When supporting families with children overcome common struggles and work toward positive change, she focuses on helping family members feeling more connected and strengthening the family bond.
Dr. Ekert Rothstein’s training is rooted in the rich tradition of psychodynamic therapy which values self-awareness and a deepening of understanding of the self. She often finds it useful to explore how experiences in an individual’s childhood affect someone’s relationships as well as their way of interacting with the world. She has augmented her strong psychodynamic foundation with cognitive behavioral techniques that allow her to expand her helping strategies. She also offers skills-based work when beneficial and highly values psychoeducation to ensure her clients deepen their understanding of their thoughts and emotions. She considers developing practical and concrete strategies to help a client reach their goals as an important part of the work.
Having worked in a wide variety of settings, including a college treatment center, a nursery school, a parent child center, a Manhattan elementary school, The Child Life program at the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s as well as a hospital psychiatric unit, and with patients from a wide variety of ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic and religious backgrounds, Dr. Ekert Rothstein has a deep understanding and appreciation of where people are coming from. As a now long-time resident of the US with strong cultural ties to Europe, her own immigration experience has naturally informed and shaped her thinking as a psychologist and draws her to working with individuals seeking to integrate varied cultural backgrounds into their lives.
