CBT is my preferred treatment orientation because it can quickly help you identify and cope with specific emotional challenges. It works by helping people understand their thoughts and the way they influence behavior. It enables people to develop an understanding of their disorder, and then take positive steps to change it.
DBT teaches patients skills to cope with, and change, unhealthy behaviors and helps clients find ways to accept themselves, feel safe, and manage their emotions.
When people are fearful of something, they tend to avoid the feared objects, activities or situations. Exposure therapy is a technique where a person is gradually exposed to the situation that causes them distress. The goal is to create a safe environment in which a person can reduce anxiety, decrease avoidance of dreaded situations, and improve quality of life.
Parents often struggle with helping their children navigate adolescence. They are looking to build relationships with their children that are more connected, loving, and joyful. Specialized coaching helps parents feel more confident about their parenting decisions and helps those decisions align with their shared values. Coaching’s goal is to help parents to feel calm and empowered, while providing them an avenue to help their children achieve independence and self-confidence.
Do you find yourself fearful or worrying to the point where you can’t fully participate in your own life? Feeling too-often restless? Unable to fall or stay asleep? Afraid of social encounters? Overcome by the sensation that you’re losing control of your mind or body? Do your thoughts loop and loop into knots? These are just some of the symptoms of anxiety disorder.
Is your outlook often hopeless? Have you lost interest in things and activities you used to enjoy? Do you shift between feeling anxious, irritable, and fatigued? Sleep more than normal? Have you noticed changes in your appetite and weight? Do your emotions feel uncontrollable, or do you feel just nothing? These symptoms, along with others, can be indications of depression.
