Dr. Deborah Bernstein is a licensed psychologist who has been in clinical practice in the Village of Warwick, New York for 29 years. Her approach to psychotherapy can best be described as “integrative,” combining cognitive behavioral techniques, family systems based interventions, mindfulness/guided meditation, and insight. Dr. Deb treats individual adults and older adolescents. Clients come for therapy to address stress, anxiety/fear, depression, grief/bereavement, relationship or sexual issues, eating/body problems, academic or career difficulties, self-esteem, or parenting concerns.
Most people seek therapy because they dislike the way they feel. The reason they need help is that it is very difficult to modify feelings directly. Therapy helps clients to figure out how to change their thoughts and behavior in ways that produce improvements in mood and energy. Dr. Bernstein is a seasoned clinician who is highly skilled both in the provision of a “traditional” therapy model and in focused single-session or short-term approaches. © Copyright Dr Deb Bernstein | All rights reserved.
