Yaakov J Kravitz, EdD
I am a licensed psychologist, practicing in the Philadelphia area since 1989. I work primarily with adults struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, addictive behavior, pain, chronic illness, adjustment to illness and disability, and spiritual concerns. I have advanced training in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).
My goal is to provide respectful and compassionate therapy using the most effective approaches possible to help clients find relief from suffering and to meet their personal goals. I emphasize a values based approach to behavior change. Each client learns a variety of mindfulness based practices and behavioral techniques which are customized to his or her individual situation. Therapy focuses on learning the skills needed to actualize important values and pursue chosen goals. Clients learn how to step out of and stay out of old, well practiced patterns of negative thinking and behavior.
