I understand the importance of developing resilience-to-change in order to effectively cope with major life transitions; loss and endings (divorce, retirement, serious medical illness) as well as beginnings (new relationships, marriage, birth of a child, starting a career). Without such resilience, life can feel overwhelming, self esteem becomes precarious, and mood can dip dramatically. As a licensed clinical psychologist, with more than 30 years experience, my clients value my warm, collaborative approach to relationship issues, executive stress, inter-generational conflicts, mid-life issues, and self-defeating behaviors that keep people stuck.

Previous experience as an officer and director of a publicly traded company, as well as in the practice of business law, have uniquely equipped me to help entrepreneurs and executives with a variety of interpersonal business-related issues. I understand legal and business issues in a way that facilitates working with those having difficulties with employers, employees, and co-workers. I can also effectively help with difficulties relating to the stress of balancing work with other life issues.

I also work with adolescents who face more than the usual growing pains, parents who want to do a better job with their children, and couples (in both traditional and non-traditional relationships), helping them to relate in more emotionally-satisfying ways.

As Co-Director for 10 years, of the Center for Coping with Chronic Illness, I have helped patients and their families, as well as professional caregivers, deal with the impact of the ongoing medical concerns.

I work with clients in individual, couples or group psychotherapy or a combination of these, depending on the goals of treatment.

In general the clients I see in psychotherapy include homemakers, college students, stressed executives, academics, and other high functioning professionals. Many of my clients find my background in law and business to be a good fit for understanding their issues and conflicts.

Bio
Dr. Kron is a licensed clinical psychologist, psychodynamically trained, who works in a proactive and collaborative way with his clients.

He is particularly sought out as a psychologist for his expertise in relationship issues, marital conflicts, and the struggles of business leaders who, despite considerable success, feel there is something missing in their lives. He also works with adolescents who face more than the usual growing pains, parents who want to do a better job with their children, and patients with chronic illnesses and their caregivers.

Previous experiences as an officer and director of a publicly traded company, as well as in the practice of business law, have uniquely equipped him to help entrepreneurs and executives with a variety of interpersonal business-related issues. He understands legal and business issues in a way that facilitates working with those having difficulties with employers, employees, and co-workers. He can also effectively help with difficulties relating to the stress of balancing work with other life issues.

As Co-Director for 10 years of the Center for Coping with Chronic Illness, he has helped patients and their families deal with the impact of ongoing medical concerns, the turmoil involved in the constant re-adjustments that medical illnesses require, and the feelings of dependence, guilt and frustration that often arise.

Clinical Positions and Advisory Boards: Following Dr. Kron’s internships at Sinai Hospital and Medical Center Psychiatric Associates in Detroit, MI, and the Ridgewood Psychology Center in Royal Oak, MI, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Detroit Psychiatric Institute. He then spent 10 years as a staff psychologist at Hutzel Hospital in Detroit. He has served on the board of several professional organizations including the Michigan Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology, the Michigan Group Psychotherapy Society, and the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy.
