Betty Deere, MA, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Little Rock
Are you feeling stuck, confused and overwhelmed in your primary relationships? Your health? Life-in-general? Are you tired of trying to effectively communicate your feelings and feeling frustrated instead? As a solution-focused therapist I help you sort through & clarify your strengths, weaknesses and resources -- while creating an effective plan of action. I help you uncover life-long behavior patterns and distortions that are not working and then "reboot" your life. Not a one-size-fits-all therapist, I offer experienced support, direction and guidance through challenging life situations and relationship difficulties. CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE.
My specialities focus on communicating and resolving relationship challenges: whether with a person/partner, a work-related issue, a weight problem, a divorce recovery or a health issue (I'm a cancer surviver). In a comfortable, confidential setting, I support you in creating a life you can live with.
Everyone needs to feel genuinely connected with their Real Self and Purpose in life (the Self before it was adjusted to win approval). I honor and respect each individual's uniqueness and spirituality (regardless of religion or lack of), as each person seeks meaningful connections and commumity in their world.

Betty Deere's Groups

Visualization & Guided Imagery

Our thoughts create our lives, so says Buddha, Henry Ford and a host of other people. I myself visualized my health in specific ways, very successfully; when I was recovering from ovarian cancer 20 years ago. There is massive evidence that visualizing is enormously effective in many areas: illness recovery, happiness & general well-being, sleep enhancement, weight control, etc. Read my article on Visualization, Our Mind Movie. Beginning in mid-August, group is $30; four sessions; men & women welcome; 1-1/2 hours; pay all sessions at beginning of group.
