I am an expert at helping change how they think, feel and behave. I help people find ways to motivate themselves to change and ways to stay on track once they begin. My specialty is addictions, but I see clients with many different kinds of problems, for example, relationship problems, depression, anxiety and procrastination. I help people figure out what they want to do and how to go about doing it. My book Managing Addictions : Cognitive, Emotive and Behavioral Techniques outlines techniques to help people feel and do better next week and next year.
I look for ways people have helped themselves change in the past and for ways they might be willing to use in the future. I combine empathy and understanding with skillful, mindful techniques to help you behave more often in line with your personal goals and values.
I trained with and worked closely (for about 20 years) with Albert Ellis, the founding father of REBT, one of the first non-psychoanalytic therapies. I have been married, divorced and re-married (for over twenty-five years), and have raised five children in NYC. Reality and practice have been good teachers.
