Dr. Michael R Slavit

Psychologist , PhD

(401) 680-1203
Understanding my clients' view of their world is of utmost importance. I take your feelings very seriously. My specialty areas are tension reduction, stress management, alleviating depression, unresolved grief, ADHD, relationship issues, and health/fitness/weight. I work with individuals ages 15 through 99, as well as with couples. I use a variety of methods depending on the client and problem. For instance, I rely on expressive therapy for unresolved grief, whereas I use mainly behavior therapy for tension reduction. Above all, I check frequently with my clents to be sure the methods I am employing are meeting their needs.
I have been helping clents relax for 35 years, continually refining my methods. I often help clients experience deep relaxation when they had failed in prior attempts. I balance challenge and support. Board Certified in Cognitive and Behavioral Psychology, but my most important credential is the confifdence of my clients.
At the end of session #1 clients almost always tell me they feel comfortable with me. Clients are very often uncomfortable about making that first contact.
