We start with stabilization (based on the protocol developed at the University of Kansas).  I’m not going to ask you things like and how does that make you feel.  Instead, we’re going to work on immediate needs necessary for functioning and -as much as possible- immediate relief of presenting symptoms.

The next phase involves helping you to be your strongest and most resourced.  Finally, once stabilized and resourced, we move into the deeper work which is meant to address and resolve some of the causes of anxiety or depression.
