Dr. Randi Cohen, MD, PhD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I like to start with your goals in treatment and work in the present first, then bring in aspects of the past if they seem relevant. I tend to have great respect and appreciation for the people that I work with, and I will also not be shy about pushing you to acknowledge uncomfortable truths and to change. Unlike many other therapists, I am interactive and transparent about what is happening during the treatment... I feel that this helps you get the most from the therapy experience. I have training in a number of therapy styles, from classical to modern, so I am able to tailor my approach to suit the person and the problem.

Dr. Cohen is the best therapist I have seen. She is attentive and always encourages me to make changes without overwhelming me. I appreciate her compassion and she has taught me how to be compassionate to myself. I have struggled withdepression and anxiety for many years. I finally feel like I have the support I need.

Dr. C is always helpful, fun, and kind to any situation I bring to her. Unlike many other quick-to-prescribe doctors. She actually cares and works hard with the patient to find the solution internally. I always feel better about my lifesituations and personal struggles when I leave her office. She is a one of a kind mental health professional.

I have seen many doctors throughout the years and Dr. Cohen is the 1st doctor in 15 years to successfully diagnose me. This has allowed me to move toward a normal, structured, functional, and happy life. I feel in control and at ease thanks to her support and expertise.

Dr. Cohen is great - her approach is far more practical than that of other therapists I've visited. She's focused on helping you make constructive changes, not being all touchy - feely about your feelings & your mother.

In 10 months of Dr. Cohen's care, I've found her to be very attentive, earnest, and compassionate. Her style is participatory, energetic, and pragmatic. Though, she'll readily support longer-scale philosophical pursuits with rigour and sympathy. I believe I'm a happier person for being in her care.
