About me

I’m Dr. Rivka Edery, Psy.D., M.S.W., L.C.S.W., CCTP-II, M-RAS, CAIMHP, CSTS! I have been a highly intuitive clinician, mental health writer, and researcher in practice since 2009.

Certified in: Addictions-Informed Mental Health Professional (CAIMHP), Certified Shame-Informed Treatment Specialist (CSTS), Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level 2 (CCTP-II), Masters Registered Addictions Specialist (M-RAS), and several marriage counseling certifications. Trained in: Emotionally Focused Therapy: Attachment-Based Interventions (EFT), Polyvagal Theory, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Dr. Edery remains dedicated to supporting those who lead more meaningful lives.

If one has an insecure attachment style, it affects every aspect of one’s life and all relationships. Learning about attachment style can significantly aid your efforts in creating secure inner attachment through inner reparenting and empathic responsiveness. I help my clients do this by teaching them how to heal their Inner Child and making peace within. Connecting with various parts of oneself allows one to un-blend from traumatized inner parts, move out of the Drama Triangle, and move forward meaningfully.

This is true whether you are single, in a meaningful relationship, or looking to resolve a specific problem.

If your intuition tells you I can support your process, I welcome you to contact me.

Dr. Rivka A. Edery, Psy.D., M.S.W., L.C.S.W., CCTP-II, CAIMHP, CSTS, M-RAS
