Miriam Fishman, PsyD is a Clinical Psychologist for children, adolescents, and families at Allina Mental Health Abbott Northwestern Clinic.
What is your practice philosophy? I believe psychotherapy is only effective when there is a collaborative relationship between the patient and psychologist. I tend to work from an attachment framework and use Cognitive Behavioral psychodynamic, solution focused, and play therapy.
Home state: New Jersey
What are you passionate about? And why? Helping children and adolescents become psychologically healthy. Children and adolescents often feel alone and lost. I appreciate the opportunity to help them feel heard.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: Teacher because I love working with children and their families.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I have been working with children for over 20 years. Through psychotherapy , I hope that they will gain coping skills and techniques to lead healthy lives.
Something I have learned from my patients is: Over the past twelve years, I have learned that in addition to my patients learning from me, I always learn something from them. I have also learned that collaboration with my client and his or her parents, is key to successful treatment.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): Helping parents and children/adolescents learn how to communicate with each other in a productive way.
My personal health goal is: To return to Zumba, and be more active in general.
