As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist I help clients who are current/previous Military Service Members deal with anxiety/depression, and other psychological problems.
There are behaviors that can't be controlled through rational thought, but emerge based on prior conditioning from the environment and other external, internal stimuli. I help clients to be "problem focused" and "action oriented".
I help them select specific strategies that can address their problems, and achieve personal and professional goals by unlocking their full potential. My goal is to help clients realize that it is our thinking that causes us to feel and act the way we do...positive or negative.
I help individuals, families, and couples in therapy view obstacles in their lives as opportunities, and believe they ultimately make the decision to change, or not in their lives. I help them to recognize unhelpful or destructive patterns of thinking and reacting, and help them to modify, or replace them with more realistic/helpful ones.
If we experience unwanted feelings and behaviors, we need to identify the thinking that is causing them.
