Do you or someone close to you have noticeable mood changes or periods of anxiety & depression that are interfering with your life? Is your child not the same youngster he/she used to be? I am a highly experienced PhD. with specializations in Mood Disorders (e.g. Bipolar, Depression), Anxiety Disorders, Eating Disorders, and all Addictions. Additionally, I have substantial experience in virtually all areas of mental health. I work hard for you to make the therapy process both comfortable and rewarding. My practice is open to adults,teens, children, couples and families. Phone consultation (therapy) is available during or after-hours.
My past experience working inpatient(hospital) adult/adolescent and chemical dependency units has allowed me to acquire the skills necessary to deal with even the severest of problems. I have developed confidence and skill at successfully treating mood issues, addiction problems and marital issues. I get positive change with teens and young adults.
I am very committed to helping my patients achieve their goals. In most instances, I promote fast, permanent growth. Even with the most sensitive issues, dramatic change can occur. The greatest complement is having patients tell me they wished they had seen me a long time ago!

Heidi A Berman's Groups

Help For Parents and Their Teens

This is a parenting group to help both teens and their parents. The group will meet twice monthly and more frequently if requested alternating parent and teen. For example, parents meet in the first meeting and teens meet in the second meeting. The idea is to allow both parties the opportunity to express concerns without feeling restricted. Topics will be formulated by both groups for discussion within and also between the groups. Fee TBD please inquire. Parent/teen meeting can be arranged outside the group at a discounted rate. Need 3 people to start.
