OVERVIEW OF dR. gEISER'S PRACTICE
I am a clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist. However, I currently devote nearly all of my time to psychotherapy, having retired from providing neuropsychological evaluations. During my career, the combination of neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy practice has given me a deeper, broader view of the nature of my clients' difficulties and the factors that contribute to their distress. While I have specialized in treating adults with chronic medical conditions, such as strokes, chronic diseases, and chronic pain, I also help people deal with depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, insomnia, relationship stress, grief, and other difficult life circumstances.
As a psychotherapist, my orientation is primarily behavioral and solution-focused. If you work with me, we will seek to understand the behavior and thinking patterns that may keep you stuck or interfere with your experiencing a contented and meaningful life. I often recommend targeted, practical behavioral changes to help you resolve difficulties you encounter in particular situations and with particular individuals in your life. While my treatment style is active and often directive, I respect your autonomy and will never insist on you doing what you are unwilling to do. I believe listening to you non-judgmentally has the greatest therapeutic value and helps me to form an accurate, unbiased understanding of who you are. Ultimately, my goal is to empower you to achieve your goals and help you pursue a life that corresponds to your deepest values and interests.
