ABOUT YOUR COUNSELOR

 

A college professor, he primarily teaches diagnosis, methods of research, a counseling skills course, and supervises graduate students who are providing psychotherapy. He enjoys sharing his research with fellow psychotherapists through research journal publications and presents his research at professional conferences throughout the United States.

 

Despite varied academic interests, his priority is the very practical business of helping clients meet their goals and reach their full potential. Dr. Wiesner focuses on clients’ strengths and passionate desires and views life and therapy as a zestful adventure and not about problems or people needing to be fixed.

 

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are."
