By Adam Greenberg, LCSW
In today's digital age, finding love or companionship often begins with a swipe. Dating apps have revolutionized the way we approach relationships, offering a seemingly endless pool of potential matches at our fingertips. However, beneath the surface of convenience lies a landscape marked by imbalances, both in the dating world and in mental health. As society embraces the digital era, it's crucial to examine the ramifications of this shift, particularly on individuals' psychological well-being. Dating apps present users with a multitude of options, fostering the illusion of an abundant dating pool. However, research suggests … See full article

Adam Greenberg, LCSWThe Perfect Illusion: Navigating Unrealistic Expectations and Safety Challenges in the Modern Dating World
By Adam Greenberg, LCSW
Navigating the dating world has become increasingly challenging in recent years, partly due to the abundance of information online that paints an idealized picture of the "perfect" mate, which ultimately doesn't exist. This quest for perfection and the sheer amount of data at our fingertips can lead to unrealistic expectations and complicate the dating experience. The internet can distort our perceptions of potential partners. Online dating profiles often encourage users to present themselves in the best possible light, leading to embellishments or minor deceptions. Research from the Association for Psychological Science found … See full article

Steven Lecce, LMHCThe Science Behind Pornography Addiction and Brain-Rewiring
By Steven Lecce, LMHC
Pornography addiction is a complex issue that extends beyond mere lack of willpower. It involves compulsive use of explicit material, leading to profound changes in the brain’s reward system. Understanding the science behind porn addiction sheds light on its effects and the potential for recovery. Research has shown that frequent exposure to pornography can alter the brain’s reward system, leading to tolerance and a compulsive need for more explicit material. The brain rewiring process occurs through repeated exposure to explicit content, causing the brain’s reward center to become desensitized. See full article

Steven Lecce, LMHCCreating an Inclusive Therapy Space for EMDR to Treat Trans Youth
By Steven Lecce, LMHC
As mental health professionals, it is our responsibility to create safe and affirming spaces for all clients, including LGBTQ+ youth. Transgender and gender-diverse individuals face unique challenges related to mental health, and providing effective therapy requires a thoughtful and inclusive approach. In this article, we explore how to establish an affirming environment for trans youth seeking EMDR therapy. Transgender youth often experience higher rates of anxiety, depression, and trauma due to societal discrimination, lack of acceptance, and limited access to supportive resources. See full article

Steven Lecce, LMHCTreating Borderline Personality Disorder with EMDR: A Promising Approach
By Steven Lecce, LMHC
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a complex mental health condition characterized by intense emotional dysregulation, unstable relationships, impulsivity, and identity disturbances. Traditional therapeutic approaches often fall short of addressing the underlying trauma that contributes to BPD. However, emerging evidence suggests that EMDR therapy can be a valuable addition to the treatment toolkit for individuals with BPD. EMDR is a well-established therapeutic technique primarily used for treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It involves … See full article

Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.Coping with Dishonesty in Romantic Relationships
By Walter J. Matweychuk, Ph.D.
Sadly, humans are capable of deceit and dishonesty in all human relationships. However, when dishonesty occurs in romance, it is especially painful. You do not live in a utopian world with saintly beings; sadly, the fallible humans you love sometimes will act dishonestly. Sometimes, they believe it is too painful for them to hurt you with the truth, take the easy way out, and tell you what you want to hear. Other times, they act selfishly and deceive you without regard for your rights. Regardless of their motives, rather than become bitter, give up on love, or put yourself down, it is best to strive to have a … See full article

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.

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
