SE TRAUMA INSTITUTE PRACTITIONER DIRECTORY

Amy Bernstein

SE™ PractitionerSE Assistant

My work is rooted in helping people live fuller, less worried lives. I draw from my studies in interpersonal psychodynamic psychotherapy, body-oriented treatment methods, and in-the-moment mindful-awareness techniques to help facilitate insight and healing. My style is authentic, collaborative, warm, curious, and straightforward.

I work with individuals and with couples. My approach is informed by my post-graduate studies in relational psychodynamic psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, biodynamic craniosacral work, eating disorder and addiction treatment, yoga and mindfulness trainings, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and couples therapy.

I earned my master’s degree from the Silberman School of Social work at Hunter College and my undergraduate degree from Cornell University.
