Dr. Rebecca Harmon is a Clinical Psychologist who welcomes individuals to her practice in both New York State (with a base in Westchester County) and Connecticut. She helps her clients as they grapple with symptoms of depression and anxiety, particularly due to stressful life circumstances or challenging relationships. Dr. Harmon specializes in working with clients who are processing major life transitions, such as entering the workforce, transitioning into parenthood, and changing jobs or careers. She also works with new and expecting mothers through the challenges of pregnancy and parenthood.

Dr. Harmon received her master's and doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Yeshiva University’s Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, with concentrations in psychodynamic psychotherapy and family therapy. She also completed pre-doctoral externships at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, a pre-doctoral residency at Yale University’s School of Medicine, and a postdoctoral fellowship at Hartford Hospital’s Institute of Living. She received her BA in psychology from Haverford College.


Message to clients

Whether you have experienced a recent difficult situation in your life, or you are struggling with general overwhelming circumstances, therapy can help to alleviate your symptoms and allow you to cope more effectively. I work with individuals who are experiencing issues of adjustment, anxiety, and/or depression, particularly due to stressful life circumstances and transitions. These may include changes at work or school, family conflict, challenging relationships, or loss.

I work supportively and collaboratively with you to develop mutual goals and insight. I encourage you to be strength-focused, and empowered to lead your own recovery and take charge of your mental health and well-being.

My approach is interpersonally and relationally focused, and I am empathic, yet direct. My goal is to help you establish a favorable quality of life by reducing reactions to stressors and enhancing self-understanding.
