Dr. Pinchuck believes that psychiatric medication should be an available treatment option without embarrassment, shame, or stigma. He agrees that, “the best solution to stigma in psychiatry is competent care.” Psychiatric medication can be an essential and/or desired, component of an individual’s bio-psychosocial and spiritual program, including when combined with neurofeedback training.
Dr. Pinchuck was the founding director of Chashmal Institute North Jersey Neurofeedback, PC in 2006. He believes in a holistic and integrative approach to mental and physical health, including working as a team with other mental health providers and other traditional and complementary and alternative medicine practitioners. He attempts to minimize or eliminate the use of psychiatric medication with neurofeedback, when desired and possible. Dr. Pinchuck provides neurofeedback for optimal functioning and peak performance training without a psychiatric record.
Dr. Pinchuck moved to Ramat Bet Shemesh, Israel with his wife and children in 2012 and has reopened Chashmal Institute Neurofeedback with office locations there and in Jerusalem.

He has been extremely successful helping victims of and families challenged with the trauma of terrorism as well as sexual trauma. As a master educator, he has also trained countless psychologists and other mental health professionals in trauma techniques. Techniques that save lives and give people their lives back.
Rabbi Legomsky's field is education and he's a master educator. There are three types of people - practitioners, innovators, and educators. When studying from a master educator, one can learn, assimilate and implement a lot of new information very efficiently. This is really important in today's culture where people have very little time to learn new things.
Rabbi Legomsky's practical experience guiding individual and group sessions has taught him to be a very practical person. He wants techniques that work quickly and deeply.
