About Adam O'Brien
Reducing symptoms of stress, anxiety, panic, and depression are the main reasons why people reach out for therapy. This is more than possible with healing. I am a certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) (Approved Consultant) and Brainspotting, which are trauma resolution therapies that allow you to heal your past so you can move forward in new and healthy ways. 3 Locations: Albany, Chatham, and Hudson NY
Areas of expertise: general mental health conditions, trauma (PTSD), stress, substance/behavioral addictions, dissociation, anxiety, panic, anger, loss, problem behaviors, spiritual crises, integrative medicine, neurofeedback, and psychedelic integration. OASAS Approved provider of DWI Assessments, Evaluations, and treatment. Certified Anger Management Specialist.
Past experiences impact how we greet life today and when that is not happening as we would want we often feel helpless and hopeless. This is not permanent, although it can feel like it is. The eclectic therapeutic experience is an important element to me but my approach is also grounded in evidence-based practices.
