Solutions That Work
As a Clinical Psychologist, my focus is in identifying and treating problems experienced by adults and children. Emotional reactions, thinking patterns, beliefs, how and what has been learned and the behaviors associated with these, all affect the social and sexual life of a person. The goal here at Hirsch & Associates is to increase feelings of emotional well-being, self-esteem, self-concept and to broaden coping and problem solving skills. The intent with this focus is to improve these areas within a person to create a holistic healthy person who has a better ability to engage in relationships.
Choosing a Psychologist is one of the most important decisions you can make. You want someone who is caring, knowledgeable and accessible. Someone who is willing to take the time to go over your options with you, and who will treat you as a person. My preferred treatment style is based on positive psychology. This theory covers levels of happiness experienced by individuals over a 40 year time frame. In applying this in practice, I focus on helping the person reduce stress, depression, anxiety and any other problems or concerns the person may have. Utilizing the person's current thinking and believing system, I teach them how to reach their optimal level of success and contentment.
As a motivator, therapist and life coach, I offer effective, long lasting help for people that are suffering from anxiety, personality disorders, fears, PTSD, and depression to name a few. I am also a certified Anger Resolution Therapist. I speak to a variety of support groups on many topics including, but not limited to: people who have had weight loss surgery, sport and team psychology, stress management, enhancing relationships and blended families.
