Dr. Sarah Selden


Welcome to my private practice website. I am a licensed psychologist in practice in New York and Connecticut with extensive experience working with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, emotion regulation difficulties, relationship issues, family issues, academic and career stress, life transitions, multicultural issues, and identity issues.

Psychotherapy can serve as a safe space to work through problems you may be experiencing and can help with areas in which you feel stuck or at an impasse. It can also improve your relationships with others in your life and provide relief when you are suffering. In times of darkness and uncertainty,  psychotherapy can reduce emotional pain and offer an anchor. 

I work from a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental approach to help clients meet their goals. I customize my approach to best serve my clients’ unique needs, but tend to work from an integrative therapeutic style that incorporates psychodynamic and relational techniques with dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), an evidence-based treatment for a range of mood and emotional problems and interpersonal issues. 

I provide individual therapy to adults and adolescents. When appropriate, I provide DBT-informed therapy that includes phone coaching. 

In addition to psychotherapy, I have a strong background in psychological testing and conduct neuropsychological and psychological assessments in my practice.
