Hermine (Mimi) Rubenstein


Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW)

I provide individual counseling within a confidential, collaborative and supportive relationship for problems including depression, anxiety, disordered eating and negative feelings about oneself. Issues such as relationship and family problems, work related stress, life transitions and "feeling stuck" are common concerns for which clients seek help. Counseling can give you the chance to identify what is troubling you and to develop different perspectives and coping strategies. I will work with you to challenge thoughts, feelings and behaviors that have a negative impact on you, and identify changes that can result in you feeling better about yourself and your life. I also have a special interest in working with clients who struggle with weight or overeating. Eating may feel "out of control" or compulsive, creating significant distress. Counseling can help you to normalize eating, give food less power, understand underlying emotional issues, and learn to cope with uncomfortable emotions in a healthier way. (See article on eating disorders.) I offer a compassionate, respectful, safe environment in which you can share your story, and explore and effect change that will make a positive difference. Together we will determine what goals to address in our work together. I am a preferred provider for several insurance companies.

Compulsive and emotional eating, anxiety, stress, depression, life transitions are common areas of focus.

In addition to earning an MSW at the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work, I have also completed a one year Fellowship in Addictions at the VA Hospital in Seattle.
