Change is an inevitable part of life. The lack of change or too much change can overwhelm us and derail our growth. No one escapes hardship and stress. During these times we need the trust, respect, and empathy of an impartial professional especially when family and friends are just too close to the matter. With more than 20 years of clinical practice, I've found that the healthier person reaches out for help beyond their immediate sphere. I see myself as a guide facilitating my patients' healthy risk taking and helping them manifest their visions for a better future.
As a cognitive-behavioral therapist (CBT), including Mindfulness-based (MBCT), I focus on identifying stressors, overcoming blocks and finding solutions. I encourage "self" awareness, acceptance, acknowledgement and appreciation. The most rewarding part of my work is to see people change, move on and reach their full potential.
As a Clinical Psychologist I hold numerous certifications: Nutrition, Lifestyle and Wellness Coaching, Substance Abuse, Domestic Violence, Neuro-Psychological Testing, and Employee Assistance. In addition to face-face session, I can offer on-line coaching/counseling through my web pages, see DrArleneUnger.com
