Are you experiencing some of these difficulties ?
I specialize in therapy for people tangled up in difficulties like these. Most of these things operate on a completely automatic basis and they can vary in intensity, duration, and complexity. They can operate outside of a person’s awareness even while taking over the individual’s emotional life and contributing to unhealthy coping responses. Importantly, they can interfere with our healthy emotional responses to the world and ourselves that are necessary for understanding our circumstances, making choices, and taking relevant action to address our needs. Unaddressed, these problems can eventually undermine our emotional and physical health, autonomy, relationship quality, coping efforts, and our overall potential
Your decision to begin therapy is an important step toward living the life you want
Dr. Elliott’s therapy approach emphasizes compassion and genuine efforts to connect with the person tangled up in these difficulties in order to clearly distinguish the person from their problems. Immediate efforts are made to mobilize a working partnership aimed at understanding the person and getting to the emotional bottom of the individual’s particular difficulties. Constant encouragement is offered for the highest levels of self-regard and engagement during the challenging work required to free up the person for meaningful and lasting change.
