Professional Statement

Hello!

My name is Dr. Bruce Eimer and I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Florida. I am originally from Philadelphia where I practiced psychology since 1986. I have over 34 years of experience providing counseling and hypnotherapy to individuals and couples. I have been in private practice for over 30 years. I was the Director of Pain Psychology at a major teaching hospital for seven years and I have held multiple clinical appointments at numerous hospitals.

I moved to South Florida in 2019 and serve the communities of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, Wellington, West Palm Beach, and surrounding areas. I offer convenient online appointments so you can have therapy with me from anywhere.

I earned my doctorate in Educational Psychology from the State University of New York at Albany in 1981 and completed my post-doctoral residency and fellowship in Clinical Psychology at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia in 1986. I trained in Cognitive Therapy at Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Therapy Center at the University of Pennsylvania and in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at Hahnemann University Medical School. I have years of training in Clinical Hypnosis and Hypnoanalysis. I am an EMDR trained therapist and have also trained in Thought Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and other Energy Psychology approaches. I also trained in Imago Relationship Couples Therapy with Dr. Harville Hendrix.

I am a Board-Certified Diplomate in Behavioral & Cognitive Psychology with the American Board of Professional Psychology and a Certified Hypnotherapist. I am a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association.

My approach to therapy is client centered. I approach all clients with deep respect. I have studied and mastered many different treatment approaches, but I formulate my treatment approach to fit each individual client. In my work, I integrate several different forms of psychotherapy which include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Clinical Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy.

I have experience working with a wide range of challenging conditions, including but not limited to trauma, depression, suicide risk, grief, loss, anxiety, chronic pain, and chronic medical conditions.

I enjoy teaching and routinely provide training workshops to professional therapists across the United States. I also enjoy writing and I am the author or co-author of nine books, as well as the author of dozens of book chapters and journal articles. On the personal side, I enjoy the outdoors, especially the natural wonders of Florida, and I enjoy spending time with my family and my German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois Dogs.

Warmly,
Dr. Bruce
