My go to approaches for treating anxiety include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. By using CBT, I have helped my clients learn to change the faulty or negative thinking that causes anxiety to arise. Via Mindfulness, I have helped my clients to learn how to incorporate breathing and meditation practices to control the anxiety's obsessive thinking and physical symptoms.
I have worked in the field of Addiction for 20+ years. I have been trained in numerous approaches to treat addiction issues including CBT, Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention, Motivational Interviewing, The Matrix Model, and Seeking Safety. I ran daily substance abuse groups and was in a a supervisory role for over 4 years. I hold a Clinical Addictions Counselor license, a gambling counseling certification, and the Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) certification.
I have been treating anger management issues for 15+ years. I ran an anger management group for 8 years. I use CBT to treat anger management issues to teach my clients how to monitor their anger, identify triggers, and look for cues. I provide my clients with ways to respond to anger-provoking situations instead of reacting to them. I also teach my clients the connection between stress and anger, and we discuss how anger is in reality a secondary emotion.
