Dr. Lynn E. O'Connor Practice Description
I will see you for 50 minutes each session, during which time we talk. From my perspective, good therapy is often like a really good conversation out of which you will leave feeling better, stronger, and more able to cope with life situations. I support other kinds of help you might want to use, including psychopharmacological treatments, self-help group therapies, specific behavioral therapies, contemplative practices such as meditation and involvement in spiritual programs.
