He was genuinely excited

My son knew how much Dr. Berlin really truly cared and that made him look forward to going each week. When Dr. Berlin noted progress, he was genuinely excited. With each step forward, he reevaluated asking, “ what else do we need to address in order to reach our goals?”..

All Beginnings are Hard…

My clinical training was done in community mental health centers, youth detention centers, and an adolescent addiction treatment center where I worked long and hard listening, encouraging, and guiding very challenging children to improve their future trajectory.

Many of these children had severe emotional illness and were very resistant to treatment. It was difficult work, but I learned a ton! 

I learned how to connect with them and help them grow, despite their strong hesitation to develop relationships and a more positive sense of self.

Opening a private practice has given me the opportunity to work with adults and children who show up and invest deeply in the inner work. The courage and strength of my clients amazes, impresses, and inspires me making every day meaningful.

The Goal is to Find Solutions:

My role in your life is to help you break free of the thoughts and behaviors limiting your success. I am committed to providing the environment in which you can work towards the life- altering relief you deserve.

We’ll be back… if we need

You will not be in therapy forever! Dr. Berlin was confident when he said we had done enough and he was right! I’m grateful that he kept the lines of communication open, because if anything comes up again, we will definitely be going back!
