Dr. Shari Goldstein is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Westport, CT who specializes in relationship issues, mood disorders, anxiety, and depression. Her practice is open to individual adults ages 20 and up, as well as couples.
Clients who visit Dr. Goldstein are often experiencing life transitions – whether those are external, such as navigating a relationship that’s in flux, or internal, like feeling lost in their overall career trajectory. Dr. Goldstein helps clients cut through any accompanying overwhelm with a gentle approach that blends insight-oriented therapies, such as psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis, with more skills-based components of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Dr. Goldstein’s approach is warm, welcome, and compassionate. Prior to entering private practice, she worked in public and private hospitals on both inpatient and outpatient units. She looks forward to working with you.
