The Doctor is "IN"
I am a licensed psychologist and I specialize in individual psychodynamic psychotherapy for children, adolescents and adults. My style is very interactive and eclectic. After 20 years of experience I have developed many skills to treat a wide variety of issues. I use the technique that matches the patient, their personality, their age, and their needs. Most often patients are discussing their current problems. I help people understand how their past affects the present; how to analyze their dreams, and most importantly, how to resolve the psychological dilemmas which are impeding their ability to enjoy life. Sometimes I will use behavior modification and relaxation, sometimes I will use play therapy, but the most important element of the treatment is the special relationship that is established with each patient.
I treat patients who suffer from anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, trauma, sleep problems, among many other kinds of diagnoses. Should you be interested in making an appointment please feel free to contact me at my office in Port Washington, New York by calling: 516 944-3786.
In order to change a behavior one has to be committed to the change. It takes time, effort and discomfort to establish a new pattern, a new way to respond.
Change the way you think:
This is the most important change. You need to stop thinking like a victim.
OUR MISSION: To provide methods of prevention and intervention in hazing; to explain the psychology of hazing in high school, college, the military, and the workplace. Educational information is included for use in anti-hazing initiatives among fraternities, sororities, teams, and other groups.
On Tuesday, Weiner, 48, a New York City mayoral candidate, held a news conference admitting that he continued to engage in inappropriate online chats even after he was forced to resign from Congress in 2011 because he had sent graphic messages — including lewd photos of himself — to women on Twitter.
We conducted an online psychological survey that investigated sexting behaviors and power. We found that 66% of the group sexted. A description of the study and the complete results are presented here. Sexting is an important topic because it is a risky behavior that may endanger lives. However, it is also a widespread phenomenon that is prevalent among people between the ages of 13-26; namely those who have grown up with digital technology.
All parents want their children to be “well-behaved” and so they discipline them. I believe that some kinds of discipline are more effective than others. But ultimately our task is to teach children self-control so they can navigate through life all by themselves.
One way to improve behavior is to reinforce a behavior by giving rewards.
Do you wish you had an “off” button so you could stop thinking about the same thing over and over? Do you feel the need to repeat a ritual that would be embarrassing if others knew what you were doing? Are you so competitive that if you are not the winner or the absolute best you feel deeply upset?
Though difficult, it is essential that parents, teachers and caregivers stabilize themselves after a tragedy occurs, so that they can create a solid foundation for their children. Here are some tips to help us cope when faced with unbearable situations.
Be A Star! is a simple, effective tool that gives parents a consistent, structured and successful method of discipline. Children actually see that they have control of their own behavior.

Sleep serves many physiological and psychological purposes. It is essentially a reset button for your organs and brain. When you sleep your brain is working, it is processing information it received during the day. When we sleep we are also resolving the psychological problems that we are facing; some of which are expressed in our dreams.
The most powerful teaching method is called mirroring. Sometimes parents, themselves, are actually victims, or feel victimized, and act that way. They talk about how they have been taken advantage of, how things are not fair, and how they have been bullied.All kids mimic what their parents do. Therefore, they sometimes mimic their parents’ victim posture.
