Personal Statement

People often seek counseling or psychotherapy to change and to resolve difficulties or problems. Seeking consultation is very personal and it takes some courage to initiate contact. Sometimes the impetus comes from within; sometimes your circumstances or others close to you provide a nudge. Finding the 'right' therapist for you may take some exploration. Some people simply seek to talk privately about a subject or an issue. This may involve one's direction in life, career, management role, or decision-making. Some people seek to address deeply personal thoughts, emotions, behaviors, relationships, spirituality, or other concerns.

Intervention may be brief and problem or symptom focused, or more analytical and oriented to insight and personal transformation. Dr Zuessman provides counseling and psychotherapy to adults, adolescents, couples and families, commonly for:

Life Transitions around Adolescence Mid-life & Seniority ;
