Marriage & Family Therapist , MFT

Having difficulty coping? Supportive, empathic insight-oriented therapy can help sort things out and effect change. Experienced, accepting, interactive therapist offers sliding scale rates for individuals and couples. Insurance accepted. Specialties: overcoming anxiety/panic, the coming out process, dealing with HIV/AIDS, help with self-defeating behavior patterns, relationship issues and sexuality (compulsive sex, dysfunctions/inhibitions). I believe successful therapy combines gaining insight into the origins of old patterns of thought and behavior that aren't working for you and attempting to make changes in those patterns, so that what has not worked can begin to work again.
The changes involve 3 essential components: 1/ insight and understanding; 2/ accessing and being able to feel often difficult, even painful, feelings associated with those insights; 3/ starting to take risks in changing behavior patterns that are self-defeating.
One way of viewing this process is learning to separate the past from the present, and knowing that the past doesn't have to determine the present. One of my specialties is anxiety disorders: generalized anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias. Learn more about my practice: Michael@MichaelWallintherapy.com.
