About Dr. Bryan Harnsberger
I am originally from Somers, Connecticut and earned my B.A. in Psychology from Roger Williams University in 2007. I then earned my Masters in Clinical Psychology at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and my Doctorate of Clinical Psychology from William James College in Newton, Massachusetts. I have several research interests: including addictive disorders, leadership and organizational change, and developing new methods of outreach on college campuses. I have served as President of the Society for Descriptive Psychology from 2016-2017 and sat on the organization’s board for the past 5 years.
My predoctoral training included working in an inpatient hospital treating dual diagnosis patients, school-based counseling, neuropsychological testing, and college counseling.
I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at the Home for Little Wanderers, where I received training in motivational interviewing, solutions focused therapy, trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy, and specialized in treating depression and other mood disorders, anxiety and panic related issues, ADHD and addictive disorders.
I worked at Suffolk University Counseling, Health and Wellness Department providing students with compassionate, empirically-based treatment for complex life issues that would require assistance. I have also worked as a consultant for non-profit and political organizations.
In addition to my own private practice, I share my time working in Andover, Massachusetts working for David Rainen, Psy.D, LLC.
