The right match between the individual and their psychologist is one of the most important elements to a successful therapy experience. One' s willingness to stop and to examine thoughts, feelings, and behaviors from a different point of view is also essential for change.
Hundreds of studies have found that psychotherapy helps people make positive changes in their lives. Reviews of these studies show that about 75 percent of people who enter psychotherapy show some benefit. Other reviews have found that the average person who engages in psychotherapy is better off by the end of treatment than 80 percent of those who don’t receive treatment at all.
I am a highly trained psychologist with expertise in the areas of human behavior, mental health assessment, diagnosis and treatment, and behavior change.
