Liesel's approach is tailored to each individual client. Briefly, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) combines two very effective kinds of psychotherapy – Cognitive Therapy and Behavior Therapy. In a nutshell, Behavior Therapy helps one weaken the connections between troublesome situations and one's habitual reactions to them (ex: fear, depression, rage, self defeating behaviors). Cognitive therapy teaches an individual how certain thinking patterns are causing one's symptoms by giving a person a distorted picture of what's going on in his/her life, thus, making one feel anxious, depressed, angry or provoking one into self defeating behaviors.
Liesel addresses diverse issues: Stress Management, Anxiety, Depression, Loss and Bereavement, Suicide and Crisis Intervention, Relationship Difficulties (Couple Counselling), Adolescense Difficulties (Youth Counselling), Crisis, Anger Management, Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, Chronic Illness.
