About Dr. Blum
I have had the life-long privilege of being able to work closely with people of all ages, races and creeds. The effectiveness of my methods is based on my commitment to conscientious, discerning practice, on a path of wisdom and compassion. I believe that self-determination, awareness and personal responsibility comprise both the process and purpose of a meaningful and satisfying life.
I began my career as a mental health professional in 1976 as a counselor in a locked facility for juvenile offenders. I learned a great deal about how psychological distress affects behavior and destroys lives by learning from the youngsters in this facility. I have devoted my entire life to providing effective psychological treatments for people throughout their life span, but I’ve never outgrown my respect and love for teens in trouble.
