I do individual therapy for adults, adolescents and school age children. Hypnosis sessions to quit smoking are $150. Recording your session is encouraged.
I have practiced as a psychotherapist over 40 years, licensed in Missouri as a psychologist in 1981.
My therapy style is conversational, casual and interactive. Theoretically I identify with the Utilization concept, weaving elements of cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and ACT as befits the individual and issues. Every client deserves and receives services best suited to their interpersonal style and challenges. Utilization specifically identifies strengths and previous success to shape interventions for the challenges of today
Psychologists in Missouri do not prescribe medication. We sometimes evaluate for or suggest medications that are then prescribed by a psychiatrist (M.D. or D.O.) or another physician, such as a specialist or primary care doctor
