Dr. Wilensky is a clinical psychologist who conducts psychotherapy (ages 13 through geriatric), and psychological testing (ages six through geriatric). He also supervises pre-doctoral interns and postdoctoral residents. His psychotherapy integrates patient-centered, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and experiential (clinical hypnosis; gestalt; mindfulness) approaches for mood disorders, anxiety, anger, psychotic disorders, and life-transition concerns. His psychological testing can help determine differential diagnosis and guide treatment planning for cognitive (intelligence, attention, memory), achievement, and emotion/personality-related concerns along with specialized issues including pre-surgical assessment, fitness for duty, and disability determination. Dr. Wilensky also evaluates asylum applicants, many on a pro-bono basis, who have a documented history of torture or other forms of oppression in their home countries.
