Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
Finding a good or even great psychotherapist is very difficult for everyone. It is distressing that when individuals finally make the decision to seek help, they are in no position to appreciate what they need. It remains, however old-fashioned that may appear, up to the treating doctor to listen intently, to formulate the core difficulties that cause paralysis and despair and to both talk about what is necessary for cure and demonstrate how that process can begin. I have trained in this field for over forty years. I teach at two renowned institutes in New York, NYPSI and IPE and I have a specific interest in dreams. These give the clearest and most refreshing view of an individual's conflicts and by their very nature are the most deeply personal and emotionally meaningful of any patient communication. It has been my good fortune, in concert with years of training, to have been able to help motivated individuals to achieve great happiness and personal satisfaction which had previously been, for them, unimaginable. Yes it takes time, yes it is not cheap, yes it transiently feels confusing and frustrating, but when someone finally feels fully him or herself, there is no pleasure in life more gratifying. Please allow me to help you on your journey to a life well lived.
