Ask a Psychologist
As a psychologist, I get asked tons of questions by clients, friends, and family. I’ve created this section of my website as a place to address questions I hear frequently with the hope the answers will be helpful to others. Do you have a question you’ve always wanted to ask? If so, please email me. Chances are other people may have the same question. I will post a new question and answer every few weeks, so please check back.
