My Approach to Helping

Like it or Don't, - my style is a "unconventional". ...But if you're in a mess, and want to get out, - I can help. Hello, I'm Dr. Eliot P Kaplan . My specialties include: marriage counseling, family therapy, anger management, and kids looking for trouble. I am good at what I do, and enjoy my work. As the founder / author of ParadoxPsychology. com. my approach addresses the paradoxical dilemmas that people find themselves in; anger, communication infidelity, ingratitude. While we logically know that it is better to avoid conflict and stress, somehow we find ourselves stuck in situations we never imagined. When this happens, people lose perspective. It's my job is to help people sort things out and move forward. Therapy is short-term; This means that even after the first session you should feel "we made progress". I don't bite... - so please call for a Free Phone Consult to discuss your unique situation. Other areas addressed: Domestic Violence Prevention; Addictions; Compulsive Behaviors (OCD); and Pre-marital counseling.

More Info About My Practice

As a 'guy' therapist, I'm good at working with husbands / boyfriends who think "therapy is a waste of time!" I understand his concern and worry, and am able to turn our sessions into a positive experience. After our first session, your partner will realize that counseling is not about arguing over 'who's right or wrong', but rather finding solutions that benefit everyone. As he leaves, he may even recognize how counseling has just made his life a little easier!

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

In treatment the 'alliance' is everything!
If progress is going to happen, you should sense that not only do I understand what you are going through,
but I can enter your predicament and together we will 'fight off the dragons'.
It's really not as complicated as it sounds, but let's leave it for the initiated.
Please call for Free Phone Consult to see if my services are right for you.
