Dr. Herschman is a warm, approachable, and compassionate professional. She is objective, fair, and balanced in her approach at offering her expertise for change.
Dr. Herschman utilizes an eclectic therapeutic style with children, adolescents, adults and families because every situation is different and therefore warrants a tailored approach. Most psychologists have a practice philosophy that guides their work, which they have developed through their education, training and experience. Dr. Herschman's approach to psychotherapy with all populations includes a variety of attempts to look beyond the confines of single-school approaches in order to see what can be learned from other perspectives. It is characterized by openness to various ways of integrating diverse theories and techniques. More specifically, she will often combine object relations theory, family systems and existential points of view. It is critical in her work that one feels safe and secure in this environment, which will form the foundation for change. There is an emphasis on object relations theory, which focuses on interpersonal relations, primarily in the family and how they impact current, past and future relationships.
The types of problems most commonly seen in her practice include (but are not limited to) stress, anxiety, depression, adjustment problems, parenting issues, obsessive-compulsive disorder, various behavioral disorders (ADHD/ADD, oppositional defiant disorder etc…), attachment issues. personality disorders, and different types of relationship problems.
