Tina Dubin

Emotional Issues: Depression, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, Social Isolation; Problems with Identity, Relationships, Power and Attention.

Marital/Couple and Family Relations: How relationships get stuck and why. How they can be improved through communication, understanding and problem-solving. She provides insight into the different perspectives of men and women. She also provides advice on what well-functioning relationships need, and how our childhood experiences influence the ways we relate to others within the family.

Women’s Issues: Situations and concerns of particular relevance to women – e.g., caregiving, mother/daughter relationships, the male perspective, couple and marital situations, new mother difficulties, single mothering, being on one’s own in mid-life and in later life. Dr. Dubin has a strong interest and commitment to facilitating dialogue among women around such topics and in creating mutual support.

Supportive Therapy Groups: These are created when there are at least five people who might relate well to each other around a topic, issue, emotion, life-stage experience, or a general need for connection and support. [Let us know of your need; we will do our best to find a supportive group that is a good fit for you.]
