About

Bio

I have a blog that I like to use as a jump start for effective psychotherapy. If you might choose to consult with me - I'd like you to read my piece on 'Before we get started'. It's here: https://doctorweixel.wordpress.com/2015/03/31/before-we-get-started/ As for me - I have 30 Years Clinical experience. Originally from NYC. Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from University of Connecticut 1985. Research on Placebo Effects. Internship at Audie Murphy Veterans Administration Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Training in Pain Management Health Psychology. Now living in very rural MO with a few horses, a garden, some cats and a dog. I see clients at a Veterans Home and do psychological evaluations for prospective medical procedure candidates. I spent years as a single mom with an only child and with the good fortune of City Univ of NY, Grandma's babysitting and a Scholarship to Grad School, I put myself through to a Ph.D. My daughter's a health food sales rep, married and a wonderful mother of three sons - the oldest heading off to college. My partner and I ran a Tooling Design Mfg business that helped me ignore the devastating impact of the pharma-boom and managed care mania on psychotherapy. He and I are semi-retired and use our professional skills as we choose - our expertise is still in demand and it is up to us to decide how much to do. How nice is that! I have a special interest in Health Psychology and Mindful approaches to life.
