I enjoy helping clients accept and like themselves, organize around strengths, achieve greater emotional presence, think clearly, and let go of shame, guilt and old habits of emotional survival. I believe therapy should lead to better decisions, as well as improved quality of life and relationships.

  • Control Mastery

Anders Greenwood Practice Description
Are you facing changes or challenges that you want to work through in safety and confidence? Troubled by work, school, relationships, or parenting? Fighting depression, anxiety or life-limiting rules? Ready for a new beginning? For better and worse, our experience is shaped by expectations and habits that are maintained by loyalty to important relationships, and by cycles of confirming experience. They affect our relationships, happiness, and success. Therapy can help. Hurtful expectations and habits can be retired, and new habits of relating to life and others can be implicitly learned, or chosen and implemented. In my practice, therapy is as diverse as my clients, following from their deepest and increasingly explicit goals, and their changing moods and preferences. In fifteen plus years as a therapist, I have worked with people facing challenges associated with growing up, parenting, generational differences, displacement, work communication and organization, career transitions, substances, sexual preference, ADHD, learning disorders, multiple stressors, grief, depression, anxiety, abuse, neglect, bizarre experiences and relationship issues. My clients often fear that their problems will be overwhelming. Paradoxically, even when experiences are frustrating, grim or frightening for clients, sharing them in therapy is typically relieving, enlivening and even joyful. Alternatives then become possible.
