I believe that psychotherapy is a collaborative process in which I work with clients to help them better understand themselves and others as they work to achieve their goals. By becoming more aware of our thoughts, feelings and actions, we can all become more compassionate towards ourselves, as well as gain greater control of ourselves and our lives. Reaching out for help is a sign of strength.

Our Opioid Crisis – We’re All At Risk

Oct 30, 2017 by Arlene B. Englander

I’m quite concerned about the huge and growing opioid crisis America’s now facing.  Opioids kill more people in our country than car accidents or guns and the CDC states that opiate addiction now costs America $78.5 billion each year.

These stats are alarming and the prevalence of these pain-killers, often prescribed prophylactically rather than in response to actual pain, poses a huge problem - one that needs to be curtailed before the crisis can be controlled. Most of the physicians involved are probably well intentioned, even protective, as were my parents. But the end result, tragically, is often addiction, and eventually even death.

Passing for Thin: Losing Half My Weight and Finding Myself

Oct 02, 2017 by Arlene B. Englander

A Truly Memorable Memoir. In this beautifully written, touching memoir, Frances Kuffel brings us along on a  journey in which she loses weight – 170 pounds or so all told – and seeks to find her true identity.  What a challenge all this can be in our appearance-obsessed, achievement- oriented society, in which Frances can be viewed as Everywoman, seeking  a way to feel good about herself regardless of external validation, and, equally important to her, validation of her exterior.
