Howard M Erman is not currently accepting new clients.
I designed my website, howarderman.com, for people considering psychotherapy and I think my mini-essay, Thoughts on How to Choose a Therapist, will help you even if you end up working with someone else. My own style is relaxed, engaged, sensitive and thoughtful as we explore current problems and underlying issues. I believe if our self-understanding is limited, we keep defeating ourselves in our actions, like being stuck in a hole and trying to dig our way out when that is the only action certain to get us in even deeper. With insight, support, and hard work, change begins.
My strength is a flexible approach informed by psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and family systems work. My training and experiences are unusually broad and deep: three years psychodynamic internship at University of Michigan Psychological Clinic, then twenty years as a Director of Partial Hospital Programs prior to returning to full-time private practice.
I now teach the theory and practice of psychotherapy to clinician practitioners in Madonna University's Master level program, including family systems, couples, cognitive-behavioral, and humanistic therapy. Still, I am repeatedly humbled by how each unique individual is more complex than any one theory. Psychotherapy remains a joint process.
