Professional statement

Dr. Anna Fineberg is a licensed psychologist based in Philadelphia, PA specializing in anxiety, trauma/PTSD, and perinatal mood changes. Many of her clients seek therapy at moments of significant life transition when they don't feel like themselves, can't control their anxiety, or find that current or past trauma is keeping them stuck. She often works with individuals who struggle with "feeling too much" (e.g., "highly sensitive people"); individuals undergoing reproductive transitions (trying to conceive, pregnancy, postpartum); and health care professionals.

Dr. Fineberg has a strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which helps clients see connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. She works with clients to shift unhelpful thinking patterns, manage emotions, and learn new skills to make positive changes in their lives. She has specialized training in trauma-focused therapies for PTSD, including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE). Dr. Fineberg also incorporates mindfulness and self-compassion to help clients turn down the volume on their inner critic and be more present in their lives.

Dr. Fineberg prioritizes building a safe, supportive, and trusting relationship with her clients. Her therapeutic style is active and collaborative. She works closely with clients to understand what they're looking to get out of therapy and to identify goals to work towards together. She asks questions and shares reflections to help clients consider new perspectives about themselves and their lives. Given her sensitivity and training in trauma-focused therapy, she works well with clients who suspect that past trauma is contributing to current difficulties but don't know where to start. Her clients describe her as warm, engaging, a good listener, and someone who cares deeply about them.

Dr. Fineberg's practice is currently virtual. She meets with clients using confidential and secure video conferencing. Virtual sessions can be easily accessed using your computer, phone, or tablet.


Message to clients

If you've found this page, it probably means that life feels pretty hard right now, and you're wondering if therapy can help. What I can tell you is that almost every transition, struggle, and burden becomes easier to carry when you're not carrying it alone. Therapy is a place to feel seen, heard, and supported. It's a place where you can get new perspective and learn new skills, where you can learn to like yourself better and to trust yourself more.

A key component of effective therapy is finding a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and have a sense of "fit." I may be a good fit for you if you're: coming to therapy to focus on trauma, anxiety, medical professionals’ mental health, or perinatal mental health; looking for a therapist who is warm, empathic, collaborative, and practical; interested in active, evidence-based practices like CBT, which help you learn strategies to take outside of therapy and into your life.

I believe that good therapy helps us feel more connected to ourselves and others, and more engaged and present in our lives. I seek to understand your current difficulties in the context of your personal history and experiences. I help clients process experiences that need our attention and learn new ways to cope. I often use humor and metaphor to help clients gain awareness of patterns of thinking and behavior that might be contributing to their distress.

If you're wondering if we might be a good fit, please reach out.
