Pyschotherapy Services Andrea Leiman, Ph.D.

Dr. Leiman has closed her private practice in Maryland in anticipation of relocating to South Carolina. Before she relocates to South Carolina, she will be on sabbatical for several months. Should Dr. Leiman reestablish her practice, her website will be updated to reflect new information.

For the last 37 years, Dr. Leiman has provided individual, couple and family psychotherapy to children, teenagers and adults. She has extensive experience in treating depression, anxiety disorders, family relationship difficulties and academic and behavior disorders. She has been trained in a number of psychotherapeutic modalities, including cognitive and behavioral strategies, non-directive play therapy and couples therapy.

Dr. Leiman recognizes the critical role of the relationship between therapist and client. Issues of trust and empathy are vital to the progress of therapy, whether child, adolescent or adult. She appreciates the importance of establishing rapport and developing goals for each client specific to his or her individualized needs and concerns.

Dr. Leiman also specializes in working with children from 3 to 12 years old. Her ability to connect and engage children, who are often wary about coming to see a “talking doctor,”  enables her to form a strong, trusting therapeutic bond which can lead to rapid emotional growth and change.
