Dr. Julian Herskowitz has been a practicing clinical psychologist for over 35 years and has directed the largest and most successful branch of the only national anxiety and phobia treatment center in the country, TERRAP Anxiety and Phobia Care. Dr. Herskowitz has treated thousands of patients with complex anxiety and fears, as well as other related issues.
All too often in his work with his patients, Dr. Herskowitz uncovered instances of significant trauma which necessitated a change in his approach. After attending many conferences on trauma and studying independently, he was awarded a certificate as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. His increasing awareness of how much trauma effects the lives of so many people, and how well-intentioned professionals were not applying the most up-to-date and effective methods to treat the issues that emanate from traumatic experiences, he was motivated to co-found a new, specialized treatment center (STEPS).
