Physcotheraphy

There is no way to fix what is bothering you without first looking carefully at what is not working well and how it happened.  

Together we will explore the angles, gather information, and work as a team to find a solution. I will tell you the truth about what is going on. I will help you move away from what is wearing you down and toward a pattern of behaviors that will create a more satisfying and fulfilling life. 

Part of psychological treatment is a careful diagnosis. If necessary, we might use various psychological assessments to help clarify a diagnosis and aid in creating a treatment plan. Very often I work with your medical doctor to make sure you are receiving appropriate and adequate care.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness training provides tools for you to become aware of your needs. I can work with you to negotiate the twists and turns of life, help you meet the demands of the day, and learn to feel more confident. Mastering the skill of stopping the noise and really listening to your True Self can provide you with the information you need to find your path. 

Many people seek my services to help understand what their next step in life will be. I can help you in finding your passion and teach you how to feel more confident and sure of yourself. Please be aware that this type of work is not usually medically necessary, and will most likely not be covered by insurance.


Cognitive and Personality Assessment.

One of the most important services I provide is the psychological and neuropsychological assessment of a person.  Psychologists are specifically trained to administer and interpret psychometic instruments (tests) that are designed to look at the psychological foundations of a person. Many instruments also help us understand how a brain is functioning. This is especially helpful after significant illness and following any type of head trauma. Working with you and your treating physician, we can paint a picture of who are and why you do what you do. 

The art of diagnosis for psychological conditions is not yet as clear cut and reliable as it is for other medical problems. Similarly, many medical conditions have significant impact on mental health. The best tactic is to look at the whole person from several angles in order to best understand and appreciate how all the pieces fit together. The brain is part of the whole body.

Please note that I will do assessment services as part of my psychotherapy treatment only. I am not equipped to answer any legal or forensic questions, and will not provide test results as proof of diagnosis to anyone other than your treating physician.

Not all questions are easily answered, and not all answers are easily understood.


Teletherapy

Teletherapy refers to a therapy session online via videoconference technology. We use a video interface, me in my office and you at home. The program, Doxy.me, is HIPAA secure and safe. It is important for you to use your own equipment to communicate, and specifically not use your employer’s computer or network.

Risks, Benefits, and Alternatives
Such video interaction carries the possibility of interception, corruption, or misdirection. The benefits of teletherapy include having access to psychotherapy services without having to travel. This can be very useful if you are injured or ill, if you live too far away, or have transportation troubles. Not being in the same room with you limits my ability to be of help in those rare cases. The alternative to teletherapy consultation is a face-to-face visit in my office.

 Medical Information and Records
All laws concerning patient access to medical records and copies of medical records apply to teletherapy. Sharing of any patient data shall not occur without your consent.

Your Rights
You may withhold or withdraw your consent to a teletherapy session at any time before and/or during the session without affecting your right to future care or treatment, or risking the loss or withdrawal of any benefits to which you would otherwise be entitled.
