Anxiety/Depression: Many of my patients have similar problems at home and at work: STRESS: "Why do I feel angry or frustrated all the time? Why did I over-react or feel uncomfortable when he/she said that? What's going on here? Why am I being treated this way? Did I do something to encourage this treatment? Even at work I have conflict. I need to stand up for myself but how and what to say? I don't want to be written up by H. R. I can't seem to keep a healthy relationship going. I don't understand myself and why I keep repeating the same mistakes! I have a relationship, a career... I'm not satisfied. Is this it? REALLY?"

I provide an opportunity for people to freely express their feelings and thoughts to achieve the changes they desire. I work interactively with clients so they may develop their strengths and achieve their goals. Assisting individuals in becoming at ease with their feelings, however difficult they may be, is an important aspect of the work I do. Feelings can become useful tools for living rather than disturbing impediments. The ubiquitous problems of uncomfortable feelings, harmful behaviors, and the challenges of relationships, careers and parenting are common areas of focus.

People most often contact me when a critical life event has occurred. They may be feeling anxious or depressed, or have become newly aware of a need to make changes in the way they handle their relationships, emotions, and self-esteem. For some, this is the beginning of a long journey of self-exploration. Others prefer to seek new, more effective tools to address the immediate situation. I think that a good clinician should be able to tailor the treatment to fit the needs and preferences of the client. Too often it is the other way around.

Anxiety and depression over this worldwide crisis is completely understandable. Teletherapy allows your sessions to be safe in the comfort of your home. On your initial visit, I will spend a generous amount of time with you on your presenting concerns and your goals for therapy. Having 15 years of experience, I can assess the therapy method most likely to be effective for your specific situation. My specialty is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and I find most clients achieve significant progress with this approach. ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) is a type of "third wave" CBT and is often incorporated.

My diverse practice reflects and serves the needs of my neighborhood. My style of practice is interpersonal/humanistic meaning that I try to take an open minded approach to psychotherapy. The work is an exploration of the nature of relationships and sources of anxiety leading to an understanding of moment-to-moment experience of self and others. This understanding may lead to meaningful change and to the emergence of choices which were not previously considered. I am respectful of individual needs and differences and consider social & cultural influences. Email is best: drscurtis@gmail.com.

Whether the collapse is "out there" or "in here," it often seems the world is collapsing. Many of us seek therapy because the sense of losing our mind, our self, our loved ones, or our livelihood is terrifying, and the real threats of catastrophe are debilitating. Knowing what we want becomes increasingly difficult, and we struggle to take shape and hold on to ourselves in the presence of others. We fold up or fold in to protect ourselves and our relationships, but then aloneness, desperation, panic, and self attack set in.
