Dr. Steinberger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Steinberger "I was born in the cultural hub of Brooklyn (NY). Skipped 8th grade in Jr. High. Moved with my family to Philadelphia when I was 14. Started Temple University before I was 17. Completed my BA in 3 ½ years and an MA in 2. Worked for the Welfare Department, later as a drug counselor and then as a researcher at Eagleville Hospital. For fun I joined the Abbey Stagedoor Theater and performed in several comedies, including the role of Allen Felix in Play it Again Sam. Then Dr. Frank Farley invited me to the University of Wisconsin – Madison for a PhD, bless him. Within a day of my arrival I fell in love with Madison. I continued acting with the Theater Guild, taking the role of Bogart in Play it Again Sam and the comic lead, Brian, in No Sex Please, We're British. I also enjoyed being a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism. I completed an MSSW, an Internship in Counseling Psychology and the PhD. With great thanks to Dr. Richard Johnson who guided my professional progress through the internship I received a license to practice psychology. In 1990 I went to New York for a Postdoctoral Fellowship with the renowned Dr. Albert Ellis and his staff at his Institute for Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. Upon my return to Madison in 1992 I became a SMART Recovery volunteer. I started a self-help group which became the first local SMART Recovery meeting in Madison. I served on the SR National Board of Directors for ten years, created the 2nd edition of the SR Handbook (2004), available in nine languages. I worked in a group practice from 1994 until it closed in 2010, then started my own private practice."

I am a psychologist who just spent at least one-half hour on the phone with Dr. Steinberger talking about referring a client to him.
