Ilana Pomerantz, Psy.D.
I specialize in adult psychopathology and use evidence-based therapies, including cognitive, behavioral, attachment-focused, psychodynamic, and mindfulness-based interventions.
I utilize a strengths-based and holistic approach and am deeply committed to creating a therapeutic space that feels safe, warm, and authentic. I respect the uniqueness of my clients, including their personal and social context, and strive to provide treatment tailored to their specific needs. My goal is to help my clients develop a toolbox of strategies and skills to tackle life’s challenges with greater confidence. I honor the importance and richness of diversity and welcome people of all racial and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
