Dr. Lowenthal is a clinical psychologist who provides individual psychotherapy and couples counseling. His theoretical orientation is eclectic; he utilizes existential and cognitive-behavioral principles, among others, to treat a range of behavioral health issues, including depression, self-esteem issues, interpersonal conflict, loss, sexuality/LGBT, and adjustment disorders. His primary goal is to provide support to clients and assist them in overcoming obstacles and achieving their goals. He enjoys working with first-time therapy clients, as well as clients who are experienced in therapy and would like another perspective.
Dr. Lowenthal practices with a humanistic perspective and believes that a strong therapist/client rapport is critical to successful treatment. To that end, he strives to create a warm, genuine and authentic connection with his clients so that they can work collaboratively to: determine their needs, establish goals, and achieve those goals. Dr. Lowenthal uses humor, irreverence, and indirect inquiries to spark insight and help clients maintain motivation in therapy and in life.
Dr. Lowenthal also provides consultation for business professionals and leaders. This consultation may take many forms, but is fundamentally based on the power of a safe, confidential space for business leaders to bring dilemmas, or ideas to discuss with an impartial, creative professional.
Dr. Lowenthal earned a doctoral degree from the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology (now William James College), and he earned an undergraduate degree from Virginia Wesleyan College. His clinical experiences are varied and have included working within student counseling centers at Bridgewater State College and University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, a community mental health clinic, a state prison and private settings where he provided psychological assessment and outpatient treatment.
