I’ve spent years teaching people how to be comfortable with themselves.

By becoming more aware of the choices available, as well as the means to employ them, you will have an opportunity to learn strategies to more effectively cope with the issues you’re facing. Stress, Anxiety and Depression are problems many people deal with, and left unchecked, they may blossom into other issues. I have helped people learn various ways to cope with these issues and have done this successfully for 30 years.

Hi, I’m Dr. Mary Resnick.

Finding a therapist can be a daunting task, it might mean revealing a side of yourself you’d rather keep hidden. It can be scary to trust a new person and not know how you’ll be judged, understood or heard. I’ve been in the mental health field for thirty-five years and during that time, I’ve grown through the experience I’ve gained with my patients. Watching people heal and grow has taught me which treatments work. It gives me great pleasure to see my patients leave feeling better about themselves. In my practice we’ll discuss your reactions to events  and how those events make you feel physically and emotionally. I’m here for you during times of distress and will help guide you through them. We will use the present to get you to a more fulfilling future, where you will be prepared to live life in a healthy and happier way. Call me and let’s see if we’re a good match.

Depression can be a very lonely path, knowing you’re not alone is the place to begin healing. One of the most profound ways I’ve found I can help is to let a person feel they have been finally seen and heard. I will be on the journey with you.


Fear of the next moment can be overwhelming and learning how to ‘stay in the moment’ can create a peaceful place in your mind. Learning to trust those uncomfortable or painful moments will pass is something we’ll work on together.


Together we will work on how to make stress work for you. You will see stress not as a negative force but a reminder that we need to be aware of what is around us. Our goal is to learn to use stress’ cues in a positive way.

Today’s world is full of stress and anxiety and waking to it each day can be overwhelming. Try something different. I invite you to take a few moments to contact me so we can speak and see if we fit. I look forward to hearing from you.

  • Types of Therapy I Offer

    Positive Psychology

    Unlike traditional psychology that focuses more on the causes and symptoms of mental illnesses and emotional disturbances, positive psychology emphasizes traits, thinking patterns, behaviors, and experiences that are forward-thinking and can help improve the quality of a person’s day-to-day life. These may include optimism, spirituality, hopefulness, happiness, creativity, perseverance, justice, and the practice of free will. It is an exploration of one’s strengths, rather than one’s weaknesses. The goal of positive psychology is not to replace those traditional forms of therapy that center on negative experiences, but instead to expand and give more balance to the therapeutic process.

    Attachment-based therapy is form of therapy that applies to interventions or approaches based on attachment theory, which explains how the relationship a parent has with its child influences development.

    Life coaching is an increasingly popular profession that has no specific licensing or academic requirements. Though psychologists also often consider themselves life coaches, these therapists don't focus on treating mental illness. Instead, they help individuals realize their goals in work and in life. An executive coach, for example, may be enlisted to help a chief executive become a better manager, while a "love" coach may map out a plan to help a client find romantic fulfillment.

    Cognitive Behavioral

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments. CBT has been clinically proven to help clients in a relatively short amount of time with a wide range of disorders, including depression and anxiety.

    Many practitioners take an eclectic approach to therapy, drawing upon various aspects of cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic methods to create their own custom-made approach. Such therapists often work with their clients to create a treatment plan that encompasses different techniques to best address the client's particular problems and to appeal to their sensibility.

    For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

    Psychoanalysis is an in-depth form of therapy. The client learns what conscious and unconscious wishes drive their patterns of thinking and behavior on the theory that, by making the unconscious conscious, they will make more educated choices over how they think and act. Traditional psychoanalysts may treat clients intensively but reveal little of their own views or feelings during therapy. Modern psychoanalysts may treat less frequently and take a more interactive approach.

    Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
