If you are looking for a therapist, you are likely to be struggling with emotional or physical pain and have tried a number of solutions that have not been helpful. However, you can learn a variety of mindfulness and behavioral practices that will help you to reduce your suffering and live a more vibrant life. If you feel as though you are encountering barriers to living the life you want, then you can learn to let go of and stay out of old patterns of negative thinking and behavior.
I am Yaacov J. Kravitz, Ed.D., a licensed psychologist providing psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation groups in my Jenkintown, PA office. I have been in private practice in the Philadelphia area since 1989. I also served for 20 years as the psychological consultant to Inglis House, A Wheelchair Community serving individuals with physical disabilities
In my work with individuals and groups I emphasize a values based approach to behavior change. Each client learns a variety of mindfulness based practices customized to his or her individual situation, and how to apply them in difficult situations. I typically work with clients who have depression, anxiety, stress, addictive behavior or chronic illness. Therapy focuses on learning the skills needed to actualize the values important to you as you pursue your chosen goals.
Mindfulness meditation and yoga are part of my personal daily practice. I have received advanced training in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Relational Insight Meditation.
I offer individual and group psychotherapy for adults and seniors. Hours are by appointment. More information about insurance, approaches and issues treated will be found on the About/Profile page. To arrange for an appointment please call 215-635-3011.
