Weissman is also well known in aiding those who struggle with chronic illness and chronic pain.
Are you stressed? Is your body speaking to you with hard to understand symptoms and challenges? There's a tension that remains when a task is incomplete. This tension is not only related to the projects we have yet to complete but also relates to the internal tension from not speaking our truth. Dr. Weissman is known for treating those with anxiety-based stress conditions. His skills in mind body medicine and clinical psychology allow him to rapidly assess the depth and breath of stress in a person's body and in their life and to co-create a individualized treatment plan leading to greater self-love & personal empowerment.

One of the factors that makes every life worth living is being present and engaged with the world around you and with the people who know you deeply. Patterns can evolve and circumstances may arise which limit our engagement. I believe that it is possible to rejuvenate any life, regardless of the challenges faced from the doctor's office to the corporate office and from middle school to middle age and beyond.

I am a Licensed Psychotherapist with 26 years clinical and 16 years of teaching experience. (Please see the SEMINAR page on my website). I blend new effective treatment techniques as well as traditional psychotherapeutic models. In many cases, I focus on solution-oriented, effective, symptom relief. Individuals are complex and psychological concerns cannot be separated from family dynamics, personal history, identity issues, work-related stress, and physical health. When necessary, and with client's permission, I collaborate with all healthcare professionals to create a 'think tank' approach to treatment.

You deserve happiness. It's what we're ultimately looking for when we make the decision to reach out for help. As a licensed psychotherapist and life coach, I've helped hundreds of people in the last 25 years and the one thing they all have in common is they simply want a more contented life. What that looks like is different for each person but I want you to know that a happier life is absolutely possible. Finding the right therapist or coach is key. I combine the research-proven methods of psychotherapy with the results-focused approach of life coaching to get you where you want to be.

Contentment and happiness can often feel elusive in the busy, complicated lives that we lead. Sometimes, understanding the reason for our unhappiness seems just as elusive. The way we feel about our true selves as well as the meaning we give certain events in our lives can effect how we cope with the challenges that come our way. Often, we find ourselves in situations that feel beyond our control to recover from. Deep down, you are resilient, and know life could feel better than it does.

What type of Deerfield mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Deerfield?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
