Goal is for clients to make changes they want sooner, with lasting positive effects on themselves, others in their lives, and their environments. I believe that it is important that the approach being used makes sense to my clients. I ask my clients if the approach makes sense and invite them to question it. Also believe it is important to quickly develop well-defined goals based on my client's priorities for therapy, and for them to have relevant things to work on in between sessions. Therapy is individualized. Work with somatic issues (using EMDR), life coaching. www.markrushphd.com
EMDR, anxiety (e.g., panic, PTSD, OCD, phobias, social, etc.,) depression, relationship issues, couples counseling, changing patterns in relationships, estrangement, family counseling, stress management, addiction, and phase of life issues(e.g., life coaching, career change, mid-life crisis, etc.) Do anger and anxiety management groups. Diabetes II coping skills.
Am accepting self pay clients. Have experience doing therapy with gay and lesbian individuals, including in couples counseling. I have experience seeing people from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Have flexible hours. I work with MINDFULNESS. Not accepting Medicare or Medicaid. Focus tailored to client priorities.

Anger Management, Also Anxiety Mangagement

Skill based groups around learning to use emotional states such as anger and anxiety to your benefit. Learning how to allow these emotions to process through you and then decide what to do after you have calmed down. People in the group help each other find interesting ways to utilize and apply the skills. A group can be very effective for either of these issues. People don't usually make good choices when angry or anxious. Learn the thoughts related to these issues and how to handle them. Also use emotions as tools.
