Amy Sgrenci Langsam, PsyD
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from American University. I earned my Masters Degree and Doctorate in Psychology (PsyD) from La Salle University with a concentration in health psychology. During my training I worked at several hospitals and college counseling centers, including the University of Pennsylvania, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, & Drexel University. I completed my Pre-Doctoral Internship in the Eating Disorder Unit at the University Medical Center of Princeton. After completing my doctorate, I gained more clinical experience at The Renfrew Center and Women’s program at Princeton House Behavioral Health. I am a member of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who treats children, adolescents, and adults. I specialize in treatment for women and adolescents who struggle with eating disorders, trauma, substance abuse, relationship difficulties, anxiety, and depression. I believe the most important element of effective psychotherapy is developing a trusting relationship between the client and therapist. My approach to therapy is collaborative, supportive, and empathetic. I am intensively trained in Dialetical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and often utilize this approach in my treatment. Additionally, I integrate Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and client-centered interventions into my practice that are empirically supported to provide symptom relief. Together I work with my clients to foster insight into their own maladaptive thinking patterns and teach them skills that enable them to facilitate healthy behaviors. I tailor all treatment plans for each individual and utilize interventions that best match my client's needs.
