Dr. Matthew Steinfeld

Psychologist , PhD

(203) 916-0934
I work with people to understand how they can have more fulfilling, healthy, and happy lives, while honoring their needs and the wisdom underlying their choices. Along with joys and opportunity, life inevitably brings with it challenges, confusion, and hardships. Psychotherapy, as both a treatment and life-practice, can be invaluable in relating to these moments as opportunities for growth and positive change. I view treatment as a collaboration, based on a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship, tailored uniquely to each individual, to bringing about healing and new possibilities.
I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from The New School for Social Research in New York City, have been a Fellow of the American Psychoanalytic Association, and completed pre and postdoctoral fellowships in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine where I serve on its faculty.
