About Dr. Silberstein
I earned my master’s and doctorate in adult clinical psychology at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology/Yeshiva University, and completed my 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 NYC, where I obtained advanced training in psychodynamic psychotherapy. I have also received specialized postgraduate training in the treatment of insomnia and other sleep disorders.
Throughout my years of academic training and clinical work, I have gained knowledge and experience with various populations, including college students, young adults, military veterans, and older adults. I have also worked with immigrants, first generation Americans, and bicultural persons.
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. While my clinical orientation is primarily psychodynamic, I often integrate cognitive-behavioral and other techniques to better address the unique needs of each client. When treating clients with sleep complaints, I exclusively utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia, or CBT-I.
I offer consultations, psychotherapy, and insomnia treatment in English and Hebrew.
