    My Approach to Helping

    I am a contemporary gestalt therapist. This means my approach focuses on the current concerns of my patients as they are experienced in their daily lives and that are experienced in the therapy sessions. Our attention is on the here-and-now. The therapy relationship is core to our work. Therapy is a collaborative process. I am an active participant in the sessions — respectful, welcoming, and offering creative suggestions to help my patients experience understanding and consequently achieve insight into the concerns that brought them to see me.

    My work’s orientation is phenomenological and existential. This means that we pay especial attention to current experience and the meaning of persons’ lives as it is relevant to our work.

    My overall attitude is one of welcoming acceptance mixed with my concrete presence. I engage with both my intelligence and empathy. I see therapeutic work as releasing a person’s implicit creativity, which then dissolves fixed dysfunctional patterns.

    More Info About My Practice

    I teach, train, and supervise psychotherapists internationally. I am on the faculty of psychotherapy institutes in the United States and Europe. I’ve presented at conferences in 8 countries. My writings have been translated into many languages. I edit journals and books. All of this is in the field of clinical practice. My Linkedin profile describes this in detail.
    I was an attorney before I became a psychotherapist.

    My fee range is commensurate with my years of practice, clinical knowledge, competence, and reputation. My fee range is $180 to $300, depending on different factors that I and my prospective patient discuss in our consultation. I am an out-of-network insurance provider, which means benefits are paid to my patients by their insurance company based upon the terms of their coverage when they submit my paid bill to them.

    Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

    I welcome a person into my office, not a diagnosis, not a biological system. It is a person with whom I engage in a healing relationship. Psychology has many ways to try to understand clinical suffering from scientific perspectives. Discoveries in neuroscience and continuing useful clinical treatment methods or psychodynamic hypotheses shape our clinical approaches. These are useful ways for us psychotherapists to organize our treatment to match the particular forms of emotional distress of our patients. A famous neuroscientist recently remarked that neurons do not think or feel. A person suffers, not a nervous system and certainly not some abstraction used by clinicians. And surely, a diagnosis feels no pain.
    But what we have found to be at the heart of psychotherapeutic effectiveness are those healing moments of novelty, of personal insight, within a person’s experience of the therapy experience.
