Fisher Therapy Services
I provide counseling services for a wide variety of disorders with specific focus on communication, addiction and codependence issues for adolescents, adults, couples and families. I work from a spiritual perspective, with a focus on mindfulness. Prior to becoming a licensed therapist over 12 years ago, I worked in the corporate world of Silicon Valley as a software executive. Consequently, I can relate to those patients’ issues that can be traced to the pressures of work in today’s fast-paced business environment.
A major fraction of my practice consists of couples counseling. I have found that many of the problems these couples experience are due to the fact they have stopped listening to each other. There is nothing more gratifying than experiiencing the reunion that happens when these problems are recognized and corrected.
