This is a letter to you. Going for psychotherapy is one of the greatest benefits someone can do for themselves. Don't give up. The help you need is here. Maybe you will call me or maybe you will call another therapist. Either way, I hope you make the call. I know it's hard to to finally come to the decision to seek treatment. It's hard just to know who to select from this website. In this line of work, I would advise you to go with an experienced therapist and go with your gut. Either way, brave on through. I hope you make that call. Therapy works.

You don't have to be depressed or anxious or stuck any longer. How people see themselves fluctuates, not just because of present day-to-day issues but also from your past. Your internal feelings go up and down. They can range from grandiosity and entitlement to self-deprecation and loneliness. There are reasons why someone's self-esteem, self-worth and sense of self is in flux. It's an internal problem, stemming from the the beginning. Therapy is designed to resolve internal problems. Nothing else can. There is no external solution, for an internal problem. If you are struggling emotionally, or your spouse is lost, or your children feel alienated, it doesn't have to be that way. You and/or your family can feel much better.

It is not always easy being the spouse, the parent, the worker, the "strong one" or the child or the sibling. Roles test us. Many feel like they are on automatic pilot. Their joy is gone. We scramble to look for something to make us feel better, but it is short-lived. Therapy will make a world of difference permanently, for you and for those you love and it will cross-over to your friends and with those you work with. If you are hurting, reach out to the therapy process and work with someone who has been there, who understands people and knows how to help.

Good luck.

More Info About My Practice

I had my own personal psychoanalysis. It made a world of difference for me. I have studied doing psychotherapy long and hard and continue to study and read. I love psychotherapy and I love doing it. I know what it took to help me and I know what it takes to help others.

Now the bad news, you have to work at therapy, even when you don't want to. You have to come, you have to talk and unfortunately, you have to pay. You will have to overcome your resistance to change and increase your awareness. It takes real effort and grit. But I guarantee you, if you come to see me, I will work non-stop for you. Please know, this is not a class. It's a treatment, a procedure, a method, that works. It's a professional relationship, that will for always be of significant help to you and your loved ones.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I have two reasons why I love doing psychotherapy. One is an altruistic reason and the other is selfish. I love seeing people getting better. I love providing something that is of value that lasts a life time and can improve other lives because of one person's change. The selfish reason is, I feel good doing psychotherapy because it is the one thing I truly excel at. I am a one-trick-pony. I'm not an athlete or some brilliant scholar, But therapy I can do well.

In addition to doing long-term psychotherapy with adults, I've developed four specialties. I do evaluations and treatment for those struggling with Asperger's Syndrome. I also run an Asperger Group. Secondly, I have devise a pre-marital evaluation format to help newly established couples. Thirdly, I work with couples. Fourth, I do psychotherapy and evaluations with children, of all ages.

What Makes up a Problem?

What makes a problem? Let's say this. "If it's not one thing, it's a "MOTHER"; then you have to look a little "FATHER", but in the end, it's spilled milk. The world says, "You can't cry over spilled milk", but therapy says you have to. I am not bashing parents. Parents do the best they are capable of. Many times, they are so much better than their parents were. Nonetheless, the quality of your first relationship is imprinted on your psyche, the good, the bad and the ugly. What exacerbates the problem, is one's denial, fear and resistance. Therapy helps you be one with youir family but also to individuate in healthy ways.
