Dr. Compton's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Compton "I was very fortunate to have my first psychotherapy experiences, both individual and in groups, when I was in college. That experience ultimately led me to seek out the enlightenment superhighway that is group psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. By far the greatest investment I have made in my life was in my own personal analysis and group therapy experience. Those practices opened doors in my heart and my mind that I did not know existed. And since then I have discovered a new world of joy and passion. I learned how to sit with powerful emotions, both mine and others', and that skill has deepened and strengthened my relationships. I have come to the understanding that it is our relationships that bring the greatest meaning and fulfillment to our lives. I can imagine you, the reader, saying, "Yes, we have all heard how important relationships are to our health and so on. But, so what, we all have relationships. What am I supposed to do with that information?" My answer is that not all relationships are equal, and the ways that we handle our relationships, the way we communicate, our expectations and many other factors make the difference between a healthy, happy relationship and a frustrating and unsatisfying one. And when our relationships are passionate and joyful, our lives become rich and long."
This content was provided by Dr. Compton "Are you looking for a psychiatrist who is a compassionate, nonjudgmental person who will listen deeply, and help you to live and love fully and authentically? Do you want psychotherapy for anxiety, depression or low self esteem? Would you like counseling for relationship problems or just want your relationships to be more alive and joyful?
Are you searching for meaning in your life, for fulfillment, joy and bliss? These are all humanly possible to achieve with the right kind of therapy and the desire for change.
If you think you may need medication I can prescribe for you if you are seeing me for individual or group therapy.
Call me (there is no charge for the phone call) and we can talk about the next step for you."
