Avis Pitkow, Psy.D.
Dr. Pitkow earned her Master’s Degree and her Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology from Immaculata University. She has a diverse background having worked with outpatient, inpatient, substance abuse and dual diagnosis populations. In addition to working in the field for close to 20 years, Dr. Pitkow brings essential life experiences to the work. Dr. Pitkow believes that the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship established between the client and the therapist, without which very little is accomplished. To that end she aims to create a safe and warm environment where the relationship can develop. She states she is not a “one size fits all” type therapist, therefore integrative, psychodynamic, eclectic and a touch of CBT would be good descriptors of her style. She believes in meeting clients where they are and going from there and is particularly fond of working with people who are in early sobriety having difficulty learning to “live life on life’s terms.“  She appreciates working with people who have felt stuck and are ready to do the work to make some changes. It is rewarding to be there with them to assist in that process.
