Announcement icon Office now open w/clear Covid safety protocols. Remote meeting remains an option for all patients via telephone or secure video link.
I have worked more than 30 years w individuals & families with serious psychological and relational problems including the mood, behavior and substance problems that tear families apart. I help individuals and families navigate the perilous course of finding solutions while we work to improve serenity and sanity for all. Individual work is relational w/psychodynamic and a Real World approach. I have developed the “Stress-Induced Impaired Coping" model for family system distress and recovery. See my 2019 book: “Freedom From Family Dysfunction: A Guide for Families Battling Addiction or Mental Illness.” Available on Amazon
Good therapy starts with the development of a working alliance based on dignity and trust. For individuals we begin with three 60 min assessment/planning meetings and then make a plan. For families, we start w/75 min getting to know you mtgs. Goal is to treat the system NOT a problem member. That makes everyone’a voice equally received and expressed.
Contact me and we’ll chat at no charge about your situation and make an initial plan. Sometimes one of the advanced clinicians I supervise make a good choice for a fit. Their fees are lower and they tend to be on the younger side though well trained and close to licensure themselves.
