R. TIMOTHY POLLAK, PH.D.
"When problems get in the way of your ability to enjoy life -- whether it's a relationship issue, a work-related conflict, or an addiction -- most people find they need a little help. No one should have to go through emotional pain alone. My goal is to help you understand the problem and develop the emotional tools you need to create healthier relationships and a healthier lifestyle as quickly as possible."
A SOLID EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND AND ADVANCED TRAINING
"Helping people through life's challenges requires not only sensitivity, but a clear understanding of the dynamics of interpersonal relationships. For me, a good formal education is essential to being a trusted and skilled therapist. A therapist's education is an ongoing process. The more I learn, the more effective I can be in reducing my client's discomfort and better assisting them in finding quick workable solutions to their problems."
MEETING HIGH STANDARDS IN HIS PROFESSION
"Acquiring the respect of my colleagues and my clients means I am proving my abilities time and time again. And my desire to grow both personally and professionally doesn't stop there. I believe that in order to be an effective therapist, one must continually improve one's skills and knowledge. Belonging to professional organizations stimulates me to do this."
HELPING YOU CONFRONT LIFE AS IT COMES
"I like to think of the help I give as 'intermittent brief therapy' Working together we can often quickly solve the problems that confront you today. And I'm also here as sort of a life mentor -- in other words, I'm here for you whenever a new problem or crisis arises."
