For 20 years, he has provided psychotherapy to a diverse clientele of individuals and couples, ranging from college students to senior citizens.

Dr. Stillerman’s approach integrates psychodynamic principles with an appreciation for the interconnections between mind, emotion, brain and body. His approach helps clients to explore and overcome conscious and unconscious barriers to life satisfaction, including shame, anger, anxiety, fear of rejection, loss, past trauma, and low self-esteem. In addition, he provides a safe space for creative play that allows people to discover their true passions and ultimately live life with greater freedom and self-acceptance.
