About

About Art Frenz, Ph.D.

With an early interest in psychology, I entered Brooklyn College with a major in psychology. Throughout college, my interest in psychotherapy deepened and I pursued a doctorate in clinical psychology. I graduated from Brooklyn College with a Bachelors of Science degree in psychology in 1981 and then earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Syracuse University in 1990. I completed my pre-doctoral internship in clinical psychology at Dartmouth Medical School in 1990.

Between 1990 and 1992, I worked as a staff psychologist at the Tioga County Mental Health Clinic. In 1992, I joined a group private practice in Vestal, NY. In 2000, I cofounded a new group private practice, Oakdale Psychology Associates, in Johnson City, NY. I established my current solo private practice in Endicott, NY in 2006. In 2016, I moved my practice to Vestal, NY. I live in the Greater Binghamton, NY area with my wife of twenty-three years.

The Practice

The practice is a solo practice designed and managed to provide quality service in a comfortable and confidential setting. To maximize privacy, confidentiality and efficiency, I personally handle all phone calls, scheduling and billing procedures. This provides a private and personalized experience for clients.
