Dr. Jeffrey A. Botman
I am a licensed psychologist with over 30 years of clinical experience. I hold a PhD from the Unviersity of North Carolina , Chapel Hill.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
Are you in emotional pain? Questioning how much a therapist can help? Doubtful that talking about fears and failures can resolve them? If so, you are the client I want. I'll help you learn, grow, and solve problems -- big and small. Those problems may include: self-defeating habits, hurtful relationship patterns, overwhelming anxiety, or debilitating depression. Want a safe place where you are appreciated and your experience is validated? I do provide it. Need interpersonal understanding and wise guidance? I offer that, too. Want to mobilize inner resources? With my help, you will. You've suffered enough. Contact me.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Milton Erickson is the psychiatrist, who revolutionized approaches to both psychotherapy and hypnosis. I practice in his tradition. That means: I don't just listen. I also reframe problems you think unsolvable, change perspectives that stymie you, awaken your dormant strengths, and teach lessons and skills you're missing. Call.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I specialize in helping clients who have been previously disappointed in therapy.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I most enjoy treating people who bring hard and/or chronic problems to therapy.
