Dr. Jennifer Guttman, PsyD is a clinical psychologist and cognitive-behaviorist, with over 20 years of experience in the field of mental health. With a Doctorate in psychology, Dr. Guttman provides psychological services to over 120 clients at her private practices in New York City and Connecticut.
Specializing in mindfulness, cognitive-behavior therapy and co-dependency for children, adolescents and adults, Dr. Guttman has the ability to connect with all of her patients, in a way that produces positive results. Her therapeutic approach means she is able to positively impact individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, obsessions, compulsions, phobias, post-traumatic stress, dysregulated moods and delusional thinking.
Dr. Guttman’s clients come to her because she is really tough and gets results. “I’m tough and direct and it comes from a place of genuine support. And I never forget what a person tells me in a session, even after years, despite not taking notes,” says Dr. Guttman.
Growing up, she watched the healthcare system fail extended family, which is what inspired her to dedicate her life work towards helping those suffering from psychological distress. Her private practice opens the doors and welcomes “anyone who feels they haven’t been successful in treatment before and are willing to do hard work.”
Passionate about her work and patients, Jennifer thrives working with complicated clients and enjoys getting people to love themselves. After working in the industry for over two decades, one of Dr, Guttman’s greatest joys is seeing the rehabilitation of a client's issues all the way through, from beginning to resolution.
Published in the area of cognitive-behavior therapy and anger control for adolescents, Dr. Guttman has been quoted in the New York Times and has appeared as a guest on both radio and TV shows. She has lectured around the country on effective cognitive-behavioral techniques for treating mental health issues, and also mentors students in the doctoral program, at Long Island University.
When Dr. Guttman isn’t tending to patients, she can be found traveling around the world with her two children or enjoying a show at the theater.
