I am a psychologist, who for over 40 years has helped clients–individuals, couples, families and organizations to achieve long term results with their most difficult personal, emotional, motivational, lifestyle, career, business, parenting and relationship challenges. 

If you are committed to doing what it takes to reach your highest potential in the shortest time possible and/or operate at peak performance in one or more areas of your life — such as: starting or maximizing a business,  making a career or other major life change(s), optimizing a specific aspect of your life, motivating others, or reaching difficult goals — my strategic brand of cognitive behavioral, results oriented therapy/coaching may be appropriate for you.  However, at this point in time, my schedule very rarely permits me to personally take on a new client.

Our mission together is to help you first identify, then clear away the emotional obstacles that block you from accessing what I call the zone where you are guided principally by your unique passions and/or life purpose. For whichever life area(s) you choose to work on, this simply means for you to be living the life you were born to live.

My boutique practice is located in Center City Philadelphia. Please click here for more information about me; and feel free to contact me directly, if you would like to discuss the feasibility of our working together or have any questions. As long as face to face meetings are deemed unsafe due to the crisis brought on by this Coronavirus pandemic, all sessions will be virtual!

For immediate help, there are lots of downloadable programs I’ve created that are accessible on this site.  We now make most of them available to you for free, so you can be working on your issues seconds from now…Enjoy! Over the years, I’ve heard from many people who have found that the strategies on these audio programs, either greatly reduced the length of their therapy, or — in some cases — even made actual therapy sessions unnecessary.

In addition, throughout this site you will find my many self-help books and programs that have solid track records for having helped countless people around the world for decades. Many are also used by mental health professionals and coaches to supplement the therapy or life coaching they provide.

My Center City Philadelphia Offices are located at:

  • Academy House, 1420 Locust Street, Suite 7G, Philadelphia, PA 19102; Phone: 215-985-1132. (This is the office where I will resume seeing my private clients once the Coronavirus is over, of course.) email: MB@MichaelBroder.com

Most health insurance plans provide some out of network reimbursement for sessions with a licensed psychologist. At each session, you are given a receipt with the information necessary (such as a diagnosis and procedure code) for the reimbursement that your plan provides. In addition; Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted for payment.


In a survey conducted by Philadelphia Magazine of psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals–a total of over 4,000 in the tri-state region of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware—Dr. Michael Broder was named one of the top and most universally respected psychotherapists for both adults and couples.
