Professional statement

Dr. Anna Berin is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology who has extensive professional experience working within and across systems, as well as with individuals across the developmental lifespan including teens, young adults, and adults. She also provides LGBTQIA+ affirming care and has supported many of her clients through their gender transition. As such, she helps her clients explore where they are in the world and how best to support their journey.

Dr. Berin believes change happens when individuals are ready to make adjustments in their lives, and she is excited to join them on their journey. She considers herself to be an integrationist, incorporating elements from a variety of treatment modalities taking into consideration the whole-person by appreciating their emotional, psychological and behavioral aspects of functioning. She understands that individuals have their own unique strengths and ways of being in the world. She utilizes what clients bring into therapy to help them clarify intention and to understand how to make actionable steps to achieve their goals. While she takes into account individual limitations, she focuses heavily on insight-oriented techniques to help challenge clients to think beyond their barriers, to understand what may be contributing or sustaining their behaviors, and how to access their resilience (and grit). When working with families and couples, Dr. Berin does not limit herself to any particular challenge and has experience navigating various issues of conflict, non-monogamy, redefining a relationship, and trans-generational trauma.

Dr. Berin is passionate about her work and is committed to ongoing- learning to ensure she is offering evidence-based, trauma informed and culturally sensitive treatment. She does both long-term and short-term work with an ultimate goal of supporting clients through compassionate, but honest and transparent dialogue. She looks forward to meeting you!


Message to clients

It can be very helpful to have a professionally trained mental health practitioner who is empathic and non-judgmental be the one with whom you share your thoughts and feelings, work through life's challenges, and to address patterns around your relationship with youreself, as well as other relational and interpersonal dynamics. I provide accountable, constructive, and honest feedback. I do this while being able to hold a safe space to explore your process, to encourage consistency, and to help you align motivation with conscious intention and positive behavioral, emotional, and psychological outcomes.

Moreover, I intergrate evidence based strategies and techinques with intuitive guidance. I will help to guide you to be and to feel in alignment with your desires, needs and wants, as well as to help you develop an internal locus of control that will help to drive your decisions. While I appreciate and understand the energy of passion, I also know through personal and professional experience that sometimes, emotions, do not always have our best intentions at heart. As such, I help to honor and acknowledge parts of us that are both delicate and passionate, as well as the parts of us that are intentional and brasin to match whatever energy you wish to put out in the world.

Lastly, I do not take for grated your trust in our therapeutic relationship. I am committed to working with you to achieve your goals.
