About Me

Hi There! I am a dual licensed professional counselor in both Florida and California State. My last twenty years of direct support positions working with a myriad of populations and ages has included counseling adolescents in high schools and foster care agencies, newly homeless, pregnant women in a non-profit agency (suffering from depression due to domestic violence), chronically mentally ill patients in hospital care, elderly clientele in an adult care facility, adults facing trauma and grief, and all ages on a crisis and text line. Through all these experiences I have been extremely humbled by so many people allowing me to enter their worlds.

As a therapist, I utilize a person-centered approach using warmth, compassion, and and humor to understand each person I meet. I am especially attuned to those suffering loss or trauma, as I personally have lost two family members to depression. These losses have given me a special gift to help heal those around me and compel me to soften the anxiety, depression, or confusion of those who need it. I especially try to help people become more resilient in their lives since I have had to personally be this way and not to succumb to the hardships I have had to face. Rather than letting these hardships define me, I have wanted to connect with others and provide support for others facing life struggles. On a personal level, I am especially connected to nature and animals and have been an avid animal rescuer my entire life.

I look forward to hearing YOUR story.

Dina helped me get through a rough time. I have anxiety in talking to people that aren't in my inner circle. However, Dina provides a safe and friendly environment that encourages me to talk about and bring surface deep down feelings/issues. It is a true joy to talk to her and she remembers our interactions. On top of that, she makes sure to check up on me via text. I feel like she truly does care about my well-being.

Dina is an excellent listener and has been an invaluable resource for me in making big decisions. She looks at all situations from an objective point of view and is able to give good advice while still taking my emotions into consideration. She is also great at just letting me vent when I need it and then getting the conversation back on track. I would recommend her for anyone going through a tough time and in need of advice.

Thank you! Working with you has been incredibly helpful, and I'm really glad that I matched with you on this site

Dina made me feel like I was talking to a friend upon our first talk! I’m excited to continue.

For the past 6 months I've been very happy with Dina as my counselor.

I had been seeing a therapist locally that charged more for 1 session than an entire month of BetterHelp. My therapist is truly the best I’ve ever worked with, she is empathetic and recognizes the things that make me tick. She’s worked with me on goal setting and specific worksheets to help me achieve my goals. I couldn’t be happier with her.

Dina is a kind and warm person. When we chat, either through messages or video chat, it's not like seeing therapist but like talking to a friend. She asks questions and I get the sense that she is genuinely curious and interested in me. I also really like the fact that because she's from a different country from me, we will never run the risk of overlap in people we will know, which is something I've faced when seeing local therapists. She's really chill and I appreciate it.

I’ve been talking with her for a month now and am very happy about it. She has already given me many tools to navigate life and the situations it brings. She is very responsive and punctual. I would give her the highest rating you can.

Written by D.A. on Apr 23, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 1 month

Dina Vineberg has been a great therapist and is always responsive throughout the week which has been very helpful. I've been through a large handful of therapists throughout my life but unlike other therapists, who sit there with a clipboard and analyze you, Dina intently listens to me and I do not feel judged which I really appreciate.

A human, not just a therapist who has enough humanness in her to understand and be able to help you. She is here for you. Keep going.

Written by J.A. on Apr 12, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 4 weeks

I have had two or three sessions with Dina so far and she has been an absolute pleasure to speak with. She’s thoughtful and understanding and really listens. Our conversations are always fun and that’s exactly what I was hoping for. Looking forward to working her again!

Review written by JM - 2 weeks counselling with Dina Vineberg on insecurities such as low self-esteem, low confidence and jealousy issues.

It has been a real pleasure talking to Dina who has helped me so much by being open, honest, understanding and patient as well as being a great listener. She devoted a lot of time in the two weeks of counselling as well as providing me with so many helpful worksheets which have proved so beneficial. I thought I was a 'lost cause' but she made me believe in myself again and I'll always be thankful to her for that. What a genuinely lovely person. Thank you!

Written by D.A. on Mar 12, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 3 months

My first month on BetterHelp was frustrating. I went through two counselors that did not wish to engage with me outside of a scheduled session. I eventually was able to make one appointment but did not find it useful. Even with the very appreciated financial aid discount, it was disappointing to feel like I had nothing to show for the month and funds spent. Customer support was gracious to provide me with a free week to try another counselor. I was ready to throw in the towel on counseling and the problems I am working through. I even cancelled my subscription to the site, but I reached out to one more counselor anyway. Dina. I renewed my subscription shortly after our first conversation and am greatly appreciative for her and the time period Betterhelp was able to provide financial aid to make counseling possible for me for those months. Dina has been an amazing help to me.

My aided subscription period is about up and I very much hope to be able to resume counseling again and continue my work with Dina.

I really think Dina Vineberg is a superb therapist. She is always able to hear what I am saying and to clarify with me. As well she asks me the hard questions and helps me stay on track with what I am working on.

