Learn to be free to live life the way you deserve

Beth Shorstein

If you are ready to face your challenges and address your fears, I will help you. In this supportive and positive environment, you can safely share your concerns. Low self-esteem, family estrangement, loss of a loved one, trauma, depression or anxiety are serious but solvable concerns. Those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, obsessions and compulsions, a history of abuse or life-limiting phobias can find help. Working with the right therapist is critical for making the changes you need in order to live the healthy life you deserve. Together we will identify your goals and strategies for self-empowerment, discovery and healing.

My specialties include relationship issues and abuse, family estrangement, PTSD, personality disorders, grief and loss, low self-esteem, as well as depression, anxiety, aging, and gender identity issues.

Using primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, EMDR and positive psychology, I encourage clients to examine their issues from many different perspectives, and to identify their strengths. I vary my approach based on the needs and style of each individual client, and include such techniques as guided therapy, modeling and role playing.

Areas of Interest

My interests include family estrangement, additive personality disorders, chronic pain, borderline personality disorders, gender identity concerns, grief and loss, low self-esteem, and divorce, as well as depression, anxiety, aging, and issues stemming from sexual, physical and emotional abuse.
