Private Client Sessions
Individual client sessions are available by telephone or in person at my downtown Palo Alto office. My therapeutic orientation is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy — a mindfulness based approach that aims at living one’s life to the fullest. I believe that the therapeutic agent of change is psychological contact, i.e., a genuine sense of connectedness between the therapist and client. Or, as Marion Woodman puts it, ‘What analysis is all about is for one hour a week, you sit and hope that for a flash of a moment you will experience connectedness.’ (I aim for more than a flash of a moment, though it’s a good starting point.) For new clients, please contact Nelly Cotto (650-492-3702 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
