Robert J. Brecher, PsyD
Licensed Clinical Psychologist | 856-983-3866 Ext. 3104
“I follow the philosophy that depression, anxiety, and distress stem from disharmony between one’s day-to-day experience and self-perception, goals, or expectations. I look to promote a safe, accepting atmosphere with clients in which we can explore decisions, choices, and patterns of thinking. I help clients use knowledge about themselves, including their strengths and values, to overcome problems, find personal harmony and improve the quality of their lives.”
