A Very Practical Therapist, Experienced and Caring
It is my motto that when you are in need, it is my practice to be responsive and available.

I have a multitude of skills and training, and experience of over 30 years as a psychologist both in Rockville, for most of the time, as well as in rural Illinois for several years. I started as a child psychologist and moved on to train and work with the parents too using family therapy, and then became certified as a sex therapist, marriage counselor as well as NLP practitioner. I am also a trained Cognitive and DBT therapist. I do individual, couple and family therapy. I work with anxious, depressed and OCD as well as Bipolars and trauma survivors.. I have experience working with Identity issues (vocational, sexual and gender).

I prefer to be more of a generalist. It keeps me well rounded and interested and my clients enjoy working with me on their marriage, depression, sleep issues and their kids' academic issues.

I allow email communication when appropriate (within limits) to enhance and complement our work. My flexible hours, Sunday and evenings allow you to come after work and on the weekend.

My assistant is trained to give you the hours you prefer, as soon as they become available. My office, in a suburban house, allows you not only privacy but also less impersonal feelings you may get in an office building.
Bio
I was born and raised in Israel, but have been a USA citizen for many years. I was initially trained as an economist (M.A) but was dissatisfied with the prospect of an impersonal profession, when I matured into the recognition that my place is in a helping profession. I went back to school and became a psychologist. Switching vocation gave me insight into vocational choice issues, and the distress involved. I am married for more than 30 years and have two grown daughters married with children,, so I have plenty of experience as a husband and a parent/grandparent as well. I had been through wars in israel and I easily understand and empathize with traumatizing adults.
