Making the unseen seen
Mental and emotional health is facilitated by many factors. There are no ‘hacks’ or shortcuts to overall well-being. You might find a technique that’s helpful, but the human body/mind/spirit is way more complex than to be reduced to a few “tricks.”
Though clients seek me out specifically for my core treatment of Fear, Anxiety, OCD and Related, the whole person is always taken into account in my practice. My first decade of training and experience successfully focused on General Mental Health (along with Addictions), while care was strongly developed addressing not only disorders (Major Depression, AD/HD, Bipolar, Anxiety, etc.), but also positive goals and strength development (career, life goals, efficiency, relational growth, etc.).
You will not be reduced to a checklist of exposure practices or one simple tool. Thorough assessment is utilized ongoing with all clients, which filters into a more accurate treatment plan.
“There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn’t.”
