I'm a clinical psychologist and I write a blog about psychotherapy issues called After Psychotherapy. I also blog for Psychology Today and PsychCentral.

As a young man, I published a couple of works of genre fiction and I still write fiction, though lately my website and my new book on psychological defense mechanisms has taken most of my time.

I work with clients all over the work by Skype video and I love my practice. I have three children, two in college and one in high school. Apart from writing and my practice, I study classical piano, spend my summers in Colorado near Rocky Mountain National Park and enjoy my family. Oh, and I cook.

The most perfectly structured novel ever written. Another one of my favorites, and a comfort to read.

“People with parents who consistently let them down emotionally and who failed to provide what was needed rarely feel safe in their adult relationships.”
Joseph Burgo, Why Do I Do That?

“blinding yourself to the emotional poverty of your childhood might mean you can’t see how that past plays a role in your unhappy marriage.”
Joseph Burgo, Why Do I Do That?

“1. Because of our lengthy, vulnerable childhood – where for so many years we rely upon our parents to meet our needs and protect us from the dangers of the world – the issue of dependency lies at the core of the human experience. If our needs aren’t met during infancy when we’re utterly vulnerable and helpless, if our parents make us feel unsafe in the world from early on, it will shape our ability to trust and depend upon other people for the rest of our lives. Consider”
