Birch Tree Psychology

Specializing in Therapy for Children, Adults, and Families

Birch Tree Psychology is a family practice that provides individual treatment for Adults, Children, and Adolescents as well as Couples Counseling. Birch Tree Psychology was founded by Dr. Peter Berzins and Dr. Brittany Ryan-Berzins. We specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy, with treatment tailored to best serve our clients' needs. 


This is a family practice in every sense. We are a married couple who received our Ph.D.s in Clinical Psychology from Fordham University. We had a plan to establish a group practice where individuals could receive treatment in an environment that feels comfortable and family friendly. This came to fruition when Birch Tree Psychology was established. We have expanded our practice to include other therapists with varied specialties to meet the needs of our community. Some of our specialties include: anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, couples counseling, relationship issues, and people seeking to live more fulfilling lives. When appropriate, we work collaboratively with parents, schools, pediatricians, and psychiatrists to help create a comprehensive approach.
