Personalized Counseling and Psychotherapy by Edward Novak

Choosing a therapist to trust with your problems and emotional suffering can be difficult and confusing.  This is because there are many different treatment theories and approaches.  While some theories focus on problem solving and symptom relief, others explore the sources of your problems and symptoms.  Some theories focus on thinking, feeling, or behavior, and others on all three.  Many theories ignore possible neurological influences while others focus primarily on neurology or biology.

I am trained and experienced in many types of therapy and I am not limited to only a few treatment approaches.  This means, I can personalize your treatment and work directly on your specific problems and needs.

When I began my training in 1992, I committed myself to studying and working in a wide range of psychological theories and techniques.  I spend thousands of dollars every year in workshops and training with leading thinkers and researchers in the field as described in my education and training history.  These theories and techniques are state of the art in the mental health profession.

Your personal problems and suffering deserve personalized, state of the art therapy that incorporates multiple theories and psychological perspectives into the treatment.  This is the type of therapy I provide to my clients.

Any quality psychotherapeutic experience is a commitment of your time, money and effort.  Your thinking about beginning therapy probably means your problems are having an impact on you and your life in ways you want to understand and change.  You need to believe that psychotherapy can help

To give you information about me and about my ways of working I have created this web site.  My site provides information about me, and the services I provide:  brief counseling, psychotherapy, trauma therapy (e.g., physical, sexual, emotional abuse, and other horrific experiences; including war). There are suggested readings, links to other helpful sites and more.

However, nothing can substitute for face to face contact.  That is why I offer a FREE FIRST SESSION AND CONSULTATION.  This session is designed as a time for us to ask questions of one another to begin to see if there is a “therapeutic fit.”

You and your issues will be taken seriously and your commitment of your time, effort and money respected.  

As you review the information on my web site, think about what it is you would like to get from therapy and what your expectations will be of yourself and your therapist.  These are the types of things you will want to talk to me about in your consultation.  In fact, these are the questions I will also talk about in our first session.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my web site,
