Learn about Dr. Abrams

Care Philosophy

A humanistic approach accepting all people without judgments or condescension is essential for psychotherapy. I apply this theme while helping people find new ways to approach life with a minimum of fear, conflict, and inner turmoil. I studied Cognitive Behavior Therapy under its founder, Dr. Albert Ellis, with whom I have written three books including co-authoring his definitive textbook on Personality. I am also on the graduate psychology faculty of NYU teaching this approach to others.

Jersey City, NJ |
He helped save my best relationship. Dr. Abrams always went above and beyond what most therapist will do to help. Very good person.
Gene I when for help with work stress it was the first time I saw a professional of this type. He is a kindly older man - and set me on straighter path in one meeting . He is a bit older than my father but got the issues a young professional faces. And apparently he worked in business so had real world knowledge. I'd definitely see him again.

I went for a required evaluation for a new job and wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. He needed up giving me so much helpful advice that I saw him 4 more times. He really is a great guy.
