Welcome to Dr. Carol Fishbein, Ph.D.

Thank you for visiting the website of Dr. Carol Fishbein, Ph.D.  This may be the first step you take toward enhanced happiness and health. 

My private practice is located in Palm Beach Gardens, in between Jupiter and Palm Beach, Florida.  For over 26 years, I have specialized in treating  ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, EATING DISORDERS, OCD and COUPLES COUNSELING. I work with adolescents, adults and older children who are struggling with these problems.  In additon, when requested, I also treat difficulties ranging from changes or stressors to more serious disorders and diagnoses.

How to Contact Us:

My Treatment Philosophy:

It is my belief that we all can benefit from learning more about ourselves and from having the unbiased support of another person.  The more understanding we have into our lives, our thoughts, our behavior, and our emotions, the more choices we can create and the more power we have to make improvements in ourselves.  Sometimes we benefit most from seeking aid from a professional therapist.  It is my life's work to help people find the way to describe their frustrations and pain, design aims, make changes, and thereby achieve a greater sense of inner contentment and happiness as a result.

I am a Psychologist, a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and a Certified Eating Disorders Specialist (C.E.D.S.).  This means that I have studied intensely beyond the doctorate standard.  Formerly I was a teacher at the college and elementary school levels.  I have been the first President of The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness and I have been on the boards of several charitable organizations including The American Health Association and The Jewish Family and Children’s Services of West Palm Beach. I've been interviewed for television, radio, and newspapers. I've published research on Marriage and presented lectures on Eating Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Marriage, Parenting and Power Aging.

In each person’s individualized therapy with me, you will be provided the most up to date and evidence-based researched treatment for your problem(s). We will explore your history and hopes. We will help you to identify goals that you would like to achieve, examine the thought processes that cause pain, and improve your subsequent life experiences so that you can flourish.  By the conclusion of this relatively short-term therapy, you will feel and act more positively, productively, calmly and with more respect toward yourself and others.

Please take some time to further browse my website. The website is being continuously updated. I hope that it will answer any questions you may have. I also hope that it leads you to take another step toward improved well-being, by contacting me.
