My name is Dr. Beverly S. Adler and I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist, Certified Diabetes Educator, Author, and Speaker. Known as “Dr. Bev” to my patients, I see children, adolescents, adults, and seniors in my private practice in Baldwin, New York.  In addition to discussing issues of diabetes management, therapy focuses on processing feelings of denial, depression, anger, guilt, stress and anxiety regarding adjustment to this chronic illness. Utilizing a cognitive-behavioral orientation, I provide individual, family, and/or group therapy sessions. 

I am a member of the American Psychological Association and the Nassau County Psychological Association.  I am also a professional member of the American Diabetes Association as well as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  In addition, I am also a member of the American Association of Diabetes Educators.

I love what I do and feel that I am uniquely qualified to treat patients with diabetes, as I have had type 1 diabetes for the past 40 years. I feel that I am a good role model for my patients, as well as, someone with a lot of empathy for the daily coping that people with diabetes must face. I am able to successfully treat patients with diabetes with an understanding that comes from my own firsthand experience. My own personal philosophy is to take control of my diabetes and not let diabetes control my life. My focus strongly endorses empowering the lives of people with diabetes.

Over the years, I have made numerous presentations to various diabetes support groups, as well as to healthcare professionals and diabetes educators.  I was honored to be twice-invited as the guest speaker to present the Keynote Address to the Long Island Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at their Diabetes Education Seminar.  I was honored to be invited to speak at a Workshop Presentation at the American Association of Diabetes Educators' Annual Meeting 2012 to present the topic: "Women Living with Diabetes -- Success Stories." I was also invited to present the Keynote Address at the JDRF Vancouver, BC, Canada Education Event titled "Type 1 Diabetes, the Unspoken Truths" in May 2014.  In honor of National Diabetes Awareness month, I was invited to present the Keynote Address at the Divabetic - Victory Over Diabetes outreach event in Philadelphia, PA in November 2015. Most recently,  I am speaking about " Helping Clients Achieve Acceptance with Cognitive Behavior Therapy and a Spiritual Approach" at the AADE16 Conference (American Association of Diabetes Educators) in San Diego, CA, in August 2016.


Additionally,  I have published two books which include insightful lessons of empowerment written by successful men and women with diabetes.  I have published articles in print and online about diabetes management - always with the focus on emotional adjustment. I have been quoted in numerous magazines and contributed to a monthly diabetes advice column online. I am a frequent contributor to the Divabetic Diabetes Daily Wire, where I blog about diabetes topics from the psychological perspective.


 Last, but not least, I have been an active member of the Lions Clubs International since 2002. I was the co-chair of the 2014 Lions Strides Walk for diabetes awareness and education. I was recently elected to a two-year term on the Board of Directors for the Lions' Diabetes Education Center (Nassau County).
