Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.Coping with Unrequited Love with Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy
By Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.
It is relatively easy for people to experience unhealthy versions of different negative emotions, which are part of the human experience. Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy encourages people to distinguish between a healthy version of a negative feeling and a harmful version. Once stuck in an unhealthy emotional state, humans often act in self-defeating ways. Furthermore, an unhealthy negative emotion may distort our thinking of future and past events. Although not a negative emotion, romantic love is a highly charged emotional state. When you face the adversity of unrequited love, if you respond with unhealthy emotional disturbance, it is because … See full article

Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.Cultivating Life Acceptance Helps Increase Life Satisfaction
By Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy emphasizes three forms of acceptance: unconditional self-acceptance, unconditional other acceptance, and unconditional life acceptance. It is essential to recognize the importance of cultivating unconditional life acceptance. Unconditional life acceptance may be the form of acceptance least spoken of in REBT. Unconditional life acceptance is the antidote for self-pity, depression, anger, and anxiety in response to the threats to our safety and comfort, losses, failures, undeserved burdens, obstructions, and prizing what others have.

Adam Greenberg, LCSWThe Irreplaceable Role of Therapists: Why Artificial Intelligence Falls Short - Introduction
By Adam Greenberg, LCSW
Artificial intelligence (AI) has witnessed remarkable advancements in recent years, revolutionizing several areas of our lives. However, in the realm of mental health and therapy, there are fundamental aspects that AI struggles to replicate. Despite its efficiency in processing data and performing tasks, AI falls short in replacing the invaluable role of therapists. This article explores three key reasons why AI cannot fully replace therapists and cites relevant sources to support these claims. See full article

Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.How to Profit from Constructive Criticism with Help from REBT
By Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.
People who develop their potential and enjoy healthy relationships with others are open to negative feedback. Constructive criticism is valuable. Those who listen to it with an open mind and then learn from it tend to grow more fully than those who are closed off and defensive. Rejecting all criticism as invalid is likely a sign of a blinding ego or low discomfort tolerance for making beneficial personal changes. Of course, it is also imprudent to go to the other extreme and assume all negative feedback is valid. The point is to be capable of taking accurate criticism and using it but not disturbing yourself when someone gives you invalid criticism. See full article

Blaire Melius Counseling LCSW PMHCBaby Blues or Postpartum Depression? Knowing the Difference & Therapy for New Moms
By Blaire Melius Counseling LCSW PMHC
Becoming a parent can be an incredible experience, but it can also be a really hard one. Many new moms experience a wide range of emotions after birth, such as mood swings, tearfulness, and feelings of overwhelm. This is more commonly referred to as the "baby blues." Though this is very typical, occurring in approximately 80% of new moms, these emotions can sometimes evolve into something more significant - postpartum depression. So, what's the difference? And why can it be important for new moms to seek therapy? See full article

Sherry Katz, LCSWReasons to Consider Family Therapy for Your Relationship
By Sherry Katz, LCSW
Family therapists study the interactional patterns among family members, for the purpose of encouraging the participants to say what they want and how they feel, in a manner which increases the chance of being understood by another family member. Because family members are attached by their emotions to one another, each person is sensitive to the emotion based condition, wishes, and expectations of other family members. Whether silently received, showing no outward response or interest, greatly animated, or some other clear emotion, family members are always affected by the feelings and views of others.

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.Four Stages of Psychoanalysis
By Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.
Psychodynamic therapy—that is, therapy that is based on the psychoanalytic model—is the oldest form of therapy and most probably the deepest. While many therapies today are symptom oriented, psychoanalysis is oriented towards relieving a client from the unconscious blocks that prevent healthy functioning. Psychoanalysts believe that if you help a client to overcome a symptom, another one will appear to replace it. Because it is a therapy that probes deep into the unconscious, it takes more time, but once you go through it, all of your symptoms will diminish. Below I have delineated four stages of psychodynamic psychotherapy. See full article

Jordana Nolan, LMHCI Don't Want to Go! A Practical Guide for Dealing with Social Anxiety
By Jordana Nolan, LMHC
Have you ever felt this way? I wasn’t always this way. In fact, I remember being somewhat extroverted in college. I would jump at the chance to go out at night, see my friends, go to parties. My anxiety crept up on me slowly, like honey in a jar. It didn’t help moving from the city to the suburbs where it felt extremely isolating. There would be days when I would see nobody on the sidewalks. In my defense, my anxiety seemed to also be a product of my environment. I knew I had to make a change for fear of becoming someone who would become agoraphobic. If you feel similarly, it’s time to make a change, … See full article

