Dr. Adam Formal

Psychologist (Licensed in NY, NJ, DC; PSYPACT Authorization)

You may be at a crossroads but are unsure about what to do or how to make changes in your life. I am passionate about helping people work toward their best version of themselves and I hope to help you do that. 

When working together, I’ll get to know you and your concerns. We’ll look at your situation the way you see it. Together we will explore what shapes your current situation and what it might look like to maintain current life patterns versus trying out new ones

I will work to help you feel like you are not alone and that there might be new ways of looking at your current struggles and life.
