He completed an APA-accredited doctoral internship at Case Western Reserve University’s Health and Counseling Services (Cleveland, OH), providing psychotherapy and psychoeducational assessment to students in undergraduate and graduate programs.

Dr. Birman’s training highlighted the importance of recognizing the intersections between psychological, biological, cultural, and socioeconomic factors that play out within each individual and attachment context. His clinical work focuses on supporting individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, learning disorders, ADHD, relationship and interpersonal difficulties, and personality and self-regulation challenges. Dr. Birman integrates psychodynamic, play-based, family systems, and cognitive-behavioural approaches in psychotherapy with young people. He aims to alleviate individual and family suffering through the cultivation of relationships conducive to open exploration, authentic, attuned, and compassionate interaction, and deeper understanding. Dr. Birman continues to advance his competence through independent study, attendance of lectures and trainings, and weekly case consultation with colleagues. He is currently providing in-person services.
