Practice Description:
I am happy to provide telehealth services via both phone and video. Please call or email me to arrange for a telehealth session.

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. I am affiliated with both the University of Pennsylvania and New York University. Go to and 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 I worked with for many years, created REBT. This therapy is the original form of cognitive behavior therapy and has advantages over CBT as it is commonly practiced.

Additional Comments: Please go to my website and listen to the many audio presentations I have on the application of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy to various problems of everyday living. I am confident if you take the time to listen to the audios you will see how REBT is a very useful approach, which will give you, leverage over your most difficult emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal problems. Lastly, every Saturday I do a free Zoom demonstration of my approach with a volunteer who is willing to discuss a problem they are having. I show them the REBT approach and how they can begin to think, feel, and act differently. You can watch this demonstration to see if REBT is something you would like to try.
