I have been a clinical social worker/psychotherapist for over 30 years. My specialties are depression, codependency, and emotional abuse. In my work with you I would have you identify childhood relationships and how they have contributed to issues in your current relationships. I would work with you to make changes in patterns from these early days. I would help you to look at how you think about things, with a goal of developing more positive thinking. This has been shown to make positive changes in the brain. I would work with you on becoming more aware of what your body is feeling, so that you can focus on relaxing your body and thus calming your mind. I would help you to learn relaxation techniques to accomplish this.
