Healing Special Relationships
Frank West has practiced psychotherapy and family counseling for over fifty years. He holds a master’s degree in divinity from the Union Theological Seminary in New York, where he specialized in the psychology of religion. He completed his graduate and postgraduate studies in psychology at the American Foundation of Religion and Psychiatry, the William Alanson White Institute, the City College of New York, and the Nathan Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy. Frank served as lecturer and supervisor in both psychoanalysis and marital/family therapy at the Blanton-Peale Institute, the Union Theological Seminary, and the Millhauser Research Laboratory at NYU Medical Center.
He maintained a private psychotherapy practice in Manhattan for twenty-five years before relocating his practice to Guilford, Connecticut, in 1984. Soon after moving to Connecticut, he and his late wife, Martha, began studying A Course in Miracles, whose psycho-spiritual precepts have since become the cornerstone of his work with patients.
Frank is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and a founding member of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors. He continues to maintain a full schedule of private and group therapy patients.
