I treat a range of concerns:
my two major sub-specialties are
I also address issues such as:
Anxiety Disorders, including:
- Panic Attack, Phobia, and General Anxiety Disorder

Parent Education: Encouraging Child Creativity, Cooperation, Compliance and Joy.
I help people concerned about the meaning of their daily life and of their religious life.
My approach is to integrate contemporary strategies from secular psychology with
traditional principles from Torah literature. Having been a therapist for over 40 years,
I have learned to use a number of different therapeutic modalities.
In order of their weight in my current practice, these include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Interpersonal Communications Training
Humanistic Existential Logotherapeutic Therapies as practiced by Carl Rogers, Irvin Yalom and Viktor Frankl
Relaxation Training, Guided Imagery and Eriksonian Hypnosis
Therapeutic Dogs for Anxiety and Attachment Disorders
The specific set of techniques that I use are tailored to the needs of the specific client.
I help clients to identify and to draw on their strengths in mastering problems.
My particular approach is called “Solution –Oriented-Psychology” because it helps clients
achieve a solution to their specific goals in short-term-therapy,
rather than through a long-term, global restructuring of their personality.
