Dr. Wilkinson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wilkinson "I have been told I am a natural at cutting through the distractions and details and getting to a core understanding of complex problems and their solutions. Patients tell me I am soft-spoken and kind, yet always direct and to the point. I take great pride in being able to help my patients view their problems from a different perspective. i have also often been told that I am adept at taking a very complex set of dynamics or principles and simplifying them in a way that is useful and manageable. Often, this change in perspective, coupled with simplicity, allows for the creation of innovative, highly personalized solutions. I also offer a COMFORT DOG in session for those who might find it soothing to have a sweet, lovable dog by their side that they may also pet and in so doing comfort themselves. His name is COMET. He is a Portuguese Water Dog. This breed does not shed and is hypo-allergenic. Comet has his own room apart from the therapy office where he gladly hangs-out when someone prefers sessions sans his presence. Research, along with comments from my own patients, suggests that Comfort Dogs facilitate greater comfort and openess, and thereby more productive therapy sessions. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wilkinson "I believe that patients have tried all they know to solve their own problems before they reach out for help.  My job is to help them develop new ways of viewing their problems.   This in turn opens up possibilities for new solutions.  I view my patients as collaborators.  We are a team working together to increase their productivity and satisfaction in their lives and relationships.  I also believe people make bad decisions for good reasons.  This is central to my belief that most people intend to do good, but may need help in finding ways to actually accomplish it.  Someone may have learned in their developmental years that it was wrong to ask for more than what you were given.  Asking for more was taken to mean that you didn't appreciate what you had.  So, this person gives others what they want secretly and maybe even unconsciously hoping the receiver will reciprocate.  This rarely if ever actually works, but is a good example of doing something that does not work for a good reason."

Dr. Ron is the best. I have seen him for years and I am quite sure that he has made my life much better. He is a great listener and he points out things that I already know, but is not judgemental and enables one to see how one can heal himself.

Kind, compassionate, attentive person and therapist. Gently guides but does not dictate absolute ideas. Helps one to uncover issues and solutions without making blanket statements.
