"Many individuals come to Sarasota Rapid Resolution Therapy because they are suffering from issues such as PTSD, anxiety, grief, and depression. Those individuals who come for Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) have found that traditional "talk therapy" is not helping to move them from painful events of the past or they want a specific issue cleared. In most cases RRT treatments can be completed in as little as two or three sessions. Many people prefer RRT over spending months or years in weekly traditional therapy sessions. The desired change is quick and lasting."

"Parenting can be hard. Do you feel like you are spending the majority of your days yelling, arguing or pleading with your child or teen? Trying to sort through the sadness, anxiety or anger is difficult for you and your child. Managing it all feels overwhelming and stressful. Every child experiences emotional ups and downs. When the moodiness or poor behaviors begin to negatively affect their outside worlds is when the problem has really begun. Stop blaming yourself for your child’s misbehavior or your teen shutting you out. All behavior has meaning and together we can work to understand the meaning behind your child's behavior. "

"Sometimes our inner critic can be relentless by telling us we aren’t good enough, strong enough, smart enough, skinny enough, outgoing enough, attractive enough, or likeable enough to do something. That voice can become so common that we don’t even question the validity of it anymore. It eventually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because at some point we begin viewing the world through that lens of never being able to measure up. We then begin to seek out information that agrees with our inner critic. We can also misread others’ comments, gestures or facial expressions so that it aligns with our own doubts about ourselves."
