WHEN THE STORM COMES, FIND A SAFE HARBOR. As a clinical psychologist I provide treatment for adults who are caught in emotional storms. Many people I see are experiencing challenges with very difficult people with whom they have close relationships. Others are grieving significant losses and life transitions related to retirement, aging, and illness. I also help those who have difficulty managing anger and impulsive behaviors. I support and treat adults who experience feelings of depression or anxiety and state that they want to 'get their life back'. The safety of a therapeutic relationship may provide hope and realistic solutions for weathering emotional storms.
I believe that there are effective short term, practical, and uncomplicated therapeutic solutions that can be immediately helpful to those who are experiencing many forms of emotional distress. These solutions will prepare the distressed individual to manage their emotional distress without the need for lengthy therapeutic time and expense.
I see adults who are interested in finding sustained solutions for relief of their emotional distress. These are adults who are willing to accept personal responsibility for making the changes necessary to live a peaceful life in the present. These concepts are described in my newly published book, FIND YOUR GIFTS INSIDE (www.findyourgiftsinside.com).
