About Dr. Silberstein
I am a clinical psychologist (PsyD) and Diplomate in Behavioral Sleep Medicine (DBSM).
I earned my master’s and doctorate in clinical psychology from Yeshiva University’s Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, and completed a clinical internship at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Vermont. Following graduation, I completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies in New York City, where I received advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Following my passion for anything sleep-related, I have obtained postgraduate training in the treatment of insomnia and other sleep disorders. This included training in cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) at the University of Pennsylvania and numerous continuing education courses.
Throughout my years of academic training and clinical work, I have gained knowledge and experience with various populations, including college students, young adults, working parents, military veterans, and older adults. I have also worked with immigrants, first generation Americans, and LGBTQIA clients.
My goal as a therapist is to provide an accepting and supportive environment, where you can explore your experiences, gain insight into your difficulties, and learn effective ways to overcome challenges.
I offer consultations, psychotherapy, and sleep treatment in English and Hebrew.
"I started seeing Dr. Silberstein after a year of poor sleep -- difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, and waking up ahead of my alarm. After working with Dr. Silberstein, I'm now able to sleep a full night, and I wake up feeling refreshed. Furthermore, Dr. Silberstein taught me to fall asleep without sleep meds, and added more time to my day by helping me sleep more efficiently. I highly recommend her."
