those who are in committed relationships and looking to resolve issues, as well as those who are separating but wish to gain insight before they do so. She also helps those who are navigating issues like infidelity and building a blended family, as well as couples who are generally unsure of the next steps in their relationship.

Dr. Upadhyaya invites you to schedule a 15-minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and assess fit.


Message to clients

Sometimes, it takes life getting hard, for someone to come to therapy. Sometimes people wait for a while before they feel, they have to talk to someone. You probably have tried all of your familiar coping tools but may be feeling stuck and alone, searching for relief and support. I believe in your capacities and resilience to navigate life's challenges, but I'd like to help you not go at life alone. Both from personal and professional experience I know how therapy can be a space, rich with opportunities for healing, self-discovery, expression and personal growth. Trying it with the right person can be one of the most valuable investments in yourself, your relationships, health, and your loved ones. In our work together, you and I will be partners; the kind of team that can help you create a version of yourself and life that is meaningful, purpose-driven, and aligned with your capabilities.
