Professional statement

Dr. Bonnie Steinberg is a psychiatrist in Providence, RI. Her practice is open to adults across the lifespan, including college students and recent graduates. She enjoys working with people with a variety of backgrounds and identities.

Dr. Steinberg sees clients for a number of issues, including mood disorders, such as depression; anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder or generalized anxiety disorder; the destructive effects of trauma, sexual abuse or childhood abuse and neglect; identity issues; life transitions; relationship or family issues; work or academic stressors; college mental health issues; and attention deficit disorders.

When an individual comes in to see Dr. Steinberg, she takes care to listen to their story and perform a thorough evaluation. She works collaboratively to understand her client's challenges and goals, and to tailor an individualized treatment plan that aligns with their priorities and values. Treatment may include medication management, psychotherapy, or a thoughtful combination of the two in a personalized plan of care.

If medication would be helpful, Dr. Steinberg prescribes according to the most current, evidence-based practice.  In terms of psychotherapy, she has specialized training and expertise in a variety of modalities, which she often integrates during the process of treatment. These techniques may include psychodynamic talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, relaxation and mindfulness techniques, internal family systems psychotherapy, EMDR, lifestyle changes, practical strategies, and supportive psychotherapy.

After finishing her undergraduate degree at Princeton University and obtaining her medical degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Steinberg completed a residency in psychiatry, followed by a research fellowship in mood and personality disorders at the Mt Sinai Medical Center in New York City. She has been practicing psychiatry in RI for nearly 25 years.
