Description

  • Expand and enhance your anxiety treatment options
  • Apply new techniques regardless of your primary treatment orientation
  • Identify and respond to the underlying issues that cause anxiety

When anxious clients come to you for help, they want to feel better now.
Early in my career, I tried the typical behavioral and psychodynamic treatment methods for anxiety and found them to be slow-acting. It was frustrating, too, when seemingly positive results did not last. I needed something else, something different.
In my search to increase therapeutic efficiency and effectiveness, I examined how emotionally-resilient people handled the conflicts in their lives. I realized that, at its core, therapy is a process of facilitating conflict resolution and problem-solving. I discovered that identifying and responding to the underlying factors that create conflict and generate anxiety leads to rapid and effective outcomes.
Four decades later, the concept of therapy as conflict resolution has led me on a gratifying journey to the discovery of ever-more-effective treatment methods. In my practice, visualization techniques and energy therapy innovations have turned out to be especially potent enhancers of anxiety interventions.
Whether your primary orientation utilizes CBT, psychodynamic, family systems, narrative, integrative or other strategies - I will teach you methods to expand and enhance your anxiety treatment options with individuals, couples, and families.
Through live role plays, video demonstrations, case examples, and practice sessions, you will discover new routes to success with anxious clients. And that is not all! You will receive scripts, worksheets, and other materials that you can use to help your clients.
Join me and I will show you new ways to help your anxious clients while taking your practice to the next level.
