Debra Pliner, Ph.D.

Debra Pliner

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Pennsylvania. My overall approach to therapy is to tailor each person’s therapy to his or her unique needs, goals, and strengths. I realize that what may work for one person may not always work for another, and therefore I believe that it is important to be flexible and sensitive to individual differences.

While I generally practice cognitive-behavioral therapy combined with mindfulness-based concepts and techniques, I may at times also use other methods to present a more integrative approach depending on your needs and personality style.

Together, you and I will work to identify significant patterns in your life that affect your well-being, understand the thoughts and feelings behind those patterns, and integrate new and more effective ways of dealing with the challenges you face.

Areas of specialization include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship problems
  • Anger Management
  • Stress Management
  • Life transitions
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Adults
  • College Students
