A Personal Message from Dr. Gravitz

A Personal Message from Dr. Gravitz

Welcome to my website that offers hope when there is adversity in the family. My name is Dr. Herb Gravitz and I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in the impact of illness, addiction, and trauma on the individual, the family, and society.

I have created this site to offer timely and innovative knowledge to help you and your loved ones live a more meaningful, full, and triumphant life, regardless of your circumstances. I know this is a bold assertion, for when extreme difficulties strike, such as serious mental or physical illness, they can rip the heart, soul, and spirit from every member of the family. The key is to understand what distinguishes those who thrive in the midst of any situation from those who succumb to the perils of life's adversities.In a series of books, articles, pamphlets, and tapes, I point to the path that family members and other loved ones can take to triumph over family and life crises. These easily understood concepts can help anyone dealing with high-impact calamities to overcome adversity and create a life worth living.Regardless of your life situation, you will be shown a path of accelerated learning in order to do the following:

  • Discover how adversity can be the soil from which triumph springs
  • Maintain clarity in the midst of chaos
  • Use time-tested, proven strategies to move beyond life's hurts
  • Transform stressful, taxing emotions in order to experience new freedom and comfort
  • Uproot old resentments
  • See the bigger picture of life so that you don't become bogged down in daily struggles
  • Identify seven stages of healing, twelve coping strategies, and much more.

I wish you well on your journey and hope that you use this website as a resource in your journey to triumph over life's major wounds.
