About

Hello! I am a clinical psychologist and founder of the Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy in East Brunswick, NJ, where I provide therapy, school-based consultations, and professional development workshops focusing on the evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents with a variety of social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. My treatment approach utilizes research-supported techniques to treat clients according to their individualized needs. Additionally, I collaborate with parents, school personnel, and medical providers, and perform school-based observations when appropriate. I am passionate about helping and strive to provide straightforward feedback, a clear plan, and practical strategies.
I specialize in the evaluation and cognitive-behavioral treatment of youth with Tourette syndrome, the range of anxiety disorders, OCD, trichotillomania (hairpulling), ADHD and disruptive behavior, school refusal/avoidance, and autism spectrum disorders. I also provide independent evaluations, including functional behavioral assessments (FBAs) and behavior intervention plans (BIPs).
In addition to my practice, I am Clinical Assistant Professor and Coordinator of CBT Training for Child Psychiatry Fellows in the Department of Psychiatry at Rutgers-RWJ Medical School. I have previously served as the Assistant Research Director at the Rutgers Tourette Syndrome Program. I'm a frequent workshop presenter for schools and other organizations.

Meir Flancbaum's Groups

DBT Skills Group for Adolescents

This group, led by experts in dialectical behavior therapy, teaches teens and their parent(s) the following DBT skill modules: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and walking the middle path. This engaging and practical group includes handouts, take-home exercises, and experiential activities, and there is no expectation that group members share information that is uncomfortable. Research has shown that caregivers' involvement makes treatment more effective because caregivers learn to serve as coaches for their children and benefit from learning the skills themselves.
