Ann Allen, PhD, Psychologist in McKinney
WHEN THE STORM COMES FIND A SAFE HARBOR. As a clinical psychologist I provide guidance and support for adults caught in emotional storms. Many people I see are experiencing challenges with 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 and those who are feeling depressed and anxious 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 challenged by relationship issues with loved ones and those experiencing life transitions. These solutions will focus on realistic alternatives in consideration of each person's distinctive characteristics and situation.
I see adults who are seeking a safe harbor from their emotional storms. The healthy and strong individual is the one who seeks shelter when it is needed and is willing to accept responsibility for making the personal changes necessary to enjoy living peacefully after the storm has passed.
