I am a psychologist, who for over 40 years has helped clients–individuals, couples, and families to achieve long term results with their most difficult personal, emotional, lifestyle, career, parenting and relationship challenges –in the shortest time possible.
However, my private practice is now limited to helping high achievers and those striving to be. My results-oriented approach may be appropriate for you if you are committed to reaching your highest potential and/or operating at peak performance– in one or more areas of your life, such as: starting or maximizing a business, making a career or other major life change(s), optimizing a specific aspect of your life or reaching one or more difficult goals.
Although my cognitive-behavioral approach is relatively short-term, the clients I typically see are seeking help beyond treatment for anxiety, depression and stress related disorders, where many therapies end. Our mission together is to help you first identify, then clear away the emotional obstacles that block you from accessing what I call your zone of genius, where you are guided principally by your unique passions and/or life purpose. For whichever area(s) you choose to work on, our goal is for you to be living the life you were born to live.
My boutique practice is located in Center City Philadelphia. Please click here for more information about me; and feel free to contact me directly, if you would like to discuss our working together or have any questions.
I also do coaching sessions both in my office and by Skype, FaceTime or telephone — mainly with people around the world who have read my books, experienced my audio programs or online courses — who would like to enhance their self-help work, or can use some additional strategies for breaking through an impasse.
For virtual help, there are lots of downloadable programs I’ve created that are accessible on this site. We now make most of them available to you for free, so you can be working on your issues seconds from now…Enjoy! Over the years, I’ve heard from many people who have found that the strategies on these audio programs, either greatly reduced the length of their psychotherapy, or — in some cases — even made therapy sessions unnecessary.
In addition, throughout this site you will find my many self-help books and programs that have solid track records for having helped countless people around the world for decades. Many are also used by mental health professionals and coaches to supplement the therapy or life coaching they provide.

Most health insurance plans provide some out of network reimbursement for sessions with a licensed psychologist. At each session, you are given a receipt with the information necessary (such as a diagnosis and procedure code) for the reimbursement that your plan provides. In addition; Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted for payment.
In a survey conducted by Philadelphia Magazine of psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals–a total of over 4,000 in the tri-state region of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware—Dr. Michael Broder was named one of the top and most universally respected psychotherapists for both adults and couples.
