Dr. Tali Yuz Berliner
Dr. Berliner is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in individual therapy for adults and older adolescents with a variety of presenting issues such as eating disorders, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, grief/loss, and life transitions.
Dr. Berliner understands that each individual and their struggles are unique and therefore she adopts an eclectic approach to her practice. She utilizes the therapeutic relationship along with skills-based interventions (i.e. cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing) to help clients develop insight into their distress and to facilitate desired change.
Dr. Berliner recognizes that seeking treatment can be intimidating and the decision to do so takes courage. She therefore strives to create a warm environment that will allow clients to comfortably explore dysfunctional patterns they are unable to break on their own. The therapeutic process with Dr. Berliner is collaborative and she is known for her empathic style, gentle directness and use of humor which she strongly values. She lives in Aventura with her husband, son, and dog. She loves trying new restaurants, traveling, laughing, and spending time with family and friends.
Dr. Berliner received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Florida and her Master’s and Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University. She has provided professional psychological services in a residential treatment center, partial-hospitalization program, outpatient mental health center, and on university campuses.
Dr. Berliner received intensive training at Northwestern University’s Counseling and Psychological Services Center before taking her position as a primary therapist at Oliver-Pyatt Centers, a residential treatment center for women with eating disorders. She held this position for three years before becoming clinical director at Oliver-Pyatt Centers.
Dr. Berliner is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), Florida Psychological Association (FPA), and the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (IAEDP – Miami Chapter).
