I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in psychodynamic and relationship-based approaches to working with children, adults, parents, and families.

I help individuals and families develop deeper, more meaningful connections, foster respectful and emotionally secure relationships, reduce suffering, and increase effectiveness and confidence. I have a particular passion for helping parents find their inner confidence and raise kids who are authentic, confident, resilient, and kind.

I equip parents with the tools to truly understand the building blocks of child development and how secure relationships form and thrive. With this knowledge, parents are able to develop their own personal parenting frameworks so they can respond confidently and effectively to any challenge that comes along, trusting fully in themselves and in their children.

I am the co-founder of Upshur Bren Psychology Group in Pelham, NY where our team of highly experienced and attuned clinicians treat parents, children and families. Go to to learn more and connect with me on Instagram @drsarahbren.
