Counseling Focus Areas
Assertiveness & Social Communication Skills
Assertiveness and social skills are about making connections and having equality with others. Developing these skills can reduce anxiety and improve relationships. In fact, assertiveness training was originally designed to treat anxiety.
Autism (ASD) & Asperger’s
People with ASD tend to think in pictures, while most other people think in words/emotions. This explains why it can be so hard for people with ASD to interact socially: they sense differently than other people.
Life’s Meaning & Purpose Questions
Using Logo and Philosophical Therapy approaches, clients can find practical ways to find purpose and meaning in life no matter what happens.
Developing skills with others with similar mental and behavior problems to yours to overcome them. Currently offering groups in DBT, anxiety/depression, social skill/assertiveness development& Autism managment.
Anxiety & Worry
The word worry comes from an old English word meaning to strangle. We work together to break the stranglehold of worry and anxiety.
Obsessions, Compulsions, & Scrupulosity
Obsessions and compulsions are attempts to relieve anxiety and fear…but the obsessions and compulsions just take over your life.
