Background

Dr. Klein’s 30 years in private practice and hospital-based practice have allowed him to develop areas of expertise that include clinical assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, adults, groups, and families using traditional psychotherapeutic and cutting-edge techniques, such as treatment of phobias using computer-generated, virtual-reality exposure therapy. Dr. Klein volunteers with the Red Cross as a disaster mental health worker. He has developed a graduate-level teaching curriculum for health administrators and has taught at workshops on burnout in a high-stress setting, sexual offenders programs, creativity, parent education training, small group dynamics and communication, and computer basics for the mental health professional.
