Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Abrams "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."

I had to wait to see him but it was worth my time. He clearly worked to make each session important. He was kind and understanding.

Just left and decided to write this while it was fresh. I’m in the music field - doing well- but it was getting to me. He was like a cross between a music manager and a father. I feel better as I write this. Supreme.
