I Treat Anxiety (OCD, General Anxiety, Social anxiety, Phobias and Panic), Depression, Posttraumatic Stress, Insomnia, and Stuttering, as well as Relationship Challenges



My approach with anxiety (OCD, General Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Phobias) is to teach you in tolerable steps to disrespect what you fear (with different behavior and rational disputation) until the automatic part of your psychology calms down about it.



Resistance creates and worsens panic. I teach you skills of non-resistance so your panic does not amplify. Gradually reducing the amount of your behavior which resists the panic experience reduces fear of the panic and decreases your symptoms.


Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD):

With PTSD I first desensitize you to your injuries and resulting anxieties. Then I train the automatic part of you to risk hopeful behavior in the present, so you are no longer cooperating with the bad rule you have learned that a bad surprise is always coming.



If you are depressed you have stopped trusting your abilities and/or luck. I will help you figure out where you stopped trusting. Then I will help you increase behavior that bets on yourself and your chances and creates more possibility of things you want actually happening. I believe this is the best way to help you with depression.


Relationship Challenges with Important Others:

If you struggle with a child, teen, significant other, boss, employee, professional or friend, I can work directly with them or directly with the two of you, but there is another option: Sometimes it is effective and much easier for me to work with you alone (1) to help you translate their behavior into its unconscious messages (using attachment theory), and (2) to design ways for you to communicate more effectively in return.
