Brigitte Apfel, MD

Psychiatrist, Therapist, & Coach

Providing you with care grounded in empathy, sensitivity and respect using psychotherapeutic techniques and medication to improve your overall well-being: Working with you in a collaborative style and creating a nurturing environment for your personal growth.

There are Many Reasons ...

Sometimes a sudden event changes your life so that your usual strategies do not work anymore, and sometimes little things grow over time to a huge mountain which seems unsurmountable, sometimes you may just feel stuck. I offer a safe, judgment-free environment to address therapeutically these common issues for adult professionals.
  • You experience a depressed mood, anxiety, worries, irritability, insomnia, or excessive overwhelm

  • You want to thrive in your personal life and at work 

  • You’ve tried to solve your problems however your usual coping mechanisms - which were helpful so far - are not working anymore

  • You want to overcome traumatic experiences

  • You’re high functioning despite your condition, but know you need expert help

  • You want to control and to alleviate your emotions.

  • You’re willing to confront your fears because you know the future can be better.

  • You know you can’t keep living life like this.
