Are you noticing subtle changes in your outllook on life; eg, less interest n your surroundings; in your apprearance? Have you put off returning calls from family & friends? Have these & other changes ;lingered longer than you'd like to admit? We've all experienced mood fluctuations from time to time that are seen as appropriate fot the situation. It's when we're unable to regulate our moods as is appropriate, & for a sustained period of time of 2 weeks or more, that the time has come to seek professional help.
My approach to therapy is person-centered; a humanist, @ heart, I value the purity embedded in Cognitive Behavioral therapy, (CBT). Over time, it serves as a catalyst to change a person's perspective; & ultimately change behaviors that were once the outcome of emotional reactors that inhibited.cognitive functioning.
I am preparing to start a SMOKING CESSATION Group to collaborate with each participant's family doctor's recommendation to live a nicotine-free lifesyle. Group members will complete the program with personal tools that proved to be effectiove in reducing &/or alleviating nicotine cravings
