Dr. Rebecca Hershberg is a Clinical Psychologist and the founder of Little House Calls Psychological Services, which has offices in Tribeca, Columbus Circle, and lower Westchester County. She specializes in parenting, perinatal mental health, anxiety disorders, and family dynamics, and especially enjoys working with parents who are looking for additional support around the challenges of raising young children. These include, but are not limited to, tantrums/defiance, fears, separation anxiety, family transitions (e.g., divorce, a new sibling), potty training, and sleep. Although the majority of her sessions happen in the office, she will also conduct home or school visits if needed.
Dr. Hershberg takes an eclectic approach that is rooted in an attachment framework. Her focus is on the parent-child relationship and on helping parents be with their children in a way that fosters coping skills, resilience, frustration tolerance, and healthy social-emotional development. Toward this end, she pulls techniques from Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Relational Therapy. She helps her clients tune in to their babies, toddlers, and young children by providing critical information about child development, common parenting triggers, and concrete strategies and approaches for everyday difficulties.
Prior to her current work, Dr. Hershberg was the Director of Early Childhood at Ramapo for Children and the Director of Training and Quality for Healthy Steps at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore. She is a frequent speaker at NYC preschools and parent organizations, and the author of the Tantrum Survival Guide (Guilford Press), heralded as the ultimate "toddler decoding manual." Her Manhattan office is conveniently located near the 59 St - Columbus Circle subway station.
