Andrew Barist, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
I work primarily with adults 18-40, especially professionals in business, technology, law and medicine as well as creative fields including theater and music. I also work frequently work with undergraduate and postgraduate students. My clients are people seeking help with depression, anxiety, family conflict, relationship issues and life transitions.
My approach is primarily psychodynamic and attachment based. This means that our focus is usually on understanding the emotions and behavioral patterns underlying the issues that you bring to therapy and primarily looking at them through the lense of relationships.
Therapy, to me, is an exploratory process that does not necessarily fix problems or offer concrete solutions. Rather, it is an opportunity to try to better understand yourself and the world around you.
