Dr. Jeffrey Axelbank is a licensed psychologist (NJ license number SI003252) in Highland Park, New Jersey. He earned his doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 1992 at the Rutgers University Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. Before opening his private practice in 1995, he worked at the Middlesex County Mental Health Clinic. In addition to his clinical training and work, he also is a management consultant, working with leaders in organizations of all kinds.
Believing that deeper, long-lasting change is better than simply treating symptoms, Dr. Axelbank treats his patients using psychoanalytic techniques, based on long-standing and time-tested psychoanalytic theories. Although these principles were first articulated by Sigmund Freud, many more modern adjustments have been made to them, making the treatments that Dr. Axelbank uses both effective and up-to-date.
In addition to offering individual, couples, and family therapy for people starting at age 7, Dr. Axelbank also provides group therapy. These weekly groups help participants improve their relationships and social skills, as well as providing a solid supportive environment for dealing with life's challenges.
Along with his psychotherapy practice, Dr. Axelbank has been extremely active in professional groups. He was the founding president of the Middlesex County Association of Psychologists, and is a member of the American Psychological Association, the New Jersey Psychological Association, and the American Group Psychotherapy Association. All these affiliations and activities help insure that he remains up-to-date on the latest developments and theories in the field, and upholds the highest ethical standards.
Teaching new therapists is an important part of Dr. Axelbank's repertoire, and he has been training doctoral students in clinical psychology from Rutgers University since June 1995. He also supervises the clinical work of other psychologists and social workers in Middlesex County.
After helping over 325 people, Dr. Axelbank has a wealth of experience. He treats a wide variety of problems and issues, and his friendly and warm style make new patients feel at ease quickly.
