My name is Dr. Bettina Adelberg-Dubin. I received my doctoral degree in Psychology from the University of Kansas in 1977. I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Texas at Austin Counseling Center. Since then, I have been a research associate at the Institute of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Texas, a founding associate of Family Eldercare, a faculty member of Pennsylvania State University, and I have been in private practive with my husband, Dr. William Dubin, at Psychological ARTS (www.psycharts.com) since 1980.
I have been practicing psychology for over 40 years. Throughout my experience, I have honed my expertise in the following areas:
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. I provide insight into the different perspectives of men and women. I also provide 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., care-giving 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. I have 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.
