Dr. Cohen is a PhD level recovery coach specializing in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). His experiential approach includes a collaboration outside of the traditional office setting and involves facing the daily challenges outside of a therapeutic bubble.  Real Issues, Real Time. He helps the client change their thinking and behavior simultaneously. Being engaged in the client’s life, whether that is a traveling career, office, or movie set allowing the coach to deal with immediately and not have to wait for next week’s sessions.

(Since we cannot predict when an Event Horizon or triggers occur, Dr. Cohen offers 24/7 emergency availability with full continuum of recovery coaching, case and crisis management.) Removing the office setting allows for Client freedom; to express freely whether outdoors, at parks, restaurants, beaches, and even golf courses. The concierge aftercare approach creates freedom and security without an unrealistic bubble environment.

Our Mission

Our mission is to preserve the life you worked so hard for through proprietary solutions before or after the cookie cutter treatment center.

Personal, professional and family experiences lead to the sum of The Parallax Solution. It is a dialectical and cognitive shift – or PARALLAX – in thoughts, actions and results for the way we live life.

The Parallax Solution is here for you and your family, your health, welfare, happiness and independence from what brought you to us.

Receiving expert level clinical care in a comfortable setting is not offered anywhere else.  Dr. Cohen is certified as a California State Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor II (CADAC II), and fully New York state Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor.  He holds a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from (CASAC) Clark University and a Master of Education from Manhattanville College. And, is one of the few Doctorate level recovery coaches to hold a doctorate in Psychology.
