‘You must understand that you’re in charge of your life and you can choose which direction to go...’ No one had ever said that to me before. No one had ever taught me that I could choose to be an independent, empowered man - that I had a choice. No one had ever treated me like a man. I never got that in my home. Dr. Cohen helped me take my life back.

the journey

During my 25-year career as a psychotherapist, I have helped individuals and couples stabilize and resolve mood disorders, recover from alcoholism and other addictions, heal from trauma, and communicate more effectively. As a psychotherapist, my focus was on diagnosing and treating mental health problems, and my purpose was to provide treatment that effectively lessened or resolved mental health symptoms. clients who recovered and 'got better' worked hard, kept an open mind, and welcomed change. In time, healing occurs, and DEBILITATING mental health symptoms lessen or resolve. Soon, life goals that couldn't be accomplished when you were ill become possible. Before psychotherapy, your mental health problems prevented you from living a full, satisfying, and joyous life. therapy, when successful, leads to a strong desire to improve your life and meet new goals. You are now ready to begin working with a life coach.

Different than therapy and counseling, life coaching does not treat mental illness. Life coaching focuses on individual and relational change, life and professional growth, and increasing personal happiness and satisfaction. Individual, couples, and business coaching focuses on goal attainment and doing the work necessary to reach your personal goals. I provide life, couples, and professional coaching to all of my clients. working together, we identify your personal goals, and take the steps necessary to achieve them. My goal is to help you create lasting happiness and to live the life you've always imagined you could live.

time-limited, one-on-one and group trainings are also available, and cover life skills and professional topics. Taking part in a training is a structured, focused way of gaining new knowledge and learning new skills. Topics include self-awareness, assertiveness, communication, relational skills, time management, motivational enhancement, and more.

 Psychotherapy, Psychologist, Therapy and life coaching in South New Jersey and Philadelphia
When I first met Larry, I was somewhat unsure and unable to find my way. He helped me find my way, and he provided just the right amount of ‘push’ to guide me toward meeting my goals. I did not think much of myself for a very long time. Larry encouraged me to seek out and apply for graduate school. I now have a career that I love, in a profession that I love. The transformation that took place in me and in my life is truly wonderful.

A reasonable expectation is that life coaching will help you change your life and move you toward happiness and fulfillment. Life coaching can help you build a greater sense of self-worth, teach you how to set boundaries in your relationships, help you become a more successful professional, and help you overcome lifelong struggles. If you're a procrastinator, you will learn to master it. If you struggle in relationships, we will focus on communication skills. are you looking to change careers, open your own business, or just be better at your job or profession? Working together, we will address problematic issues along side strengthening your self-esteem, working on how you can be better at what you do, and how you can move closer to meeting your career goals. all of this and more is addressed in life coaching. Coaching ignites the creative spark, bringing with it fresh strategies, new ideas, and new ways to improve. expect me to confront you when you're not focused and on task. I may challenge you to correct faulty thinking patterns and set aside behaviors that are counterproductive and getting in your way. I will help you recognize opportunity when you do not, and I will remind you often of the important of gratitude - for what you have, and for the gift of being alive. I strive to create a Kind, non-judgmental space in which clients can grow and change in freedom. I provide a safe, accepting environment that allows one the space to do the work of self-discovery and begin the process of life transformation.

I have complete trust and faith in Dr. Cohen’s guidance, as much as I would with close family and friends - and at times more so. Larry made it clear that I can count on him if I ever have a question, a concern, or if I find myself in crisis. I am forever grateful and relieved that someone so compassionate and generous as Dr. Cohen is there to help guide me through life’s journey. I thought I had it together - and I did in many ways - but Larry helped me identify my blind spots. I am back on track, having learned new, more effective ways of doing things.

Getting to success

People struggle to succeed and reach their goals due to internal and external factors. Internal obstacles such as fear of success and self-sabotage prevent you from living a happy and successful life. If needed, we will spend time correcting thinking errors and dysfunctional behaviors. In order to meet your goals, you must have a clear understanding of yourself and the world. You cannot move forward if your foundation is based on faulty belief systems. Identifying and correcting internal obstacles will change your life, freeing you up to be more successful and more satisfied. When it is you who is the obstacle to your own success, we will work hard to correct this. We can be both our own obstacle and our own answer to finding happiness and success. Resolving thinking errors and changing dysfunctional behaviors will change your life dramatically, and you will find yourself more capable than you imagined.


"You are your own obstacle to your success, and you are also your own answer. Resolving thinking errors and dysfunctional behaviors opens up a new world, where you find yourself more capable than you imagined."

Being self-aware is essential to the change process and to creating happiness and success. Perhaps the most important thing I’ve ever learned is that I cannot rely on things outside of myself to esteem myself. You must recognize and accept that you have no control over external factors and that you alone create self-esteem, personal happiness and success. If you rely on external factors to define yourself, feelings of success and self-worth can collapse instantaneously when these external factors change for the worse. Success comes from within. Self-esteem based on that which is outside of the self is crazy-making. As you have no control over externals, your life will be in constant flux, dependent on the ups and downs of the externals you rely on. External factors come and go, and you have no control over them. Life coaching focuses on learning to be mindful and self-aware, to create true self-esteem, not other-esteem. Self-awareness is the bedrock upon which success is built. You will experience little or no progress if internal and externals obstacles to your happiness and success are ignored. We will identify any internal and external obstacles that are in your way, and we will overcome them. With focus and hard work, your life begins to change – your life begins to click, and there's no better feeling. Next, your life is improving, your goals are being met, and you start to reach farther than you ever dared before.

I came to know a man who provided me, for the first time in my life, something I was never given — a healthy, loving, authentic role model who nurtured and cared for me. He taught me how to be a man. And he showed me that I am lovable. Of this I am certain: what he does is not something that just anyone can do. I have walked in my life a similar path of pain that Larry has walked in his. He is a very special human being. I don’t know what would have become of me had Larry not been there to take hold of my hand when I reached up from the depths.
