Ms. Fishbein’s approach to therapy is guided by the core belief that people are not defined by their problems and that healing can be expedited by attuning to one’s strengths. She aims to be a warm, curious and attuned guide who stands shoulder-to-shoulder with her clients in their healing process.
Ms. Fishbein integrates a variety of empirically-informed therapeutic techniques to meet her clients where they are and guide them towards the progress they seek. Her approach is tailored to each client’s unique needs and pulls from behavioral, cognitive and emotional modalities while recognizing and appreciating the biological, psychological, social and spiritual contexts that impact her clients’ lives.
Ms. Fishbein works with individuals, couples and families on a variety of presenting problems. Her clinical interests include life stage transitions (including emerging adults, adult children and parent relationship issues), couples issues and systemically-focused family of origin work.
Valuing intersectionality and diversity, her clientele varies in cultural, social, racial, spiritual, gender and sexual identity. She is committed to lifelong learning and social justice and views cultural humility as essential to her work.
She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northwestern University. Prior to becoming a therapist, she spent 8 years in marketing. She is currently a member of The Family Institute's Alumni Advisory Board.
