Turning Point Psychotherapy


Have you been struggling with something you just can’t seem to get past? With the depth and brevity of Turning Point Psychotherapy, you can take a turn for the better, and stay better.  My passion is to help you reach that turning point.

When a game-changing moment presents itself, one thing is for sure: those who take advantage of it dive right in and participate. They are the ones who most likely benefit.

Turning Point Psychotherapy specializes in therapy that is depth-oriented and relatively brief for specific outcomes.

Whether you want to overcome anxiety or depression, transform a difficult relationship or cope with a difficult life transition, you can get the help you need.

Pure Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and Coherence Therapy are just few examples of the transformative modalities Turning Point Psychotherapy is built on.

These forms of therapy are a synergistic blend of counteractive and transformative approaches.

By counteractive I mean the way therapy can help you build coping mechanisms and make changes in thinking  to counteract, bypass or get around the problem.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an example of a very effective and evidence based  counteractive approach. At the neurological level of impact, CBT will help to reroute the neural pathways involved in the thoughts/feelings/behaviors  relating to the problem you would like to resolve.

EMDR and Coherence Therapy are examples of transformative modalities. They help to access unconscious emotional positions  encoded at the synaptic level of the brain so that the “emotional charge” that cements unwanted patterns solidly in place can be “unlocked” and literally dissolved through a process known as memory reconsolidation.

Since 2002,  I’ve built Turning Point Psychotherapy on integrating these primary modalities as a way to bridge the conscious and unconscious mind.   As you’ll see from the testimonials, the results speak for the themselves.

If you are going through a difficult time and would like a unique experience of personal transformation and therapeutic growth, please don’t wait another minute. Turning Point Psychotherapy can help!

I offer a free 15 minute consultation. Call now or email me to see how effective Turning Point Psychotherapy can be.

 Over the past 15 years I’ve helped thousands of clients reach their turning points. Please don’t wait another minute.  I’d like to help.”

Phone Therapy!

Both research and professional experience confirm what many are surprised to find: using the phone for psychotherapy gets two thumbs up. In the early years of Turning Point Psychotherapy, I balked at working over the phone.  But the ease and convenience have created a  demand for  phone therapy.  It turns out that phone therapy can…

Minimizing Addictive Patterns

I’m mindful of the fact that people need to make sense out of their experiences.   They often rely on patterns of communication which are irrational, and which they keep using even in the face of contradictory evidence. When we keep doing what we’ve been doing we’re going to keep getting what we’ve been getting.…
