Bryan Blum portraitTherapeutic Style: I practice an integrative style of therapy called cyclical psychodynamics. Utilizing principles from psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and family systems approaches, I work with students to identify patterns and collaborate with students on ways to break patterns outside of therapy.

Professional Interests: My main area of focus with college students is performance. I work both with general students to help them improve academic performance though confidence building and anxiety reduction, and with athletes to assist them in achieving peak athletic performance. Other areas of interest include social and generalized anxiety, perfectionism and depressive symptoms.

Group and Liaison Roles: I have worked with collegiate athletic teams at Division I and Division III in group settings to improve team dynamics and resolve team issues that are impeding peak performance. I have also run a skills group to reduce anxiety and depressive symptoms utilizing the unified protocol.

Educational Background: I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Providence College and a master’s degree in general psychology from Stony Brook University. I am currently a fifth year doctoral student at Long Island University, Post campus. Previous experiences include the Behavioral Health College Partnership at Zucker Hillside Hospital and Stevens Institute of Technology.
