About Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy

Our Mission

Patient Care: I strive to provide evidence-based and compassionate psychological care with integrity, commitment to service, and dedication to excellence. I strive to deliver such care as efficiently as possible in order to alleviate suffering and facilitate emotional independence.

Public Education: I strive to educate the public about Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. Millions of people have been helped by REBT since its inception in 1955 without the assistance of a professional. Others do not know how REBT is a form of cognitive behavior therapy that has distinct emphases and advantages. Therefore, I include on this site, many audio presentations on the application of REBT to various topics. Together with the many books on REBT linked to this site my hope is that anyone wishing to learn more about this very useful approach to problems of everyday living can do so. 

Education of Professionals: I am a psychologist who has been fortunate to have been extensively trained by Dr. Albert Ellis, who has been considered one of the most influential psychotherapists in history. In a survey conducted in 1982 among approximately 800 American clinical and counseling psychologists, Albert Ellis was considered even more influential in the field than Sigmund Freud. Prior to his death in 2007, Psychology Today described him as the “greatest living psychologist.” Given the skillset I possess as a result of this exceptional training background, I believe I have an obligation to provide clinically focused educational experiences to future mental health practitioners. Through dedicated mentorship, I strive to train the country’s future cognitive behavioral therapists and leaders of psychotherapy. I do this by providing training services at the Albert Ellis Institute in New York City, providing consultation to junior colleagues interested in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and cognitive behavior therapy in general, as well as serving as an adjunct professor of applied psychology in the Steinhardt School of New York University.

Leadership: I serve on the editorial board of The Journal of Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavior, a distinguished academic, peer reviewed, scientific journal. The Journal is one of the oldest journals in the field of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, officially started in 1966 under the name of Rational Living, published by the Albert Ellis Institute.
