About Yaacov Kravitz

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.

In addition to my psychology practice I have also worked as a congregational rabbi, a campus rabbi, a hospital chaplain, and as pastoral counselor. I have spent 30 years working on the integration of spirituality and psychology and have developed a comprehensive program for learning the skills of Spiritual Intelligence®SM based on the ancient mystical teachings of the  Kabbalah and the insights of modern psychology. While my psychology practice is limited to Pennsylvania, I provides spiritual direction and distance learning programs on psycho-spirituality, mindfulness meditation and Kabbalah anywhere/ Details of these programs and information about spirituality and Spiritual Intelligence are available at www.spiritualintelligence.com.
