Experience and maturity matter when you are looking for a therapist, hypnosis specialist, or psychologist. Wisdom and sound judgement come from the right combination of training, clinical experience, and life experience. I have been in private practice in Pennsylvania since 1986, specializing in Clinical Psychology, Clinical Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, and Psychotherapy.

In my Hypnosis and Therapy practice, I help people stop smoking, lose weight, manage chronic pain, cope with chronic illnesses, overcome anxiety, eliminate phobias, conquer crippling anxiety disorders, recover from depression, recover from trauma, eliminate dysfunctional habits, and change many unwanted behaviors.

In my Clinical Psychology practice, I do psychological and neuropsychological testing with children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. I perform psychological examinations for law enforcement (PA Act 120), security personnel (PA Act 235), people with DUIs, and people involved in a variety of litigation (criminal and civil). I have served as an expert witness (for both plaintiffs and defendants) in criminal cases, brain injury cases, pain and personal injury cases, posttraumatic stress cases, disability cases, professional malpractice cases, and child custody cases. I also do forensic hypnosis in criminal cases.

Educational Background:
I earned my Bachelors Degree in Psychology in 1975 at the State University of New York College at Oneonta, and my Masters Degrees in School Psychology and Educational Psychology in 1977 at the State University of New York at Albany. I earned my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and Statistics in 1981 at the State University of New York at Albany.

I subsequently interned in Child Psychiatry at the University of Louisville Medical School from 1981 to 1982, and then completed a Research Fellowship in Developmental Psychology at Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey in 1983. I then proceeded to Philadelphia to re-specialize in Clinical Psychology at Hahnemann University Medical School where I studied from 1983 through 1986. I earned a Postdoctoral Certificate of Re-specialization in Clinical Psychology from Hahnemannís Professional Psychology Psy.D. Program in 1986 approved by the American Psychological Association. I became licensed by the Pennsylvania Board of Psychologist Examiners to practice Psychology as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Pennsylvania in 1986.

I have participated in thousands of hours of Continuing Education in Clinical Hypnosis, Psychotherapy, and other topics in Professional Psychology since 1986. I also have taught many Continuing Education workshops for licensed health professionals, and some of my books are approved and used by online Health Professional CE Programs.

Books I've Authored:
I am the author of the self-help book, Hypnotize Yourself Out Of Pain Now! (Published in 2002 by New Harbinger Publications and Second Edition re-published in 2008 by Crown House Publishing). I am the senior author with Moshe S. Torem, M.D. of the self-help book, Coping With Uncertainty: 10 Simple Solutions (2002. New Harbinger).

I was the Chief Psychologist and Director of Biofeedback and Behavioral Medicine in the Department of Psychiatry at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine from 1987 to 1989.

I began my private practice part-time in 1986. I went into full time private practice in 1989. I have been practicing clinical psychology, clinical hypnosis and hypnotherapy in Abington, Pennsylvania since 1987.

I have served on the attending staffs as an Allied Health Professional in Clinical Psychology at Frankford Hospital in Northeast Philadelphia and at Elkins Park Hospital in Elkins Park, PA, and as an Adjunct Faculty Member with the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology at Widener University in Chester, PA. In addition, I have held teaching positions in the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine's Psy.D.
