About

People strive to create meaningful relationships. Many enter psychotherapy because that need isn't being met, wasn't met, or because they fear it won't be met. People feel/behave for reasons often outside awareness. Attempts to master psychological pain determine why people behave consistently, predictably, and sometimes self-destructively. The therapeutic relationship is determined by my ability to provide a safe forum for examining thoughts, feelings, and behaviors by maintaining a nonjudgmental, empathic rapport. Successful treatment integrates cognitive and emotional components of people developing increasing self-awareness. It includes supportive and interpretive interventions, while also leveraging strengths.
When needs for meaningful and satisfying connections are complicated by difficulties, people develop troubling symptoms (anger, sadness, fear, avoidance, or inadequacy). The more chronic the disappointment, the more severe symptoms can become. This is especially true when difficulties occurred early and remain unresolved.
Once maladaptive perceptions are identified/modified; self concept, thinking about others, perceptions about relationships are transformed, which change expectations and behavior. We will work together to resolve symptoms and make important, significant, practical change, leading to increased satisfaction, internal peace, meaningful relationships, and optimal functioning/performance.

Elizabeth Anne Hardy's Groups

Planning to start a group for care givers

Many people caring for family members or friends with dementia, Alzheimer's, developmental disabilities, aphasia, physical decline, etc. rarely have anyone supporting them. Group therapy for caregivers can provide relief, support, practical advice, and time devoted exclusively for them and their needs. Please contact me if interested in forming/joining such a group.
