excerpt from "Negative Emotions Are Key to Well-Being"

March 22, 2017

I think this nicely sums up the goal of my therapeutic approach:

 

"Instead of backing away from negative emotions, accept them. Acknowledge how you are feeling without rushing to change your emotional state. Many people find it helpful to breathe slowly and deeply while learning to tolerate strong feelings or to imagine the feelings as floating clouds, as a reminder that they will pass."
