Hi, my name is dr. Melissa, lady psychologist, at Legacy counseling service in Broken Arrow Oklahoma. Thanks for joining me today today, I want to talk a little bit about how therapy can be helped. A lot of people have a hard time understanding how a psychologist or a therapist might be able to help them if they haven’t experienced the same types of things or they don’t know a person’s history real. Well, I’m in the learning someone’s history in about their life and things that have happened to them or something that you know the psychologist will be talking with you about over the course of treatment. But I like to think about therapy is by thinking about being on a mountain, so you’ll have to forgive my drawing. I am not an artist, but this is one way that I like to think about it. So we are all. Everybody in life is kind of climbing their own Mountainstruggles in different areas, but someone therapy – you know we’re focusing on your struggle here. So here’s you, climbing the mountain – and you might be so close to the mountain that it’s really difficult for you to see. What’S coming ahead or it’s difficult for you to understand what happened before so here’s me or whoever the psychologist or therapist that you’re I’m hopefully would work with. So here’s me I’m climbing my own Mountain to because we’re kind of all in this the life together doing life together. But here’s me as a psychologist right, so I have a different vantage point of you on your Mountain. Then you do on your Mountain.

So part of my job as a psychologist is to really help you see and pull back a little bit and see the areas where you’re struggling see how there might be a theme or the pattern in the way that you’re, climbing your mountain or the specific rock. That kind of keep coming, upas your climbing a mountain and it to it to give you some more skills, so I might give you a carabiner. I might give you a stronger rope. We might say you know what let’s get a climbing team together for you, so we really want to think about what. How can we help you do life better? How can I help you see areas that you struggled in the past and if there might be any themes in those areas that you’re not aware of? How can we give you different skill? Different tools increase your level of support, so that you have more hope and gain more confidence and really feel like. You know how to address different obstacles in life, because the bottom line is we’re kind of all doing this together. We’Re always going to have obstacles in life are always going to have stressors, but there’s a there’s a lot of ways that we can buffer that so that it becomes easier to do so. Tulsa Counseling Services This is just one way that I like to think about how therapy can beApple for a person. If you have any questions, you are welcome to visit me at www. Legacy.

Melissa, lady from Legacy counseling service thanks for joining me today. Tulsa Counseling Services Today, I want to talk with you about generalized anxiety, disorder, 4 person with generalized anxiety disorder. They worry about a lot of different things, almost everyday all day long, so it tends to be a very constant worry that is a little bit more extreme than other people. They have a hard time controlling their worries. They know that maybe they shouldn’t be worried about something, but it just keeps coming up for them. A person with this condition has a very hard time. Relaxing they often feel irritable. They often feel tired because of the physical stress of worry, and also because they may not be sleeping well at night because of the worry they may have headaches, stomach aches muscle aches. They may have unexplained physical pain. Sometimes they will have a lot of sweating or be light light headed or out of breath. There’S a lot of physical components that come with constant, worry and then, of course, there’s a lot of the cognitive parts of worried.
