I'm a clinical psychologist in private practice for 40 + years & am known as an active, energetic "Therapist's Therapist". I've been training other therapists for 30 years, & work clinically with Adults & Children, Couples & Groups. My approach is Integrative/Eclectic, combining the many therapies I've studied intensively: Clinical Hypnosis, Interpersonal, Cognitive-Behavioral, Gestalt, transactional analysis and Eye Movement Desensitization-Reprocessing [EMD-R]. My special strength as a therapist is developing rapid, warm rapport through direct conversation & open, honest feedback. I've offered 3 yearly All Day Hypnosis Groups, a monthly Training group for therapists, & 3 weekly therapy groups for 35 years.
If I'm not the right therapist, I will suggest another, better suited to the person or issues. I can usually help with a wide variety of Anxieties, Depressions, Relationship and Emotional Intimacy issues, ADHD & physical Pain or Disease.
I love my work and have a happy personal life. I relate and am usually perceived as about 20 years younger than my chronological age. Folks usually find it easy to talk with me, even about very upsetting issues. I'm relatively goal oriented and usually assign homework between sessions for faster comfort and relief.

Bob Dick, PhD, PA's Groups

3 Interpersonal/Cognitive-Behavioral

Group therapy is research supported as usually equally or more effective than individual treatment, and relatively cost-effective. If preparing for Group, I see clients for 3 or so individual sessions: to make a therapeutic bond, & clarify how best to use Group by exchanging the necessary information about each other, goals, and group guidelines. I help each client write their goals as clearly & concretely as possible, so we'll know when they've reached a goal. This "contract with myself" grows progressively more specific & measurable over time, and is reviewed regularly. Openness, honesty, directness, and how you're perceived in relationships is learned experientially.