Cynthia Peikoff, LCSWStaring at the Cracks in the Ceiling
By Cynthia Peikoff, LCSW
Are you feeling like a rat caught up in the rat race? As a counselor I see clients in my office for one hour of their busy lives per week. They come to me with worries, dilemmas, in moods of all type. What amazes me about them is how accomplished and hard working they are. Most enjoy their chosen work. Many have lovely homes in beautiful Orange County, California. A lot of them workout regularly. On weekends, their productivity continues by taking care of shopping, cooking, cleaning, making house repairs or driving to Costco to save money buying in bulk. See full article

Dylan Mariah, LMHC, RNUsed To Be
By Dylan Mariah, LMHC, RN
There's this great song by Gotye that describes the shift in a relationship from feeling current and connected to someone, to seeing their "ex" as "just someone they used to know." It's called "Somebody That I Used to Know." There is a version of it you might enjoy performed by Walk Off The Earth. The musicians are incredible; creative in their use of one instrument between the 5 of them and in their sharing of the vocals. Sometimes those shifts in a relationship are exquisitely painful because we are not always on the same page. One wants out and the other doesn't. After the break, for whatever reason, our identity changes completely; from someone who was in relationship, to someone single. See full article

Diane Thorp, MSW, LCSWIs Anger Ruining Your Relationships and Even Your Life Overall? Try This instead...
By Diane Thorp, MSW, LCSW
The key to having what is actually ‘healthy anger’ is that it requires self-awareness, open communication, and the ability to self-soothe. When you can identify and then separate your thoughts and feelings, you’ll be much more receptive towards alternative perspectives, which will lead to your ability to problem-solve. What unfortunately often happens is your anger remains bottled up which in turn can make you feel as though you are losing control, seeing red, and even scare those that you love. This can stop you dead in your tracks from moving forward and developing a deeper intimacy with those that you care about; friends, family, and others. See full article

Lynn Margolies, Ph.D.How to live with your (newly returned) “grown-up” child
By Lynn Margolies, Ph.D.
Relationships between parents and their “grown up kids” typically improve when kids go away to college, becoming more cooperative and equal. Of course it’s easier to get along when living apart. But also, when parents have limited say over/access to what their young adult kids are doing, struggles around autonomy and control become irrelevant and the power structure changes. Parents let go, and teens no longer feel the need to push them away to exercise independence. But what happens to this developmental achievement when kids return home for an extended time?

Sherry Katz, LCSWWhat Was Hidden Behind Your Pre-Coronavirus Mask?
By Sherry Katz, LCSW
Each day we see a fragmented and chaotic response in many major systems responding to the serious, fundamental, and thorough breakdown of areas we considered reliable and steadfast. These larger scope flaws and inadequacies are serious enough to show there were weaknesses in certain systems for a long time prior to now. Essentially the medical masks we wear for protection against coronavirus replaced the everyday masks we used for many years to hide from uneasy questions about systems in our shared lives. One level of system examination available to all and each of us, is the search within the deep areas of our identity, values, daily living priorities, … See full article

Dr. Leonard GallagherSocial Distancing Impact
By Dr. Leonard Gallagher
Do we like change? Sometimes. Do we like change we do not create? No. Whew! What a month March was. It started like most every other March for us. Anticipating spring, spring break and warming temperatures was normal. None of us knew what was coming. We did not know a new normal was coming. Social distancing has altered our life as the new normal. Perhaps we work from home. Perhaps we are not allowed to work. Perhaps our kids or us were in school. No one is attending school, not in person anyway. We no longer go to movie theaters, concert venues, band concerts, school activities or sporting events. When we buy groceries, we must carefully consider … See full article

Robert C. Ciampi, LCSWThe "Invisibility" of Mental Illness
By Robert C. Ciampi, LCSW
Physical illness and disease has always been viewed differently from mental illness. With physical illness, many have pointed out, there is a quantifiable or measurable aspect in that a physician can see, with the right instrumentation, bodily processes that are impinged, torn, broken, swollen, invaded by a mass or tumor, penetrated by accident or violence, and other observable abnormalities to the body. Children understand from an early age that if they get a “boo boo” such as a scratch, cut, or scrape it can easily be remediated by a caring parent and with a simple band aid and a hug. In the case of a more severe trauma, we are taught that the skill of our doctors, nurses, and … See full article
