Dr. Lianna Trubowitz is a post-doctoral psychologist at the Williamsburg Therapy Group who provides both short and long-term psychotherapy to adolescents and adults on a wide range of mental health concerns. She has extensive experience in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, and trauma symptoms, as well as those adjusting to change and life transitions and interpersonal and relationship challenges. She also specializes in working with those who are managing physical conditions and illnesses.
Her integrative, client-centered, relational-focused approach to therapy draws from psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, mindful, and emotionally focused therapies. She aims to work collaboratively with each individual to determine what is most effective for them. Dr. Trubowitz’s goal is to work with individuals to uncover and make room for their most fulfilled and empowered selves. To this aim, she emphasizes an understanding of current difficulties as they relate to past experiences and relationships. Through this understanding, individuals develop a deeper self-understanding as well as establish more meaningful relationships. In addition, she is also highly skilled in here-and-now interventions to address current stressors and challenges for more immediate relief and change.
Dr. Trubowitz’s style is empathic, warm, collaborative, open and non-judgmental. She provides a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, striving to build a strong trust and alliance with each individual. Dr. Trubowitz also practices cultural humility, and approaches therapy through a multicultural lens.
