A good fit between therapist and patient is an essential ingredient in forming an effective working alliance, assuming the therapist has strong academic credentials. That is why I encourage patients to do their research. The best way to determine whether people can work well together is to talk. There should be no charge for an initial phone consultation to evaluate this. If after a phone visit it doesn't feel like a good fit, I will help you find someone who is.My training provides me with a strong foundation in psychological testing and treatment incorporating behavioral and psychodynamic theory and practice. This allows me to make an accurate assessment and treatment plan that best suits an individual or couple. I have published articles internationally, chapters in textbooks, edited a Women's Health Encyclopedia.Additionally I have served 38 years on the faculty of Northwestern University Medical School, Department of Psychiatry. Forensic expert and therapist in custody issues, addictions, personality disorders, post traumatic stress, and many litigation related issues serving as an expert witness.Dr. Jaffe is available on Mon., Wed. and Fri.
