Susan Lipkins, PhD, Psychologist in Port Washington
Trust is the most important element of a therapeutic relationship. I establish a strong rapport with my patients, and I am available 24/7. Together we can view your issues from different angles finding the solution that is consistent with your values and beliefs. I encourage a dialogue and find pragmatic answers to the issues that face many, including anxiety, depression, OCD, and bipolar illness. I work with people of all ages, from 2-92. I believe that it is important to work with parents when treating children. I have 25 years of experience, I am a respected professional.
Skilled in many kinds of therapeutic techniques, I match the style to the problem and patient. I am trained in behavioral techniques including CBT, but I also integrate psycho-dynamic practices. I do play/art therapy, interpersonal talk therapy, stress management, and dream analysis. I treat individuals, couples and families.
I am an expert in bullying, hazing, harassment and sexting. I wrote Preventing Hazing: How Parents, Teacher and Coaches Can Stop the Violence, Harassment and Humiliation. In addition, I invented a behavior modification game which helps children aged 4-12. I am often interviewed on television, radio and print.
