Dr. Torstenson's Training and Experience

I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in individual and couples psychotherapy and maintain a private practice in Fairfield County, CT and New York, NY.

I have worked at mental health hospitals, elementary schools, and several university counseling centers in Chicago, Seattle, and New York. I have supervised and trained clinical psychology doctoral-level graduate students. Currently in my private practice, I have expertise in relationship concerns, depression and anxiety, trauma and past abuse, life transitions, women's issues, and concerns related to college and university students, artists, and LGBTQ-identified or questioning individuals.

In addition, I've presented at institutions such as Bellevue Hospital, Northwestern University, Columbia College, The University of Washington, Stony Brook University, Fordham University, Marymount Manhattan College, and The Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy (SEPI) on topics such as building healthy relationships, suicide prevention, diversity awareness and sensitivity, navigating LGBTQ issues, and body image and eating disorders. I also volunteer at Healthright International Human Rights Clinic in New York City. I welcome you to discuss any questions you might have about my work.
