About this pro

Practicing since 1997, I've been fortunate to treat a wide range of clinical issues and disorders over the course of several decades. Simply put, I believe everyone has a story to tell, and no two stories are alike. Clients and colleagues have observed that I possess a down-to-earth, warm, friendly therapeutic style; a fierce belief in the possibility of change; and an emphasis on treatment collaboration.

Making a positive impact on the lives with whom I work. I enjoy the process of learning about a persons background and history, and how their life history can be used to inform and help improve their present situation and future events.

  • Mark B.

    He is very dynamic and offers great insight to our relationship. Like the fact that he is direct and not just playing referee.

  • Melinda B.

    Incredibly quick response. Very professional. When I mentioned I could not afford his rate, he offered me a 10% reduced rate. Class act all the way.

  • Gael G.

    Dr. Wetter is the best. Loved that I could have my appointment with him late at night over the computer- so convenient! He’s the best therapist. Worth it.

  • Jennifer J.

    Excellent psychologist. Continue to work with him. Didn’t just listen to me but actually talked with me. Really felt understood by him. His suggestions and feedback are right on the mark.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

There are many mental health professionals in the community. The most important factors I recommend you consider when choosing to work with a professional would be the following:

1) Make sure their academic and training credentials are from well established univieristies. 

2) Make sure they have sufficient experience in treating the issues that are pertinent to you. 

3) Make sure they are responsive to you (eg, how long does it take for them to get back to you). 

4) And most importantly, make sure you feel comfortable working with him/her.
