David Frahm, PhD, Psychologist in Ithaca
I consider it a privilege to provide professional guidance for my clients as they work to enhance their lives! I choose from a variety of proven therapy techniques, tailoring the approaches to best meet their individual needs. I treat preteens, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Client symptoms often include anxiety, depression, guilt, anger, couple conflict, or family discord. A sincere respect and caring for my clients is foundational to our work together, and by limiting the size of my caseload I am better able to focus my therapeutic efforts on them.
A psychology doctorate and years of agency and private practice experience position me well to make a difference in the lives of my clients.
I am not a member of any insurance programs, thus enhancing confidentiality for my clients; I provide only summaries of service dates and a diagnostic code on my letterhead that clients then send to their insurer for reimbursement of my fees. I donate 10% of my gross earnings to not-for-profits and charities.
