Frequently Asked Questions

Ross provides psychotherapy that is oriented to his Self-Love Recovery Treatment Program. It is structured and time limited. Like any other treatment program, the initial session determines if the person is a fit or is ready for it.

If therapy in the Self-Love Recovery Program is not a good fit for you, Ross will help you understand the problems/challenges you are currently facing. If applicable, he will provide a diagnosis and give treatment or psychotherapy recommendations.

Ross does see new clients, but often carries a full case load. If interested, please download, fill in, and send the intake form to help@selfloverecovery.com and you will be added to his waiting list. Typically wait times can be between one to four months.

He strongly recommends that if you are in crisis, and he cannot see you right away, see someone else. Do not risk your well-being by waiting. If you feel you are at risk of self-harm, please contact your local national suicide prevention lifeline. USA: 1.800.273.8255 | Canada: 1.833.456.4566.

Ross highly recommends the use of Psychology Today's Psychotherapist Finder. It has the largest data base of any similar search site and allows a prospective client to email and/or call a therapist they wish to hire.

Yes. If you are thinking of hiring Ross as an expert witness, please consult with your attorney before the initial consultation session. $500 per consultation/1 hour is the max he can provide for this purpose. More than that may be considered psychotherapy or counseling, which would disqualify him from being your expert witness.

Ross is not able to answer specific questions or emails sent to him. He receives countless requests to answer questions which often require complex responses, and further discussion. Consider booking a one-time consultation session or becoming a psychotherapy client.

Ross's seminars are educational tools loaded with important information that can be useful for independent self-help work. The seminars cannot replace therapy, but in the absence of it, they have been proven to be very helpful.

All of Ross's work is written and designed for both professionals and a general audience. We have received consistent positive feedback from both type of participants.

Yes, please! Ross welcomes your suggestions. Simply email them to help@selfloverecovery.com for consideration.
