Psychotherapy: One Size Does Not Fit All

Stacy Berlin, Psy.D. is a licensed psychologist and began practicing in 1995. Dr. Berlin is an integrative therapist who works from a relational framework. She works in a collaborative and interactive manner to create a safe place where one can feel the freedom to explore their feelings and thoughts.

As a psychologist with extensive and broad education, and experience in psychoanalysis, she brings exceptional awareness to her private practice.
