Bianca Lerer, LMHC

Psychotherapist

Professional statement

Bianca Lerer is an engaging Licensed Mental Health Counselor specializing in the treatment of children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. She makes patients feel comfortable, creating a safe, trusting environment to openly share concerns and difficulties. Using a collaborative, empathetic approach, she takes the time to understand each person’s unique circumstances, and tailors a treatment plan that will produce the best results. Bianca recognizes the important role that friends, family members, and partners can play in one’s life, and incorporates treatment strategies that help patients better manage relationships and overall dynamics. She teaches skills in conflict resolution, effective communication and problem solving that lead to reduced anxiety and improved relationships. Bianca works with a wide variety of mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, and low self-esteem. She is passionate about helping young adults who are transitioning into adulthood, a period often complicated by school stressors, family conflict, and other emotional difficulties. She uses a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, the gold standard for treating anxiety, and Functional Family Therapy (FFT), which focuses on how relationships impact one’s thoughts and behaviors. When appropriate, she has patients invite family members and loved ones in for several sessions to facilitate improved communication and maximize the greatest effect and change. Bianca received her Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Yeshiva University – Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. She was trained in Functional Family Therapy (FFT) by Dr. James Alexander, the founder of FFT, and has trained in CBT at The Beck Institute.

My husband and I, started seeing Bianca for couples therapy. It's been hard to accept that this is something we needed but I'm happy we did it. Change is not going to happen overnight, but we have made a lot of progress.

I am so glad I found Bianca. She made me feel comfortable right away and seemed to really care about me and understand where I was coming from. I felt really good about the plan we came up with and am optimistic that she can really help me.
