Private practice

Private Practice

Although my pre- retirement work at the hospital was with severely disordered, typically suicidal, repeatedly hospitalized patients, my private practice in IRT accepts anyone who is not insurance dependent. Many are highly functioning, well-accomplished people who are skilled in the use of logic, are not considered “personality disordered,” but suffer privately from persistent unwanted feelings of anger, anxiety and or depression including suicidality.

One need not be severely disturbed to enjoy the benefits of IRT. It also is effective with almost anyone who struggles with “irrational” and persistent anger, anxiety or depression (or its inverse, mania). If you are interested, please go to the Contact section and leave a note.  Thanks!

    I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Minnesota. I have a client who is extremely interested in participating in therapy utilizing the SASB and the IRT approach to therapy. I am not trained or qualified to provide this service for my client, nor am I aware of any other providers in our area that have this training. Can you please explain what your private practice options entail? Would there be an opportunity for my client to work with you? If not, do you have a network of clinicians who are trained in IRT in the state of MN, preferrably northeastern MN? Thank you!

    Dear Jodi Anderson

    Thank you for your inquiry. Although i do know some good Psychiatrists who are familir with iRT in Madison, WI, i dont know of any IRT clinicians in MN. After my new book with APA comes out in 2015, perhaps increased interest will support setting up a training clinic for professionals here in Salt Lake, A supplemental incentive for attending might be the wonderful mountains that offer great family activities in winter and summer.

    Meanwhile, the only thing i can offer you is consultation about your patient on secure video.I dont accept patients for psychotherapy by video..

    Best Wishes,
