Welcome to my home on the web! I’m Dr. Seth Grossman, and I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Florida. As you look around my site, you may notice that I am different from many other psychologists. While many focus on correcting your latest symptom via manualized therapy, I am fully committed to finding the very best individualized approach for you that gets at the root difficulty of your concerns. This is because you are not a symptom or a disorder… you are a person who deserves to live your best life possible.
I consider this holistic, individualized approach to be the cornerstone of everything I do. Modern treatment approaches are largely focused on what works for the most people. This is only one measure, and it’s important, but the personal connection and comprehensive individual understanding I emphasize is the factor that leads to lasting changes beyond immediate symptom reduction.
While the change you are seeking is ultimately for the better, you’re likely hesitant to undertake the journey. It’s understandable; change can be threatening, and you might be really uncomfortable with the idea that the habits and rationalizations you’ve used throughout your life to get by (your “defense mechanisms” that you both love and hate) may need anything from a small tweak to a full reworking.
But these are our human roadblocks. The effects of these can be subtle, like, “I really could be doing better,” or they can be devastating, keeping you in a rut or repeatedly confronting the same problems, year after year in just slightly different forms.
