Anxiety is one of those things that seems like most people have heard of but don't seem to understand. I'm an anxiety and trauma therapist.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Algonquin, IL
I've always been told that a theoretical orientation is where you believe the problem stems from. I believe that people have these automatic negative thoughts- "I'm a failure", "I'm worthless", "I'm not good enough", and these nasty thoughts are what drive a lot of what is going on with you (and not in a good way).
I am an expert with anxiety and trauma, and I want to be able to help everybody who struggles with this! It's an awful situation to be in and if it's left untreated, it will only get worse. So, pick up the phone and let's have a strategy session :-D
I use this treatment orientation with anger management, and it works beautifully! Clients, who originally struggled with anger and nothing else was working, saw a amazing difference. I love it!
