Meet Joel Meyer
Finding a good therapist is not always easy. You want a therapist that takes you and your challenges seriously. Joel has been trained in numerous psychological approaches (cognitive behavioral therapy, humanistic psychotherapy, existential psychotherapy, self-psychology, solution-focused therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, reality therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy), so that he can tailor his method that best fits you and the challenges you face, not just a prescripted list of solutions. In other words, Joel commits himself to partnering with you to helping you overcome obstacles, resolving your struggles, and helping you find contentment in your life. His clients are not just case numbers, he believes that you are the most important person in the room.
So many people live their lives in pain, which is not necessary. Joel helps his clients not only “not feel bad,” but learn how to feel good. So many people face serious problems, and those folks need serious people to help solve them. Everyone experiences challenges in life, both current and past. But, we may not always be prepared to handle those challenges that occur. Joel believes in a person’s natural ability to overcome and change using strengths. Joel has gained a reputation for providing effective treatment to people who have difficult problems. He specializes in multiple and complicated problems and issues, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, problems related to identity, meaning in life, to marital and family problems.
