Welcome - I have two distinct areas of specialization:
First, treating issues of PTSD, anxiety, depression and life dissatisfaction from a Depth Pscyhotherapy perspective. Depth Psychotherapy draws equally from the Psychology of the Unconscious (Jungian theory), 30 years of treating the effects of Trauma, Cognitive Restructuring (CBT), Imagery work, Voice Dialogue, Neuropsychology and Insight Meditation (Buddhist Vipassana.)
Second, I assess and treat Adult ADHD (or "ADD") from my own experience of having it and twenty years of treating it. I am fluent in ADDspeak! and have hit most of the potholes out there (and bounced back out)! My services include full diagnositic work-up, treatment or coaching for areas of difficulty, help with facilitating referrals for medication, interfacing with schools, employers, primary care doctors and family members.
My approach is collaborative, personal, grounded and humorous (hopefully). I don't use a lot of jargon or sit silently. I'm proactive and share what I believe works. As a person, I must say that I am constantly in awe of the resiliency of the human spirit and find that most people, with a helping hand, can overcome almost anything. This explains why I do what I do.
One recent client writes:
I know you know you’re an amazing therapist. But you met an unhappy woman and then wound up helping me salvage a self that seemed long gone. You introduced me to me. That’s a HUGE accomplishment, and few therapists would have been able to see me through to that point.
I am so utterly grateful. I left without even saying “thank you.” So, thank you. Seems insufficient, somehow. You should set out a tip jar.
You are a one-of-a-kind, complicated, funny, smarty-pants person and I am already missing the parts of my sessions when you told me about you. Ross, I wish you profound happiness, peace and all the love (or like?) you can stand.
I also have a service dog in my office who doubles as a relaxation trainer dog. His name is Finney and he was rescued from a slaughterhouse in China. (If you would like to know more about rescuing dogs in China watchhttp://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=rescuing+dogs+in+Changchun+China+Youtube&&view=detail&mid=5B951805FC35D58B01515B951805FC35D58B0151&rvsmid=2B932F3646BDEB01A3052B932F3646BDEB01A305&fsscr=0&FORM=VDQVAP).
Please note: I am not an in-network provider with Cigna , Aetna and United Healthcare, and their numerous sub-entities. They will reimburse me, but at the out-of-network rate. You should review your benefit and deductible for out-of-network services before contacting me.
