Dr. Fost's Care Philosophy

The ancient rationale for psychotherapy in three quotations: 1) ''He who cannot describe the problem will never find the solution to the problem'' - Confucious (551-479 BCE); 2) ''The unexamined life is not livable for a human being'' (paraphrased as, ''The unexamined life is not worth living'') - Socrates, in Plato's ''Apology'' (ca 360 BCE); 3) ''Whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.'' - Patrick Henry (1739-1799)

I have been seeing Dr. Fost for a little over a year. He has helped me greatly. I have seen other providers in the past but never felt like I was getting anywhere. With Dr. Fost, I see significant changes in myself, my life, and my overall wellbeing. Dr. Fost does not fix your problems for you; he challenges you to find your own answers and guides you along the way. You must put in effort yourself. I will continue to see Dr. Fost as long as he remains in practice. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Fost has helped me and my son get through an ugly divorce. I appreciate all he has done for us. My son and I have both come out the other side of this divorce being whole again and happy in our lives. Thank you

Dr. Fost is very personable, caring and insightful. He is my son's therapist and has built up quite a rapport with him. This is important when dealing with a teenager. My son has confidence in him and will discuss his feelings with Dr. Fost in a way that he will not with his father or me. That is what you want when you child sees a therapist. We are pleased with the progress our son is making since seeing Dr. Fost
