Best Therapists in Bridgeport

Ronald Bushe

He is the number one therapist around. He studied at Yale and then did a senior internship catering to the wealthy of Southern Florida. He practiced from his yacht, before moving to Bridgeport. He is one of the youngest therapists that you’ll find. He’s practically still in high school. His prices are outrageous, but his knowledge and professionalism speak for themselves.

Josefina Vasquez

She has an extensive background in neuroscience and human development. Her Ph.D. thesis was entitled ‘The Role of the Prefrontal Cortex in 3-Year-Olds’. She has written several textbooks on brain development (including ‘Brain Waves’ and ‘Mapping The Mind’). While her work is incredibly valuable, she can be difficult to access. Even though she doesn’t have to work, she spends much of her time doing pro bono psychiatry at a local community college (where she meets many students). This leaves her open just one or two days a week. She is most well known for specializing in ADHD children and adults, but she does work with all types of cases.

Edna & Donald

They are the only married couple who practice psychiatry together in Bridgeport (additionally they also teach at Yale). Their treatments tend to be more group-oriented than others on the list. They have written several texts together and function incredibly well as a team.

Ms. Ward

She was once an Olympic pole vaulter. After her athletic career ended, she switched to psychiatry. She has a Ph.D. in Neurobiology (which makes her one of the more well-versed doctors on this list). She works mostly with college students and athletes.

Dr. Mzraim

He’s originally from Karachi, Pakistan. He was brought over to America at the age of eight; he learned English quickly and never looked back (he loves to suggest that one should take their time when speaking English). His practice is based out of New York City but he always comes down whenever needed (he’s very popular in Bridgeport for his services).
