Elizabeth Steinberg, MA is currently in her fourth year of graduate studies at Temple University. She is broadly interested in the influences of social, biological, and contextual factors on the development of externalizing behavior disorders in children.

Steinberg is a therapist at the Child and Adolescent Anxiety Disorders Clinic at Temple University and at the Pediatric Neuropsychology Program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
