The origin of the word patient literally means “one who suffers.” You are probably reading this in search of someone who can help you alleviate your suffering. The single most important factor known to help patients get better is whether they believe that their psychotherapist listens to and cares about them.
My office is located near historic downtown Stillwater at 275 Third Street South, Suite 204. The building is handicap accessible, with a parking lot on the north side of the building.
I received my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology in 1987 and became a licensed psychologist in 1992. I initially worked in a hospital psychiatric setting for about 8 years, starting in 1983. I spent the subsequent 26 years working with men who were either on probation or incarcerated. I believed it was important to offer them hope that their lives could improve. I retired from that career in 2016 and opened a private practice.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
