It is absolutely imperative that you find a counselor or therapist who understands your situation. Would you go to a sleep specialist to treat an eye injury? Would you visit a podiatrist for a heart condition? Like choosing a doctor, your choice of a mental health professional should first be based on the issues he or she treats. For your reference, the following is a list of issues I treat:
Victims of Emotional and Psychological Abuse
*Christian Counseling available upon request.
People pleasing, inability to say no, suppressed emotions, lack of assertiveness, fear of upsetting others, chronic feelings of obligation, identity confusion.
Victims of College Campus Predators
Rapid Resolution Therapy®
The primary method of intervention I use with my cliients is called Rapid Resolution Therapy® or RRT.
If you have been stuck and unable to successfully change your feelings, thoughts or behaviors, it is likely that you are being affected by experiences from your past. These experiences can range from something as “normal” as a sharp word from a teacher or parent to something as terrible as rape, torture and war.
Unlike other forms of treatment, with RRT it is not necessary to relive past events or experience any pain. Rather, RRT uses a series of stories, images and metaphors to give the client a different way of thinking about the situation that is bothering them. Rapid Resolution Therapy® is also fast - it can alleviate symptoms in as little as 1 to 3 sessions!
Jennifer's Personal Testimony: In 2002, a professor in graduate school told me I would never make it as a therapist. and she strongly suggested that I quit the profession. Those words haunted me for thirteen years. In September of 2015, I attended my very first RRT training. All the feelings of insecurity I had were wiped away in the first three hours of that training! RRT has changed the way I think about that experience, and the change was permanent. Once you see something a certain way, you can never "un-see it." I have not once, not ever, experienced a lack of confidence about my skills as a therapist since that day. RRT works!
