Alice M. Bernstein, PhD

I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy that incorporates elements of cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic theory, family systems theory, client centered counseling, and a consideration of bio-social factors that contribute to emotional problems. I have extensive experience with individuals of various nationalities and ethnicities as well as with college, graduate, and professional school students. One area of particular interest is working with creative individuals.
