Couple Smiling at Each Other
About Dr. Steinberg | Manhattan | New York City | Great Neck

I completed my graduate studies in Applied Psychology at NYU, during which time I was also a Clinical Intern at Columbia University. I furthered my Psychotherapy training in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), the evidence-based and highly effective form of CBT, at the esteemed Albert Ellis Institute. To better understand and treat the wide variety of issues related to relationships, partnering and sexuality, I sought specialized post-graduate training at the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists and am a Board Certified Clinical Sexologist and am a Diplomate of the American Board of Sexology. To treat patients with Psychosomatic Complaints, I have also completed the Masters Class trainings taught by the Psychophysiologic Disorders Association (TMS/PPD). I earned my undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

I am honored to be an adjunct Assistant Professor one day each week at Columbia University and I also supervise budding psychotherapists who are new to our field.

I have extensive experience treating patients with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues and
work-related performance anxiety. I work with individuals and couples in both traditional and alternative relationships and my work is confidential and without discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or any other factor. I remain very active in the Psychotherapy community and regularly contribute to books, articles and blogs.

I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (#004642) with offices located in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, near Grand Central Station and in Great Neck (Long Island).

I use a personalized approach which places high value on the therapeutic relationship and is tailored to patients' individual needs.
