Practice Information
Therapy is an investment. Much is at stake. Is it your career, your marriage or your life? Not all therapists are equally skilled. I am a very well trained doctoral level psychologist. In addition to my private practice I work at the University of Pennsylvania and teach graduate students at New York University. Do your homework before you commit time and money. Listen carefully to my audio presentations so you can make an informed decision. I want you to appreciate my expertise and how I will help you before you see me. I will show you how not to upset yourself when other people and life are difficult so you can solve the problems you face. I teach skills and how to solve problems.

I will teach you how to control your emotions and counterproductive behavior. I teach new ways of thinking so you take control of what is well within your control. I send you customized email to help you to work at your therapy & to solve your problems today rather than at some vague point in the future.

I get to the bottom of your problems quickly. I will give you useful feedback from the first session. The famous Dr. Albert Ellis who created REBT trained me to do psychotherapy. REBT is the original form of cognitive behavior therapy and has advantages over CBT as it is commonly practiced.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I work at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine where I have assisted in numerous research studies. I now work in the outpatient psychiatry center of the University of Pennsylvania Health System. I also teach a graduate course in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at New York University. My private practice is in Rittenhouse Square and is for adults and couples who are looking for a sensible, problem focused therapy to cope more effectively with life's difficulties.

I am a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (BA, MS) and Hofstra University (PhD).
