  • Dr. Rubenstein works with patients experiencing a range of anxiety and stress including generalized anxiety, worry, social anxiety, health anxiety, and panic attacks using CBT, EMDR and mindfulness approaches. She facilitates deepening self awareness to help manage difficult emotions, develop healthy coping strategies and meet goals. 

  • Dr. Rubenstein has expertise in the assessment and treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and related co-morbidities. She works with patients experiencing a range of traumatic experiences (e.g., sexual assault, burn injuries, mass shootings, motor vehicle accidents, combat, life-threatening illnesses and sudden loss of loved ones) and resulting sequelae (e.g., PTSD, depression, anger) using evidence-based techniques including Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). In addition to reducing symptoms following trauma, Dr. Rubenstein helps facilitate posttraumatic growth which includes recognizing personal strengths, identification of new possibilities, and spiritual growth. 

  • Dr. Rubenstein works with patients to help navigate challenging relationships  (e.g., family, romantic relationships, professional relationships and friendships) by enhancing self awareness and effective interpersonal communication skills. In addition to communication issues, Dr. Rubenstein has experience working with patients on improving emotional and sexual intimacy. She uses a range of approaches including CBT, mindfulness and EMDR.

  • Dr. Rubenstein works with patients to overcome challenges in their professional life (e.g., interpersonal conflicts, communication issues, low job satisfaction, navigating career shifts and getting promoted or fired) through examining limiting beliefs, enhancing coping skills, developing effective communication skills, stress management and other conflict resolution skills. She draws from CBT, EMDR and mindfulness based approaches.

  • Dr. Rubenstein believes that life transitions provide a unique opportunity for self discovery and personal growth. She works with patients experiencing a range of life transitions including adjustment to college, making a commitment, getting engaged, marriage, pregnancy, miscarriage, adjustment to parenthood, break ups, divorce, adjustment to serious medical illness and loss of a loved one using a range of techniques including CBT, EMDR and mindfulness.

  • Dr. Rubenstein thoughtfully incorporates customized mindfulness and meditation techniques throughout therapy by consulting with patients to find the most appropriate techniques for their personality and needs. Dr. Rubenstein has over 20 years of experience with mindfulness practice drawing from her training in techniques such as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Transcendental Meditation (TM), and Shambhala (a branch of Tibetan Buddhism), as well as her own mindfulness journey and daily practice.

  • Dr. Rubenstein trained in Attachment Focused EMDR, an evidence based treatment for PTSD. In addition to the treatment of PTSD, EMDR is also used to treat the psychological effects of smaller traumas that manifest in symptoms of depression, anxiety, phobias, low self-esteem, creativity blocks, and relationship difficulties. Not only does healing occur much more rapidly than in traditional therapy, but as a result of EMDR’s clearing of emotional and physical blockages, many people also experience a sense of joy, openness, and deep connection with others. EMDR is a quantum leap in the human ability to heal trauma and maladaptive beliefs.
