My Approach to Helping

I have been a Dr. of psychology and psychotherapist all my adult life (35+ years) and that is the basis upon which I offer these services to you. I am also the co-founder of Footprint New Jersey LLC counseling center in Jersey City (www.footprintnj.com)
We are living in the age of anxiety. We experience joy and creativity one day and next confusion, despair, and self-defeat chasing fun, escaping, avoiding, procrastinating, feeling stuck and blocked. When the balance is upset, resulting in unhappiness and experiencing strong inner tension and conflict, confusion and doubts--I can help.
When we experience issues with feelings of love, anxiety, hope, and despair in relationships--that is when I can help.
Love need not be replaced by undiscerning sex or dropped out altogether. Despair need not turn into depression. Hope need not turn into an immature illusion and anxiety into stress. Pain need not turn into suffering, mere survival and permanent wound but showing the way to growth and a fulfilled life.
I believe our nature is essentially rich, resourceful, and creative. I will support you to set free your natural innate capacity, and locked up energies, for healing and progressing. I believe that my understanding of you will add and complement your self-knowledge contributing together to improve your relationship with others and with yourself. I view the past as essential for understanding the here and now, overcoming barriers and actualizing our potentials at the present, living with purpose and meaning.
My approach is based on a positive, direct and not pathology oriented interaction with you. In my experience, as described above, only a small proportion of persons with psychopathological symptoms come to therapy. I work with people, not patients. I rely on many years of accumulated learning, professionally and personally, providing me with deep respect and insights for a person. Both the above living experience and a large knowledge base nourish my skills as a therapist.
As a writer (professional psychotherapy book and articles) and a fine arts artist, I appreciate art, religion, and any other human activity in which we transcend our environment and our quality of life. While creativity eases the pains of existence and aids in adapting to life in a variety of ways, no less it also contributes to external and internal stresses and specific needs. I have worked with many creative professionals.
