About Ask the Cognitive Behavior Therapist
March 12, 2009

Welcome to Ask the Cognitive Behavior Therapist. I would like to start off by telling you about myself. I received my Ph. D in Clinical Psychology, with a concentration in Heath Psychology from Albert Einstein College of Medicine /Yeshiva University and my Masters in Development Psychology from Columbia University.
Currently, I practice as a Cognitive-Behavior Therapist and Executive Health and Wellness Coach in a Manhattan based private practice, where I work with children, adolescents and adults as individuals, couples, and groups. I also host private and public workshops and retreats.

My approach can be described as supportive, hands-on, interactive, straightforward and motivating. There is a heavy influence of positive psychology with an emphasis on lifestyle enhancement, balance, performance improvement, health and wellness and stress management. I am not just looking to have my clients feel better, I want them to feel great. So by practicing behavioral medicine and having them set goals that I help them to achieve their lives moves FORWARD.

I use techniques of cognitive restructuring, response prevention, active role-play, real life exposures (where I go with the client somewhere), virtual reality therapy, biofeedback,thought exposure, relaxation therapy, mindfulness and meditative therapies.

For more about my practice and services visit ( or coming soon).

It has, and continues to be an incredibly rewarding experience to help so many people from positions of depression and pain or who have been disabled my a phobia or plagued by anxiety. However, the successes achieved by those who allow me to guide them beyond symptom relief are the most rewarding clients to work with. These clients continue to apply the merits of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and exercise the practice of positive psychology in their lives. It is my job as your guide to introduce you to these merits and encourage your practice so you too can benefit from all the CBT has to offer.

The purpose of this group is to give you accurate feedback, or point you in the right direction, while creating overall awareness.

My goal is to make the concerns and questions often experienced by those seeking assistance more public so insight can be gained by all.

So feel free to ask questions or raise topics that may apply to any areas of your life, be it:

-Personal relationships (romantic, friends, family, etc)
-Social Dilemmas and Network
-Communication styles
-HEALTH AND WELLNESS (Quitting Smoking, Losing weight, Exercise Routines)
-Cognitive Performance Enhancement (attention, concentration, memory)
-Motivation and Procrastination
-Stress Management
-Phobias (subways, planes, elevators, crowds, claustrophobia)
-Obsessions and Compulsions
-Panic Attacks and Anxiety
-Positive Psychology
-Self-Esteem and Image
-Relaxation techniques

I look forward to continuing the experience. Please submit Questions or Comments to
