Professional statement

Dr. Rachael Felsenfeld is a licensed psychologist who provides clinical services in the states of New Jersey and New York. She has been working in the field since 2001 and has many years of experience providing supportive, individual therapy and comprehensive evaluation. She specializes in work with individuals who suffer from mood disorders, relationship issues, work stress, adjustment difficulties, and chronic medical conditions. She provides services to an aging population.

Dr. Felsenfeld feels strongly that a supportive therapeutic relationship is essential to self-growth. Her therapeutic approach is nonjudgmental and empathic. Therapeutic relationships are helpful to develop a fuller understanding of self and relationships that can facilitate change outside of therapy in many aspects of life.

Dr. Felsenfeld provides specialized evaluations, including neuropsychological evaluation for neurological conditions (including, but not limited to, mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and traumatic brain injuries) and academic needs. Referrals to other professionals are provided for collaborative and specialized diagnostic and clinical care. Assessments are focused on individuals who are 16 years or older.

Dr. Felsenfeld offers telehealth services for individuals in New Jersey and New York and in person services out of her office in New Jersey.
