Stephen Delaney PsyD.

Psychologist

I help individuals improve the quality of their lives and life experiences.  My work for the past eight years has been focused on general practice with a specialty in addiction and co-dependency, in a relaxed and respectful environment.  I work with individuals and couples to promote hope, health, and wellness by creating a safe space conducive to facilitating change, reflection and interpersonal growth.  My goal is that each person feels supported to become the best possible expression of themselves, in a culturally sensitive and responsive and non-judgmental environment.

I work with patients to treat a wide range of challenges. I typically treat patients 18 and above in areas relating to the following

  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Behavioral Issues
  • Coping Skills
  • Depression
  • Dual Diagnosis
  • Grief and Loss
  • OCD
  • Relationship Challenges
  • Self Esteem
  • Substance abuse
