Since that time, Dr. Mosk has been providing customized professional services to help and guide individuals undergoing transitional periods in their lives, organizations experiencing significant changes, and parties involved in lawsuits.
As a highly trained clinician, Dr. Mosk has treated thousands of patients with a broad range of behavioral health disorders over his career. He is the coauthor of the Functional Capacity Assessment Profile, a clinical decision-support tool used to explore an individual’s ability to function effectively, to set treatment goals and to measure therapeutic progress.

This approach is intended to help provide a richer composite of information to educate and inform the court, using a common language understood by all parties involved in the litigation.
