Specializing in adolescent issues, substance abuse, stress related disorders, and life transitions, Hal Ketofsky provides outpatient counseling for teens, adults, and families, in a comfortable private setting.

His approach is eclectic, with a combination of client centered and cognitive-behavioral philosophy.  He believes that the most important predictor of potential success in therapy is the initial connection and development of the client-therapist relationship. 

To treat substance abuse issues, the 12-step philosophy, cognitive-behavioral techniques, biofeedback therapy, and laboratory drug screening are utilized.  Working closely with school staff, and parole/probation officers, alcohol and drug assessment services ( SASSI/ASI) and other diagnostic tools (BDI & BAI) can be provided.  Schools can receive services on campus as well as “out of office” locations as needed.

If more serious issues are present, referrals are made to Psychiatrists and other specialized professionals as needed.
