At a session, or through a series of sessions, you can expect to work to:
  • identify your emotions, i.e., how you are feeling and what you are experiencing those emotions about:
  • identifying the reasoning that leads you to feel this way, that is, the premises that you accept that result in your feelings;
  • evaluating your premises: false or unreasonable premises or assumptions are the root of many problems: they need to be identified and recognized as faulty:
  • find "antidotes" to these false or unreasonable premises, i.e., new, better patterns of reasoning with true, well-supported premises to better enable your happiness and flourishing;
  • exercises and activities to develop your willpower and insight, to help internalize your awareness that they are not true, are unproductive and should be rejected
Fees afterwards are based on a sliding scale, with $40 as a base fee for an approximately hour and 15 minute session, payable with cash, check or credit card via Paypal (to or Venmo. This includes an email follow up with a reflective summary of the session and suggestions for belief and feeling-changing exercises and activities. 

Skype (or similar) sessions are also available.
