Office and Services About: Psychotherapy or Counseling, and Me Links
Psychotherapy and Counseling: I'd like to make some statement that is both profound and simplifying about the process but I can't. Each person, couple, or family is unique. Therefore the process can be difficult, joyous, painful, enlightening, frustrating, all of these, a combination of these or other things depending upon participants, issues, and history. There's no way to predict in advance. All a therapist or counselor can promise is that he or she will be honest, respectful, responsible, sensitive, caring, and know the latest research.
Me: I received my doctorate at the University of Chicago and interned at the University of Chicago Counseling and Psychotherapy Research Center. Over the next 35 years, I have been in a large number of varied settings including: University teaching, community psychology, and independent practice. Before moving to Bullhead City, I was Clinical Director for a clinic in bush Alaska that was the hub for 28 other villages.
