Hi! I’m Dr. Anitta George, and I started AG Psychology, a private practice where you can experience meaningful relief from mental health struggles and lead a more fulfilling life.

For many of us, taking the steps to start therapy can be difficult. My aim as a psychologist is to create a space where you feel comfortable, valued, and free to be yourself. When you partner with me, together we will explore, identify, and manage the patterns of emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that keep you from feeling your best.

Through my work at hospitals and institutes in New York, I have come to deeply appreciate a holistic approach to treatment that integrates various modalities to honor each person's unique needs.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process and what ultimately guides my work would be your needs and the trust and connection we build. In addition to experiencing symptom relief, effective psychotherapy is a life-changing experience.

“It’s in the sharing of difficult truths that we let go of pain.”