Dina is an amazing therapist and I am thankful for her time and advice!

Diane is a great counselor with good advice. She's been helping me and I look forward to each session we have every week.

I'm going through what is literally the hardest time of my life right now, and I'm beyond grateful to have Dr. Vineberg to talk to me and keep my spirits up. She listens and reminds me to focus. I still have a ways to go, but she's helped me sort out a lot of my thoughts. I don't know what i'd do without her.

Written by J.A. on Feb 01, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 1 month

Thank you for helping me through my difficult times. I'm glad I chose BetterHelp to better me. I recommend Dina to anyone who is going through the most difficult times.

Written by A.L. on Jan 29, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 1 week

Dina made me feel incredibly comfortable sharing personal details. She's open, considerate, a very good listener, and genuinely a great person. I had some really tough choices to make involving my career, relationships, and more. She helped simplify some very complex problems, and turned challenging decisions into easy ones. I am so much happier since talking to Dina.

Written by T.A. on Jan 29, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and grief

Dina is an incredibly compassionate and caring person. I feel like I know her and can trust her. I feel better knowing I can reach out to Dina and she has helped me a lot.

Written by A.M. on Jan 28, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 1 month

Dina is very supportive and encouraging when we discuss my goals and accomplishments. Talking with her is like talking to a good friend. She is a great listener and helps me through any issue I want to work through with her. I would recommend her to a friend because she is very understanding and helps with relationship coaching and my emotional development.

Written by T.I. on Jan 23, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 1 month

I've only been on BetterHelp for 2 months now and Dina has been great. She is responsive when I do reach out to her, and our phone calls have been helpful-I feel like she's the friend I haven't talked to in a long while that I am catching up with. It is very easy opening up to her, as she is very friendly and welcoming.

Written by M.A. on Jan 21, 2020 after counseling with Dina for 1 month

Dina Vineberg, my first and only counselor after signing up with
BetterHelp, immediately was “on my side”, listening to my current life
situations, frustrations, goals, fears, medical issues, in my
relationships, finance, the pursuit of self-love, spiritual beliefs, and
political/world issues that affect me. Dina is extremely responsive, always
in a timely, intelligent, thoughtful, caring manner. In this first month of
“online counseling”, I have really seen and feel a solid, durable
life-level better about my self, managing my current problems and being
active on my life goals. And believe me, these life issues are all daunting
to me (anxiety-ridden and often depressed and introverted), so I absolutely
believe that Dina can help others just as she has helped me. Dina is by far
the best counselor I have met with over my teenage and adulthood life
I also find that the platform is good for me, in that I can be anywhere in the world (with a WiFi or LTE connection on my
phone, and have a video chat, voice chat (phone call), and even text-only
chat, which all 3 have come in handy in the last month. I truly appreciate
the professional and human level of service that she has provided as my
counselor.

Dina has been amazing! She has been helping me in every way!! I appreciate her so much!

Written by L.Y. on Dec 27, 2019 after counseling with Dina for 3 weeks

Dina is a very considerate and dedicated therapist, and I felt honored that when we first met that I was always in her thoughts and I was a priority. I know that Dina is a very busy person but the fact that she makes time for me and is willing to listen to every one of my problems is very much needed in a time like this, so I definitely would recommend Dina to others.

Written by J.U. on Dec 26, 2019 after counseling with Dina for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Right from the start I knew I liked Dina, I think she is a great counselor! She really hears my issues and helps me better understand my situations, I’m very grateful for her.

Written by Z.A. on Dec 20, 2019 after counseling with Dina for 1 week on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

From the start, Dina Vineberg has been attentive and engaging. She consistently demonstrates her dedication to helping me better myself. She's such an easy person to talk to, and I feel safe confiding in her. Without hesitation, I would recommend her to anyone struggling to overcome loss, depression, trauma, or anything else!

Written by J.I. on Dec 20, 2019 after counseling with Dina for 1 week on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Dina has been very helpful in making me see different views on situations that I've placed myself in. She is very understanding and kind and has wonderful insight on what is going on with the issue at hand in a whole. With her help I hope to figure out the mess in my head, so I can move on and be happy without freaking out or being depressed anymore

When looking for a therapist or counselor, it’s really important to find someone you mesh with well. I highly recommend Dina because she is an active, engaged listener and always provides positive feedback. Sessions with her feel almost like a coffee date with a friend! I enjoy that I can feel casual and at ease with her while getting professional perspectives and care. I find her very easy to talk to, she takes the time to get to know you and asks engaging and stimulating questions. Another thing I really appreciate about Dina is how encouraging she is. I always feel validated and heard after our talks. Time flies by too fast. I cannot say enough about her! Thank you Dina for your time, I truly enjoy our talks. ❤️
