Clinical Social Worker in White Plains, NY
Are you tired of feeling drained by the people who you love? Self care is so important and usually at the bottom of your to do list. I can help you balance your priorities so they make sense.
To me, anxiety is a fancy word for fear. If fear is blocking you from making good decisions it's time to feel SAFE. Together we can accept the feelings and face what is. Learn new ways to tolerate and decrease distress. This is a skill I can teach you. New and different choices can keep you from falling in the same hole over again.
When is one too many? When a thousand isn't enough. (Chinese Proverb) If you are trying to have just one, ask yourself how did drinking become so important that it's worth the struggle? Have you tried to cut down or quit before? Do you switch from drinking to weed back to drinking? If you are trying to cut down or quit, I can help.
My goal is to find the seeds of what is important to you and show you how to meet your goal. The best thing about Motivational Interviewing is that it taught me how to listen for the seeds. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. With MI, everyone has their own motivation. We just have to look for it together.
ACT helps us see the truth from the fantasy. It is empowering to know what is real from what is unreal so that we can focus our energy on changing what we can. The commitment is to change what we can and make peace with the rest.
Often medication doesn't work. We need to use the built-in pharmacy to change our mood. Meditation is just one great way to do that. It can lower anxiety, help with sleep issues, decrease depression and stress levels, and many other problems that crop up. Mindfulness is a different outlook on our high stress lifestyles. Let me teach you some techniques.
