Seth Bernstein, Ph.D.
As of May 1, 2020 I am only accepting new clients who are interested in and think they would be a good fit for a solution focused, time-limited approach to psychotherapy. This applies to my work with both individuals and couples.

A solution-focused psychotherapy approach to helping people make changes emphasizes building on client strengths and past successes. It also recognizes that new skills are often needed to begin moving forward. Working in partnership with my clients, a treatment plan is created that is adapted to their view of how people make changes and the particular difficulties that are challenging them. The type of psychotherapy I provide is time-limited and designed to address each individual’s or couples' goals, as well as their readiness to change.
