... and thank you for visiting indepthpsychotherapy.com.  I have tried to organize this site to provide you with information about my practice, education, background and policies to help you make an informed decision.  Finding the right psychotherapist is an important decision and I encourage everyone to "shop around" to find the right person to help.  This means not only comparing fees, policies, and educational backgrounds, but also meeting for an initial consultation to get a first-hand impression of how I or any other therapist, work in "real life" beyond how we might describe what we do on a website.  So, if after reviewing this website  you think I may be the right person to help you, I would encourage  you to accept my offer for an initial free consultation (1-3 sessions).   


Our initial consultation session(s) will involve an evaluation of you and your needs.  By the end of the evaluation, I will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work will include should you decided to continue in therapy with me and we will decide on a fee.  Therapy involves a large commitment of time, money and energy, so I encourage you to evaluate this information along with your own experience of whether you feel comfortable working with me.  If you have questions about my procedures, I want you to feel comfortable enough and know that I encourage you to discuss them with me whenever they arise.  Often times these questions and mixed feelings may be related to the progress we are making, so addressing them can only facilitate your treatment.


Whether you are currently experiencing acute problems, such as anxiety, depression,  and/or loneliness, or feel worn out by problems that have been hampering you for a long time, like relationship issues, recovery, emptiness, meaninglessness or trauma,  I may be able to help you...
