I like helping people find contentment and happiness in their lives. I believe it is important to understand one's self and one's personal values and to make choices that are positive and life-affirming. I have had extensive experience working with people having experienced trauma and loss, relationship problems, and who have substance abuse problems. Creative people are also one of my specializations. My training is primarily psycho-dynamic along with cognitive-behavioral orientation. I believe mindfulness, spirituality and forgiveness are ways of helping alter patterns of behavior that can keep us stuck in our lives.

Lydia Bangtson's Groups

Interpersonal Relations

I am looking for people interested in being part of a group that explores our relationships to each other. I want to focus on improving communication and expression of one's emotions and needs. I also want to focus on development of empathy and compassion towards others. I believe a group environment offers a unique way to learn about how we are with each other, and to grow in our ability to relate to each other.
