what methods do I use?

My approach is to integrate contemporary strategies from secular psychology with
traditional principles from Torah literature. Having been a therapist for over 40 years,
I have learned to use a number of different therapeutic modalities.
In order of their weight in my current practice, these include:

cognitive-behavioral-therapy cognitive-behavioral-therapy ( CBT)

people communicating interpersonal-communications-training

maslow needs hierarchy humanistic/existential/logotherapeutic therapies,
as practiced by Carl Rogers, Irvin Yalom and Viktor Frankl

floating in ocean relaxation training, guided imagery and Eriksonian hypnosis

a mind with tree branches and roots psycho-dynamic therapy

dog face therapeutic dogs for anxiety and attachment disorders

  The specific set of techniques that I use are tailored to the needs of the specific client.
  I help clients to identify and to draw on their strengths in mastering problems.
  My particular approach is called “Solution –Oriented-Psychology” because it helps clients
  achieve a solution to their specific goals in short-term-therapy,
  rather than through a long-term, global restructuring of their personality.
