About Dr. Blaustein
Dr. Lia Blaustein is a postdoctoral fellow with experience providing therapy to adolescents and adults from a wide range of backgrounds and a variety of clinical presentations, including anxiety disorders, depression, adjustment disorders, PTSD, trauma, grief and loss, end of life concerns, and other family, relationship, or marital challenges.
