Robert Cristal, PhD

I am a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Roslyn Heights, New York, specializing in Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT), Relaxation Therapy, Marriage Counseling and Clinical Hypnosis.

My practice is devoted to helping children, adolescents, adults and seniors, in the context of individual psychotherapy, couple’s or marriage therapy, and family therapy.

I began my career as a Clinical Psychologist in a hospital setting more than 25 years ago, in the disciplines of Medical Psychology and General Psychiatry; concurrently, I developed and have since maintained a full-time private practice in Roslyn Heights, NY.
