I have a passion for helping people discover who they are and become more at ease with their life experiences.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Clearwater, FL
Accelerated Resolution Therapy allows people to target where anxiety was seeded in them and to undo that way of thinking and living. Anxiety is fear based thinking. When we are no longer fearful of the future, we are free to live in the present experience.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy works so well with depression. In the process, roots of sadness and hopeless feelings are worked through. The outcome is to have let go of old pain, that is holding us back in the present. It's so amazing to see clients become happier and letting go of the pain.
I've worked with Veterans since the start of my career. The transition into civilian life seems to really take a toll on these Warriors. Grief and loss also play a major role in suffering. I find Accelerated Resolution Therapy works wonderfully as a way to sort through the memories and self-concepts. I also work with Veterans in couples counseling. The lifestyle of a military member can be very taxing on marriage/relationships. I like to help couples find a common ground to stand together.
Changing our mindset is not an easy task. Our minds are naturally in protective, negative mode. We have to put in conscious efforts to work the mind like a muscle. I am inspired by CBT methods to help clients stop the negative thought loops and to create refreshing new ways.
I discovered Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) in 2015, when I had a session of it myself. The results amazed me and I became trained as soon as I could. I've been providing ART as a primary modality since!
