The Body as a Resource in Online Therapy (Part 1)

I've spoken to a number of people about the body awareness training I've received in body-oriented approaches to emotional wellbeing. One thing I've noticed is that people are often interested in the idea, but they sometimes get confused about what kinds of specific body-oriented strategies we might employ in a typical online therapy session for body awareness. In the past, I have often had a...

Resolving Conflict in Marriage

(You should know at the onset that this is a completely fictionalize story of an actual case. This article represents an abridgment of my early impressions of this case. This will be the first in short series of articles addressing this issue)

"Our marriage is on the rocks.” What a way to begin a conversation! They went on to say, "Please help us resolve the conflicts in our marriage.” I have...

Pride is Destroying Our Marriage

I can still hear the tear-filled words on the other end of the phone, "Pride is Destroying our Marriage!" I can't take it anymore!

When I heard this, I thought of the words of Solomon, the King of Israel: "Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18 (NKJV)

Country music legend, Roger Miller even sung about it, "Pride is the chief cause and the decline the...

Benefits of Online Therapy

A while back there was a very funny television show starring Lisa Kudrow (ditzy Phoebe from Friends) calledœWeb Therapy. It was an improvised show and Lisa played a therapist who treated her patients over the Internet. Hence the title of the show.

Well, back when the show was on, the idea of treating mental health patients via a webcam seemed ludicrous. And the show did a great job at poking...

Mental Health Myths

Its ironic, but perhaps the most misunderstood component of our health is that of the mind. There are so many myths about mental health that I don't even pretend to cover all of them, but rather, I've made a list of some of the most common and most dangerous that I have come across in my experience:

Myth #1: Mental health services are for people with mental illness.

An Online Therapist's 20-Year Voyage through Cyberspace

FREE SEX THERAPY!

That was how my psychotherapy practice was listed on America Online or AOL if you were on the 'Information Superhighway' back in 1995 searching for "Therapy in Los Angeles."

Thus began my trip through Cyberspace 20 years ago.

While designing, learning HTML code, and building my first website, I thought FREE EMAIL ADVICE was a good way to get my name out on the World Wide...
