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, I am now limiting the new clients I accept into my private practice to 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 – 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 the relationship aspect of your life or reaching a difficult goal(s).

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 implement your unique passions and/or life purpose, so that you can  be living that life you were born to live, for whichever area(s) you choose to work on.

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 for executives and other high achievers, as well as with people all over the world who have read my books,  experienced my audio programs or online courses, who would like to enhance their self-help work or if can use some additional strategies for breaking through an impasse.

For virtual help, there are lots of downloadable books and audio programs I’ve created. Many of them, I now make available to you complimentary, so enjoy!

In addition, throughout this site you will find my many self-help books and programs that have solid track records for helping 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.

And while you’re here, please sign up for our long running and popular series: Weekly Insight for Reaching Your Highest Potential, where each Monday, you will receive a brand-new idea or strategy designed to help you live your best life.

Most health insurance plans provide 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.
