Dr. Anna Fineberg is a licensed psychologist based in Philadelphia, PA specializing in anxiety, trauma/PTSD, and perinatal mood changes. Many of her clients seek therapy at moments of significant life transition when they don't feel like themselves, can't control their anxiety, or find that current or past trauma is keeping them stuck. She often works with individuals who struggle with "feeling too much" (e.g., "highly sensitive people"); individuals undergoing reproductive transitions (trying to conceive, pregnancy, postpartum); and health care professionals.
Dr. Fineberg has a strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which helps clients see connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. She works with clients to shift unhelpful thinking patterns, manage emotions, and learn new skills to make positive changes in their lives. She has specialized training in trauma-focused therapies for PTSD, including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE). Dr. Fineberg also incorporates mindfulness and self-compassion to help clients turn down the volume on their inner critic and be more present in their lives.
Dr. Fineberg prioritizes building a safe, supportive, and trusting relationship with her clients. Her therapeutic style is active and collaborative. She works closely with clients to understand what they're looking to get out of therapy and to identify goals to work towards together. She asks questions and shares reflections to help clients consider new perspectives about themselves and their lives. Given her sensitivity and training in trauma-focused therapy, she works well with clients who suspect that past trauma is contributing to current difficulties but don't know where to start. Her clients describe her as warm, engaging, a good listener, and someone who cares deeply about them.
Dr. Fineberg's practice is currently virtual. She meets with clients using confidential and secure video conferencing. Virtual sessions can be easily accessed using your computer, phone, or tablet.
