Care Philosophy

I can help if you have a child with behavioral or emotional problems. I can also help you if you are an adult suffering with anxiety, depression, or problems with your relationships. Once we share an understanding of the problem/diagnosis, I use supportive evidence based cognitive behavioral therapy tailored to your expressed needs. With children, I always fully involve the parents in treatment. With couples, I provide effective communication communication training for relationship improvement.

Patient Comments (4)
Bayville, NY |
Burps, yawns and makes jokes at inappropriate times. I opened up about something deeply personal and he abruptly ended our session at 30 minutes every time when it's supposed to be 45 minutes. Not very compassionate or helpful either.
in Farmingdale |
I had a great experience with Dr. Eberlin. He could have kept seeing my son and taking my money but he was honest and gave me great advice that I really needed. He was fun and my 8 year old loved him. He never left us waiting and was always prepared for us when we came in.
in Huntington, NY |
He's horrible. This doctor is condescending and rude and should not be in practice. Stay away at all costs.
in Huntingtn ny |
Dr. Eberlin in our opinion should not be practicing. He is both arrogant, and unhelpful. My son was diagnosed with bio-polar 2 and he thought it only nessessary to see him every other week. When we reached out for more help, he became angry and said I know how to do my job. But his job is to help people, which he obviously cannot do. He doesn't work well with my sons psychiatrist and just became angry that we wanted more help. A definite stay away in our book!! Even his hour was only 35 min.
